Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo says said on Monday that his administration would upgrade facilities in state-owned media houses, to enable them to meet with the technical challenges of the digital era.

The governor gave the assurance when he paid an unscheduled visit to the corporate headquarters of the Edo Broadcasting Service (EBS) and the Nigerian Observer, publishers of the Observer titles in Benin.

Obaseki, who was taken around the EBS by the Assistant General Manager (AGM) Engineering, Mrs Ameze Osagie, said the state-owned media stations needed to be upgraded, to enable them to compete favourably with similar outfits across the country.

He said the portion of the EBS land that had been encroached upon by land speculators would be recovered, to allow for the installation of modern facilities.

Speaking to journalists at the Nigerian Observer, after a facility tour, the governor assured that media experts would be consulted on how best to reposition the newspaper outfit.
