The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Kaduna State, Muhammad Shehu Molash, on Thursday, embarked on a tour of media stations in Kaduna with a view to strengthening the working relationship between the state government and the media organization.

In a statement he personally signed on Thursday, he urged the media houses to also project a positive image of Kaduna State.

According to him, the media stations he visited included Kaduna State Media Corporation (KSMC), Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) Kaduna, Freedom Radio, and Liberty Radio/TV.

He said the tour was a demonstration of Governor Uba Sani’s commitment to fostering a healthy relationship with the media and ensuring transparent communication with the public.

During his visit to the media organizations, Mr. Shehu pledged to work towards mending any possible gap that exists in the relationship between the state government and media practitioners.

He emphasized the importance of collaboration in promoting accurate reportage and projection of a positive image of Kaduna State, adding that Gov Uba Sani, being one of those who fought for the enthronement of democracy in Nigeria, had always been a friend of the media.

He cited instances where Senator Sani assisted so many media practitioners in Kaduna State long before becoming a Senator, adding that both the media and government have a common goal, which is to serve the people of Kaduna State, and that they can achieve the goal more effectively by working together.

He therefore urged journalists to be fair and balanced in their reportage, while also assuring them that their concerns would be addressed by his office.

In their respective responses, the heads of the media organizations visited expressed appreciation for Mr. Shehu’s initiative and promised to partner with the state government towards achieving its objectives of taking Kaduna State to an enviable height.

They acknowledged the critical role that a strong working relationship between the government and media plays in fostering transparency, accountability, and development of a state.
