ANAMBRA State Government has inaugurated a state-of-the-art Digital Radio and Television studios of the Anambra Broadcasting Service.
The studio complex was conceived and executed by the Obiano administration in compliance with the latest technological trends in modern broadcasting.
Inaugurating the facility, Governor Willie Obiano recalled his ugly experience in the old studios of the outfit during his electioneering campaign in 2013 which prompted his promise to deliver ultramodern studio facility to the establishment.
The governor, who noted that his administration spent not less than N1.8 billion on the project, said because of his belief in quality, he had ensured all equipment in the studio was purchased brand new.
The Commissioner for Information and Communication Strategy, Tony Nnachetta pointed out that the Governor in his human nature, had carefully addressed the long-aged challenges of the Anambra Broadcasting Service, ranging from poor infrastructure to workers welfare.
He said that in the next phase, government would look into the state -owned Newspaper outfit (National Light) and the Printing Press.
The Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Anambra Broadcasting Service, Nn’emeka Maduegbuna said that with the facility, the establishment was poised to becoming the first station in the Southeast to attain digital status.
The Managing Director of the contracting firm, that handled the project, Hassan Fawaz while noting that what they delivered was state-of-the-art facility, thanked government for efforts that made the project a reality.
Victor Umeh, the chairman of the Governor’s re-election Campaign Committee, said that testimonies abound everywhere on legacy projects of the Obiano administration.
In a vote of thanks, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the ABS, Mr Uche Nworah, thanked Gov. Obiano for his commitment in turning around the fortunes of the ABS.
He assured that he would drive the station’s workforce toward achieving results for the government, and its people.
