Renowned journalist and NBC regulator, Alhaji Nurudeen Imam last Saturday in Ilorin attended a media parley hosted with members of the Association of Kwara Online Media Practitioners, ASKOMP, which held at NasTV Africa studio in Ilorin.
Alhaji Imam, who is also a former KwaraTV General Manager and spokesman to four military/civilian governors as well as NBC Regulator spoke on the theme: ”Human Capital Development as a veritable tool to youth restiveness and security in Nigeria.”
Alhaji Nurudeen Imam hailed the umbrella body of professional Online Media practitioners in Kwara state and NasTV Africa CEO for the initiative aimed at promoting peace, public safety and drive development through the dissemination of factual and credible information.
He charged ASKOMP members to focus on critical issues such as climate change, environment, national unity and other societal challenges.
The host of the parley, Mr. Nasir Abdulquadri in his remarks urged the youth to shun the secession agitation, noting that “It was time to preach the message of one Nigeria, unity and peaceful coexistence. Secession will not automatically end all the challenges facing this country.”
Abdulquadri said their organization was established to create a mentorship platform for African youth through building leaders, supporting entrepreneurs, developing human capital and showcasing African talents.
