#TrackNigeria: Alhaji Ishaq Hadejia, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Jigawa has advised media organisations to be fair in their reportage during the 2019 general elections..

Hadejia gave the advice this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Dutse on Wednesday.

He said said that the media as the fourth estate of the realm was expected not to be bias.

The chieftain said that because the public relied wholly on the media organisations for happenings, especially during elections, they were expected to report issues exactly as they occurred.

“Media practitioners are expected to remain neutral at all times because they are the mirrors of the society.

He also cautioned journalists not to engage in any act that could jeopardise peace and unity in the country (NAN).
