He asked members of the union and general online practitioners to use their medium to propagate those ideals that will unite Nigerians and safeguard the integrity of the country.

According to him, it has come to a point where Online Journalism cannot be ignored, your roles as information managers is not in doubt but at the same time, you’ve got to up your games and show Nigerians that you all not only project that which is good but also make sure you adhere to existing laws that guarantees the fundamental rights of all Nigerians.

It is high time for online practitioners to become agents of change and provide the much needed alternatives in information management Ayorinde said.
