Minister of Information, Mohammed Idris says his ministry is working to resolve the issues around the detention of Daniel Ojukwu who works for Foundation for Investigative Journalism (FIJ).

Speaking on Saturday night at the Press Freedom and Good Governance Awards in Abuja, the information minister said President Tinubu’s administration is determined to ensure that the work of journalists “will continue unhindered and interrupted”.

He said press freedom is very important to uphold. But I keep telling us also, reminding us that your freedom also has to go with enormous responsibility. You cannot allow purveyors of disinformation and fake news to occupy your space.

“I know that we have had some challenges, especially in the last couple of weeks concerning one journalist who has had some problems with the security agencies. That problem has been solved or is being solved. I’m being reminded by someone today that there’s another one. We are also working to ensure that one is also resolved,” Idris added.
