Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has warned that 2015 politicking is gradually sidetracking the process of governance in the country and challenged the media to turn down the volume.

Speaking at an international experience sharing conference on media and elections in Abuja yesterday, Ekweremadu said it was high time the media reduce the fever a bit so as not to encourage interference of politicking with governance.

Speaker,House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal also challenged the media to always stand by the constitution in its reportage and charged journalists not to give vent to the illegal acts of politicians.

In his keynote speech at the conference, former director-general of the Nigerian Television Authority, NTA Dr. Tony Iredia, said the Nigerian media was reflective of the society and decried what he described as the seeming reluctance of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to adopt technology as a way of checking malpractices in the voting process.
