Aregbesola revealed this when he hosted a delegation of the Nigeria Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), led by its President, Mallam Muktar Zubair in his office in Abuja, today.

He stressed that the role of Journalists in information dissemination and promoting positive narratives on government's efforts at a time the country was faced with security challenges could not be overemphasised.
"The role of Journalists in the nation's development through rapid promotion and development of perception, as well as management of communication, cannot be overemphasized," Aregbesola added.
He added that acquisition of Nigerian passport was being done through online means without third party involvement to ensure timely and seamless process, he therefore warned against going through unauthorised means in an attempt to obtain the passport.

"Don't keep any secret information about security to yourself, report to the nearby security agencies, " he charged.
