The Director General of the Debt Management Office, Dr. Abraham Nwankwo, has said the online news platform is a critical component of the development of the country.
He said over 55 per cent of what happens to a nation’s economy is about perception.
He said since that perception is largely created by the media, there is the need for online publishers to assist in doing global marketing for the country and the economy.
The Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission, Barrister Ekpo Nta, said the formation of GOCOP was coming at a right time.
Represented by Hon. Isa Ozi-Salami, Nta said online journalists have “a great role to play in the tackling of corruption”.
Nwankwo said online publishers can be valuable whistle blowers for the Commission.
He however cautioned against reporting falsehood.
