Anambra State Governor Prof. Charles Soludo has described partnership with media practitioners as critical to his government.
He said collaboration with the media remained essential to achieving the kind of creative disruption he was bringing to the state.
Soludo spoke at the weekend, during the maiden Media Executive Summit organised by the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), themed ‘Objective Reporting and Unionism in a Digital Era’.
The governor, represented by Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Sir Paul Nwosu, noted that the summit’s theme was not only relevant, but anchored on what the present administration intended in running a prosperous and smart mega-state.
NUJ National President Chris Isiguzo hailed the initiative, which he described as unique being the first of its kind across the 36 states.
He said such summit be organised for front liners, managers, union leaders, among others.
“What defines journalists is their ability to report objectively. Therefore, you must ensure you eschew every element of bias in your reportage,” he stressed.
Governor Soludo has also mourned the death of Joe Anatune. He described the late Anatune as one of the foremost apostles of the Soludo project with uncommon strength and courage to deliver on any given assignment.
The governor noted that Joe’s personal sacrifices during his electioneering campaign were not only exceptional, but highly commendable.
“He spearheaded the Soludo Promoters Forum (SPF) and, for two years, used the platform to engage the professionals in mainstream politics.
“The government and people of Anambra State will miss Joe Anatune,” he said.
The late Anatune died on April 30, few days after his 62nd birthday. He was appointed MD/CEO of Anambra State Signage and Advertising Agency on April 19.
