SUPPORT “REBUILD IMO PROJECT” — INFORMATION COMMISSIONER BEGS JOURNALISTS
Media professionals in Imo State have been urged to be objective in their reportage and always crosscheck their facts before going to the press.
The Commissioner for Information and Orientation in the State, Chief Felix Ebiliekwe, gave the charge while briefing journalists in Owerri.
He called on the people of the state to be patient with the Governor Emeka Ihedioha-led administration as painstaking efforts were being made to put smiles on the faces of the people.
Chief Ebiliekwe explained that the State Government had restored full payment of workers’ salaries starting from this month of August, noting that the welfare of the people would remain the priority of the present administration.
The Commissioner maintained that Governor Ihedioha had assembled technocrats to help drive his vision and called on the people to continue to demonstrate their support in righting the wrongs of the last administration.
Chief Ebiliekwe announced that his ministry had instituted an annual award for journalists with outstanding performance, especially as it concerns the Rebuild Imo Project, as a way to encourage hard work and professionalism.
He promised to run an open door policy and called on journalists to support the government to deliver on its mandate.
