The management of CrossRiverWatch has disclosed that the media organization is set to open its new office in Calabar next week.

In a telephone chat with this reporter from his Lagos base, Editor-In-Chief of CrossRiverWatch, Agba Jalingo said the opening of the new office will enable the organization to leverage on the impact they have made and consolidate operations.

He also disclosed that,, will migrate in three weeks from WordPress to an indigenous platform which has been developed in Calabar the state capital.

“We had been operating from IBB way there in Calabar and necessity demanded that we get a bigger space and that is what has just happened. It is also noteworthy that the office is not the only thing that is the new development, we are also migrating from WordPress and in three weeks time, we are unveiling a new look on a new, indigenous, Cross River State built platform.

“The exciting thing about the new platform is that, it will be more interactive, it can talk to you and you can talk back, you will report yourself on, you will place adverts on by yourself, from your location from your tablets, we will make more use of videos and live podcasts, we will host our online radio and tv etc. and all these and a lot more were all developed and patented by an indigenous company there in Calabar.

“The new office at N0. 2 Ndidem Usang Iso road, popularly known as Marian Road, by Rabana roundabout, will be opened from next week for Cross Riverians to begin to interact with us more robustly. More importantly it will be a meeting point and breeding ground for as many young people who want to develop a career in online journalism in Cross River State.

“Yes, what we are doing is a business, but before then, it is first a social responsibility to liberalize information in our State and give the people greater voice in the development and decision making process. That is our overriding goal and with everything now set for the next governor of the state to emerge from northern Cross River state, we are optimistic that that governor will digitalize the northern part of the state, which is still lagging behind, and internet penetration will improve significantly in that part of the state.

“That is the vehicle we need to drive our people into the information age and we are poised for the task ahead. So opening of the office is just a step in that direction. All the team members are bubbling with energy and every one of us is in good shape to go and these developments make it even more exciting for all of us.” He concluded.
