The state Commissioner for Information, Mr. Patrick Ukah, has said that the state government is ready to partner with the private sector in other for Deltans to benefit more in the state.
The Information Commissioner stated this in Ughelli, Ughelli North Local Government Area, on Wednesday, November 23, 2016, during his visit to the newly established Quest 93.1 FM and Quest Television stations.
Mr. Ukah commended the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the stations, Chief Greg Edor, for bringing such investment to the state, adding that the state government would give all the needed support to the stations to enable it compete with others in the region.
He urged Deltans, especially the youths, to take good advantage of the Quest Radio and TV studio to equip themselves in the music and entertainment industry.
The Information Commissioner assured that his ministry will give government programmes and activities to the station to enable it inform the public of the activities of government any time.
In his response, Chief Edor thanked the Information Commissioner for the visit, noting that he find it so disheartening when Deltans invite private stations from other regions to cover ceremonies in the state and beam such programmes live when the state has what it takes to have an international standard broadcasting equipment and human resources.
He noted that his desire is to get Deltans, especially the youths, out of the streets to enable them become useful in the society.
Chief Edor called for encouragement from the government to enable the station achieve its desired goal.
