ONDO NUJ GREETS TV JOURNALISTS As we join the rest of the global community to celebrate today’s UN World Television Day, the Ondo state Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, wishes to celebrate dynamically dutiful journalists working with television stations in the state for their steadfastness in the discharge of their duties despite various challenges in the media industry. The Union commends reporters of all private TV stations working in Ondo state for their professional disposition in serving the public and wish all media workers and viewers Happy World Television Day today. In a Press Release issued by the Union and signed by its Chairman and Secretary respectively, Mr James Sowole and Mr Leke Adegbite, it noted the recent restructuring at the Ondo State Radio Vision Corporation, OSRC, and the face-lift being given to facilities at the station. “We therefore call on the Ondo state government to fast track the process of reopening of the television station which the people of the state are eagerly waiting for. “NUJ commends the administration of Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu for not sacking any of our members at OSRC and wishes that the good people of Ondo state will soon be enjoying a reinvigorated OSRC where professionalism and friendly work environment will be encouraged. “The union also celebrates our hardworking colleagues at NTA stations at Akure, Ikare-Akoko and Okitipupa for keeping the flag flying amidst inadequate and decaying facilities. “The Union hereby uses this medium to call on the Federal Government to overhaul equipment at the stations to enable NTA to serve the people better, while an enhanced media salary for all journalists in the country should be worked out without further delay”, it read . In 1996, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed November 21 as World Television Day, “in recognition of the increasing impact television has on decision-making by alerting world attention to conflicts and threats to peace and security and its potential role in sharpening the focus on other major issues.
