The Federal Government has said that Nigerian journalists are facing exceptionally challenging circumstances and deserve improved working conditions.

Alhaji Mohammed Idris, the Minister of Information and National Orientation, shared this information during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.

Idris acknowledged that certain journalists had sacrificed their lives in the line of duty. He pledged to utilize the government’s existing resources to improve their conditions.

He further noted that journalists are a part of the Nigerian state, underscoring the fact that the nation has its own specific approach to categorizing workers based on their salaries and wages.

The Minister stressed the need to avoid singling out journalists when considering issues of wage increases. Instead, it is crucial to take into account the unique nature of their profession and work towards addressing their specific concerns.

He therefore said that it is imperative that any wage increase initiatives are tailored to the particular demands and expectations placed on journalists to ensure a fair and equitable compensation structure for their work.
