In introducing the panel, Prince Charles Dickson from Nigeria, sets up the basic issue the IARJ members will be discussing.

Of course. … We also are looking at how journalists play roles as gate keepers and agenda setters.

This is a very timely discussion, he adds, because there is currently a debate ongoing as to whether our country is a secular state or a religious state. Our constitution … failed to make that very clear.
