Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Kehinde Bamigbetan today in Lagos pledged the State Government’s support and cooperation for Community Media in recognition of their role in history.
He said that Community Media is even more relevant now that some of them have gone online thus making their information global and advised the operators to develop their entrepreneurial skills, which he said, if well developed could make them print at least 500,000 copies per day.
Speaking further, the Commissioner urged the operators to get acquainted with the laudable projects of the State Government and communicate this effectively, stressing that the policy thrust and the vision must be well understood by the residents for a better appreciation of government projects and programmes.
On the issue of refuse on some streets of Lagos, the Commissioner stated that the government has put in place a clear vision to improve waste management, emphasizing that Lagosians will begin to enjoy the well-packaged waste management measures being rolled out by the State very soon.
Earlier, the publishers took turns to applaud Mr. Bamigbetan’s appointment as the Commissioner for Information & Strategy and commended him for bringing Community media to limelight under the current administration.
Alhaji Monsur Olowosago, Publisher of Oriwu Sun, stated that the appointment is a right step in the right direction in view of the vast journalistic experience of Mr. Bamigbetan and his ability to mobilise the people of the grassroots.
Olowosago commended him for his role in standardizing the operations of Community media in the State and for creating a platform of engagement for the operators while also assuring the Commissioner of their support and cooperation.
