Mr. Ukah disclosed this on when the management of the Nigeria Television Authority, NTA, Channel eleven, Asaba, led by the acting General Manager, Ms. Ann Ekpo, paid him a courtesy visit in Asaba.
The Information Commissioner said the present administration was doing a lot in making life meaningful for all Deltans, and called for continued cooperation from the management of NTA, Asaba, in bringing the programmes to the knowledge of Deltans.
He said NTA Asaba had exhibited a high level of professionalism in relating with the state government despite the change of government at the federal level, and stated that the present administration would continue to fulfill its obligations to the station.
Mr. Ukah explained that the state owned broadcast outfits were already on the Star Times platforms which had given them an edge over their counterparts in other states of the country.
