PDP Salutes Guardian Newspapers @35

<![CDATA[The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) congratulates the management and staff of the Guardian Newspapers as it marks its 35 years anniversary, as one of the major flagships of journalism in Nigeria.

The PDP particularly commends the Guardian Newspapers for upholding its motto, “conscience nurtured by truth”, a watchword, which has remained eminently manifest in its strong editorial policy and the credibility of reportage in all its titles.

Over the years, the Guardian newspaper, as one of the pioneer media houses in Nigeria has remained committed to developmental and investigative journalism, positive opinion moulding and the entrenchment of democracy and good governance in our country.

The PDP recalls the pivotal roles played by the Guardian and other media houses, during the military era, leading to the return of democracy and for which it was shut down for 18 months and its editors jailed under obnoxious military decree 4 of 1984.

Finally, while we rejoice with the Guardian as it attains this milestone, the PDP also commends all spheres of the Nigerian media, as the fourth estate of the realm, for their resilience and commitment towards national unity, development, stability and protection of democratic tenets, particularly at this trying time.
