The theme of the newscast contest as well as the newscast contest itself is very crucial at this time – particularly in the areas of building trust and professionalism in the media sphere as well as confidence in the abilities of Nigerians unto good and extraordinary works. Thus, from the entries, we are pleased that indeed, positive progress and excellence associated with Nigeria and Nigerians are evident even in 2019 and the awareness of this continues to grow and inspire us all.
We appreciate and congratulate the eight Nigerian contestants for the contest. We appreciate their courage, trust and hope in a greater Nigeria, their intellectual brilliance as well as their confidence in our execution.
