The Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Victor Ochei has assured of the state House of Assembly’s commitment to improve the lots of the Delta Printing and Publishing Company Limited (Publishers of The POINTER Newspapers).
Rt. Hon. Ochei gave the assurance when The POINTER Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in a delegation led by its Chairman, Comrade Fidelis Egugbo paid him a courtesy visit in his office.
Ochei, who noted that The POINTER is not growing at the pace expected of it, acknowledged some of the factors responsible for its stunted growth to include lack of motivation for its staff, circulation outreach, among others stating that the state government is interested in the organization moving to its permanent site at DBS Road, Asaba.
“I remain a friend of The POINTER and whatever it will take to see the success of The POINTER, I will not hesitate,” he assured.
Chairman of The POINTER NUJ, Comrade Fidelis Egugbo had earlier commended the Speaker on his role during the Chapel’s Press Week/Fund raising and pledged the Chapel’s commitment to partnering with him and the House of Assembly.
