The Commissioner for Information, Mr Charles Aniagwu has tasked staff of the Delta Broadcasting Service (DBS), Asaba to re-double their efforts to make the station compete favourably with other players in the industry with a view to winning back the teeming audience especially in Delta State.
Mr Aniagwu stated this during a meeting with the staff of the station on the way forward in making the station capable of serving the purpose for which it was established; a true station for the people of Delta State.
Speaking during the meeting, the Commissioner noted that over the years the state broadcasting outfit had gradually lost its viewership due to many factors which included lack of commitment on the part of staff, lack of quality programs, lack of initiative, content among others.
Mr. Aniagwu emphasized the need for staff to as much as they could engage in self-training through the monitoring of their competitors activities so as to add value to their services which will in turn will increase patronage of the station.
The meeting ended with staff of the station coming to a consensus with the commissioner, pledging to work with him to build a formidable team to drive the ‘Stronger Delta’ vision of the Gov. Okowa led administration.
Present were the functioning Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Mr Paul Osahor, some directors from the ministry and staff of DBS, Asaba led by the General Manager, Lady Evelyn Binitie.
