In his goodwill message, Mr Clement Ige, the publisher, Broadcasters Int’l, noted that the establishment of the Organisation helped the broadcast industry in getting the essential and required professional lift.

“With the establishment of the broadcasting Organizations of Nigeria in the late eighties, the broadcast industry got the required and essential professional lift. The beautiful thing is that both BON and the broadcast industry were further lifted into new orientations by leaders of the organization, particularly the chairmen and executive secretaries.

Each leadership was refreshing, and this is important and instructive. The outgoing chairman, Mr. John Ugbe was solid, and the new chairman is bringing high expectations of years of professionalism.

We at Broadcasters International Magazine, Dr. Yemi Farounbi, the chairman, Clement Ige, the publisher and other eminent members of our Board, join others to welcome the new chairman of BON on board. We look forward to holding the first Stakeholders Summit on the Creative Industry with him.” He said.
