The Bayelsa state Governor, Senator Douye Diri has said that the impact of the volume of work done in the past six years by GbaramatuVoice today, goes beyond the shores of this country.
Governor Diri made this known in Lagos during the celebration of the Newspaper’s 6th Anniversary lecture held on Tuesday August 10, 2021, at Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Speaking through Mr. Daniel Alabrah, Chief Press Secretary, who dutifully represented him at the event, Governor Diri said; “I want to commend the Newspaper and its management for what they have done and achieved in just six years. Their impact is today felt beyond the shores of this country. It is commendable.
To copiously quote, he said in parts; “Let me thank the organizers of this event, six years is quite young by every standard but looking at the impact of the GbaramatuVoice at six, it is obvious that your impact is not by any standard small at all, and I think you deserve a round over plus. What you have achieved in this short period is commendable.
To buttress his claim, he narrated how somebody asked me a question as to whether GbaramatuVoice is now a national newspaper and he could not provide an answer to the question despite being a media personality.
“I have worked in national media organizations but today it is difficult to rate GbaramatuVoice because of the global impact it has created. How do we classify GbaramatuVoice? Is it a community newspaper, regional or national paper? Today, because of the far reaching effect of your efforts and impacts which goes beyond the shores of this country in just six years, it has become a difficult task to classify you.
Speaking further, the Governor praised the GbaramatuVoice management for the choice of the central theme tagged; Dwindling state of crude demand in the global market: The way forward?
“I want to thank the organizers of this event and I want to wish GbaramatuVoice management well as they make very good progress. He concluded.
