“Late Steve Jobs said, the most powerful person in the world are story tellers”.
“Initially I didn’t know the meaning but now I do.Those who control what media establishments say, are the powerful people.
“For a gathering of story tellers- Jouranalists to come and want to partner with us, you are doing a great service .
“The way the world is today, the internet has become both a blessing and a curse.thus the information tool, if not well used,can wreak havoc”.
The Monarch therefore encouraged media practitioners to stand by the truth at all times, adding that God has a way of rewarding those who do truthfull reportage.
