Cross River State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mrs. RoseMary Archibong has told media establishments in the State that the Ayade-led administration is ladened with people-oriented programmes, projects and achievements that should be disseminated to the public.
Mrs. Archibong made this assertion when she received the Management of Correct FM on a courtesy call recently in the Conference Room of her Ministry in Calabar.
The Information and Orientation boss quipped that with the giant industrialization strides and digital agricultural revolution programmes of the Ayade-led government, which have made the State a reference point and beacon of industrialization in the comity of Nigerian states; it is pertinent that the media play its role of getting the masses abreast with the goings on in the society.
The Commissioner, who expressed delight at the recent emergence of more media outfits in the State, maintained that such development stems from the premise that there is a lot the government of the State is doing and other happenings that are to be disseminated.
“There is so much people must know. Governance and government is not limited to a certain faction of society. The governed must know what the government is doing, which is why the emergence of all these media platforms is kudos to Cross Rover State and Nigeria at large,” the Commissioner remarked.
She also urged informed that now that the masses are better informed, it stands them a good stead to scrutinize and keep the government in check.
In his earlier remarks, the Station Manager, Correct 93.1 FM, Mr. Roy Edache said his outfit is poised to adding its quota to broadcasting and change the paradigm with a deliberate move to bringing ‘Pidgin English’ to Calabar, adding that the only way to carry Nigerians along was to speak the language they understand, which is ‘pidgin English.’
Mr. Edache assured that Correct 93.1 FM will maintain the right content, report objectively and ensure that Cross Riverians are educated, informed and entertained, while seeking synergy with the Ministry of Information and Orientation as a major source point for the enhancement of his station’s performances.
