The Editor-in-Chief of Premium Times, Musikilu Mojeed, on Monday said the activities of honest Nigerians go largely unnoticed and unrewarded due to the corrupt acts of others which the media prefer to publicise more.

He said this on Monday in Abuja during a panel discussion at the Integrity Icon Summit and Awards, organised by Accountabilitylab in partnership with Luminate, Ford Foundation and MacArthur Foundation.

The event tagged “Integrity Icon Summit and Awards” was organised to celebrate government officials who have showcased credible character, accountability and integrity in the discharge of their responsibilities.

“Let’s be frank, when you look through the media, do a content analysis, you will find that the media tries to highlight the good guys as much as possible,” the editor said. “But the problem we’re never aware of is that they (good guys) are too few. The bad guys usually drown them out.”

Also, he urged the organisers of the event to partner with media houses in order to amplify the good work they and other good people are doing.
