I am happy we are doing that” he said
Shola Omole who said a lot more needs to be done, to properly situate the NTA spoke on the next phase of revolution
in the organization; his words, “We’ve got to find ways to train our people, news reporters, programMe producers, engineers, so that they get conversant with 21st century television in every respect.Then staff morale, our people have got to be happy to be able to deliver.
Everybody is excited with this new studio that we have I expect that enthusiasm to translate to greater production”.
