The MD, National Light Newspapers And Printing Corporation, Sir Chuka Nnabuife has unveiled his mission to make the corporation the number one print media house in the country.
Sir Nnabuife disclosed this while speaking at the opening ceremony of a 3-day productivity and orientation workshop organized for the staff of the institution, which took place at the National Light Event Hall. He noted that the National Light, which is the longest-thriving State-owned Newspaper in the entire country, has remained somewhat latent over the years, until the recent time, with the incoming of the corporation’s current administration under Chief Dr. Willie Obiano, who brought him on board.
He however highlighted some of the feats recently achieved in the corporation, which include the regular publication of the newspaper on weekly basis, introduction of two more newspapers — Ka Ọ Dị Taa Igbo Newspaper — which is the only Igbo Newspaper in the whole country, and which has won numerous recognitions and awards in just less than three years of its operation — and the Sportslight Xtra; as well as rebranding and digitizing of the organization and its operations, among others. These, he noted, has repositioned the organisation in the frontline and improved its status in the rank of media rating.
While crediting these to Gov. Obiano’s giant stride and the industriousness of staff, Sir Nnabuife also said he was not yet satisfied with the feats and the status of the organisation, which he said was the prime reason and driving force behind the workshop. He maintained that the orientation and productivity workshop will feature interactive lectures on workplace relationship, workers’ life and productivity among others, which are all geared towards consolidating on the feats so far achieved and making the institution the number one print media outlet in the country.
