He described the media as a critical stakeholder in the operations of the company.
“We thank you for your support over the years. You are a key stakeholder to our operations in the state and we want the relationship to continue,” Nwabuzor said.
Responding, Mr. Rex Arum, the NUJ chairman commended the NBL for the gesture.
