On reporting conflict sensitive issues, the veteran Journalist urged editors to be guided by the ethics of the profession and consider national interest before any other consideration.

During the experience sharing session of the training, participants bear their minds on the need to be thorough on issues, especially those that are sensitive to national security, ethnicity and religion, before dishing out to the public.

The training was attended by Editors from broadcast, print and online media from across the country.
