A DStv team has begun a facility tour of Ogun State Television (OGTV) to partner the Ogun state Government, towards upgrading facilities of the state-owned Television.
Commissioner for Information and Strategy Adedayo Adeneye, who received the team, led by the Project Manager (Nigeria), Mr. Ekom Esang, said the step became imperative as the state television could not afford to be left behind in the digitization world.
He explained that facilities in OGTV needed to be upgraded, in light of the station going on DStv decoder channels.
“Ogun State occupies a very strategic position in Nigeria, due to contributions of the state icons and indigenes in the development of the country-our media must be repositioned to consolidate on the Rebuilding Mission, because OGTV remains one of the TV stations to reckon with. It is also noteworthy that the image of the messenger is as important as the message,’’ he said.
The commissioner assured that before the state’s 40th Anniversary on February 3, the station would have received a boost. Just last week calisthenics troupe has begun rehearsals at the DIPO Dina International Stadium Ijebu Ode towards to main event.
Esang praised the government for working towards upgrading and improving the facilities of the station.
Just yesterday the Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Mr Bimbo Ashiru expressed interest towards making Nigeria an export dependent nation (in the face of dwindling fortunes of oil in the international market) in a conference tagged ‘one state-one product’ held at the conference hall of the State Ministry of Commerce and Industry in Abeokuta, Ogun State. According to the Commissioner, the state is partnering the Nigerian Export Promotions Council, targeting an average export of one million tonnes of cassava annually, expected to provide about,100,000 direct and indirect jobs.
Addressing the meeting, the Lagos Zonal Controller of the Nigerian Export Promotion Council, George Onyekpo, challenged the government at all levels to provide the much needed political will to improve foreign direct earnings for the country.
