In a press statement by Alayande Stephen, the head of media, the Minister had a chit-chat with the Electronic Media Content Owners of Nigeria leadership to fashion a way forward on the need for collaboration with relevant players in the Media Space especially for the forth coming PROJECT NIGERIA.
In the words of Mohammed, "the Federal Government is poised to bring the desire change into the lives of our people, hence, the change mantra " it begins with me", all hands including that of your members must be on deck to ensure that we bring about re-orientation of the people. Not everybody that is rich is a role model, the average Nigeria youth have no respect for hard work again."
The Minister stressed the national re-orientation campaign to change the mentality of the people in the global community about the perception of Nigeria, while buttressing the importance of WAR AGAINST CORRUPTION and the need for all hands to be on deck against the insurgence of Boko Haram and the need for Nigerians to be more conscious.
In her response, the President of EMCOAN, Debbie Odutayo expressed appreciation to the Minister for inviting the body as a stakeholder to be part of the team to proffer solution to the challenges affecting the Broadcast Industry.
She said "as stakeholders in the Industry, we have the historical responsibility to fulfill in ensuring that we play our role in educating, entertaining and engaging the society positively via our different content/programmes."
Odutayo also announced to the Minister that a two man committee has been put in place to come up with a position paper on behalf of EMCOAN to be submitted to the Minister which will see members of EMCOAN join in the re-orientation effort of the Government to stamp out corruption, encourage patriotism towards the nation, cultural and societal value driven initiatives.
