ActionAid Nigeria has developed guidelines for Nigerian journalists reporting from conflict areas.
“Conflict and Niger Delta Reporting” includes recommendations for fair and balanced reporting and urges journalists not to promote the escalation of violence.
“Within the limits of what is going on in the area, journalists have done well. But we feel that they have enormous responsibility…and if not well managed, could lead to the degeneration of what is going on in the Niger Delta”, says Gbenro Olajuyigbe, advisor to ActionAid on human security in conflict and emergencies.
