Govt. to revive state-owned Triumph Newspapers

Garba said that the issue was necessary due to the importance of the newspaper company to the entire people of the state.

 

The Kano State Government says it is doing everything possible to ensure that its newspaper company, Triumph, is revived to embark on its normal publications.

The state Commissioner for Information, Comrade Muhammed Garba announced this when he received the state assembly’s committee on information who came on a familiarisation visit to his office.

According to the Garba, the issue of reviving the state-owned newspaper is a priority of the state governor, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje.

He said that the priority placed on the issue led the governor to set up a special committee with the responsibility of finding a lasting solution to challenges facing the company.

“Triumph was not only used for publication, but also served as a training ground for the students of Mass Communication in the state," he said.

Garba said the state government would do everything possible to provide the company with modern facilities to compete with others in Nigeria and even abroad.

In his speech, the Chairman of the House Committee on Information and member representing Doguwa constituency, Alhaji Ibrahim Riruwe, said the visit was aimed at finding ways of moving the ministry forward.

Riruwe said the visit was also to know the major challenges facing the ministry and its agencies in order to look forward to finding a lasting solution for the challenges.

According to him, the assembly will give all the necessary support in ensuring that all the state-owned media organisations are provided with the modern facilities, to ensure smooth dissemination of information.
