Media aides to the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, have charged both television and radio presenters in the state to be objective in their broadcast.

In a familiarisation visit to the newly birthed Inspiration 105.9 FM, on Friday, the media aides said that the proper confidence of the listener is gained when programmes are produced for the general interest and well-being of the society.

The team included Essien Ndueso and Uwemedimo Umanah both Special Assistant to the Governor on Media; Mrs Meflyn Anwana, Special Assistant to the Governor on New Media and Joseph Okon, Special Assistant to the Governor on Grassroots Reorientation.

Mr. Essien Ndueso said that the aim of the visit was to cement a relationship and partnership with the electronic media in line with Governor Emmanuel’s posture to encourage those who bring in investment, opportunities, and projects that have to do with the development of the state.

He advised that presenters in the electronic medium would key into the developmental agenda of Governor Emmanuel and support him in his bid to move Akwa Ibom State to the next level.

According to him, “The Governor is development-minded. He loves development and that is his wish for Akwa Ibom people, and that is what the people saw in him before they went out en-mass to vote for him on April 11, 2015.

“Since May 29, 2015 when Mr. Udom Emmanuel was sworn-in as Governor, he has not relented despite the decline in the economic fortunes of the country, he has made sure that he remains upbeat and undaunted in delivering superior performance and industrialising the state, which has made Akwa Ibom State one of the fastest growing economies in the country, ”he said.

Mr. Uwemedimoh Umanah, on his part, urged presenters to focus on the viable and salient aspects of development that has brought about positive turn-around in the society, saying that the government of Governor Udom Emmanuel means well for the people.

“This is the only state in Nigeria that has taken development seriously and comprehensively. By the time you focus on objectivity, you will discover that your station stands the test of time.

“I’m not saying the station should be unnecessarily pro-government, but some level of objectivity and key into creating structural agenda and key into the vision of the government which is developmental in nature.”

Also speaking, Mrs. Meflyn Anwana, urged Inspiration FM to pay more attention on the youths and to incorporate young people with young might who are very talented.
