AN eight -Man Committee has been constituted to articulate a work plan for the Information Unit of the department in the Ministry of information and Public Enlightenment for 2020 to 2021.
The committee, which was announced by the Director of Information Department, Tony Nweke, will have a two-week deadline to come up with their recommendation and determine the long, medium and short term plans for the department.
This has become necessary to work in line with the vision and mission of the present government and others thereafter.
According to Mr Nweke, “I want the unit more than ever before to be relevant by demonstrating commitment toward its mandate in exploring opportunities at inundating ndi Anambra with the right information, such that fake and unverifiable news will become irrelevant.
“I have carefully chosen members to reflect the relevant sectors – senior members of the editorial board, representatives from Ministries, Departments and Agencies as well as representatives from local government sectors.”
The committee will be headed by Mr Uzoma Ekweaga, a top officer in the ministry, to be assisted by Mrs Chinyere Ogbuagu as Vice-Chairman.
Mrs Grace Onwukwe would function as secretary and other members are Mrs Regina Igwebuike, Mrs Judith Anigbogu, Rev. Uzo Ugwunze, Mr David Okpala and Mr Sunday Okoli.
Mr Nweke said the committee would commence work immediately after its inauguration during an Editorial Board Meeting of Jan. 13 where the terms of reference for the assignment would be officially unveiled
