Ondo APC Seeks Collaboration of the Media
The Ondo State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Ade Adetimehin has declared that impacts of any government cannot be felt by the masses without the full support of the media and journalists.
Adetimehin stated this at the Press Centre, Alagbaka- Akure during a Special Get-Together to celebrate the emergence of new executives of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Ondo State Council led by Adetona Aderoboye.
Mr Adetimehin described the media as a critical segment of the society that set agenda on how the citizenry would view or assess political leaders and their administrations, hence the need for any leader that wished to succeed to positively relate with media professionals.
The APC called for a robust working relationship and harmonious partnership between NUJ members, state government and the ruling APC for a better service delivery to the public.
In a remark, the Acting Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Tayo Ogunleye pledged the support of labour leaders to the new NUJ leadership to succeed.
The Get-Together was attended by the State Commissioner for Agriculture, Mr Gboyega Adefarati, General Managers of Radio Nigeria Positive 102.5 FM, Mr Tunde Abiodun and that of NTA, Mr Segun Ojelade; the State JNC Chairman, Abel Oloniyo and a labour leader, Sunday Adeleye.
