Presidential aide Femi Adesina says President Muhammadu Buhari would continue with the mandate of serving Nigeria and implementing policies for the betterment of the nation until May 29, 2023.
Mr Adesina stated this at the sideline of the 2022 Campus Journalism Awards organised by Youths Digest in Abuja.
“The mandate is for four years, and those four years do not lapse until May 29, till the very last day, governance will continue. The president will continue to serve Nigeria,” Mr Adesina said.
He also advised journalists, especially young students, to adhere to the ethics of the profession and avoid being used to propagate negative ills in society.
“The profession has its positive and negative parts, there are those who use journalism for all the despicable things.
“They pull down others; they do untrue stories, they blackmail and all others. But if you are determined to become an ethical journalist, certainly not even the sky is your limit; you will go as far as you can in the profession,” he said.
Also, Mannir Dan-Ali, director, Media Trust Limited, publishers of Daily Trust Newspaper, encouraged young journalists to contribute meaningfully towards developing the nation.
On his part, Gidado Shuaibu, executive director, Youths Digest, said the annual award started in 2019 to encourage youths to engage in journalism as a profession and work within ethics.
