“I have very high hopes for you and your establishment, I know that your reporting will become more precise, more enlighten and obviously very fair and balanced.”
That is a statement made by the Cross River State Signage and Advertisement Agency (CRISSAA) Director General, Mr. Stanley Nsemo-Livingstone Wednesday when he paid a courtesy visit to the CrossRiverWatch office.
According to him “More importantly is a Cross Riverian, a young person in this business space who believes a lot in online segment of the market.”
Adding that “It’s a good place to collate and amalgamate all the information coming to the State and Nation where young people can come and gather that kind of experience that is needed for social media reporting and engagement.”
Furthermore he maintained that, “It is fantastic if you’ve done this without Government or from any other sources, I wonder what you will do when you will get that kind of support you need, this is something that definitely needs to be encouraged by the Government and by private investors as well.”
On his part while receiving the CRISSAA Director General, CrossRiverWatch Managing Editor, Mr. Archibong Jeremiah thanked Mr. Nsemo-Livingstone for the visit saying “It’s worthwhile”.
According to Mr. Jeremiah “CrossRiverWatch was born out of the need to place Cross River State on the world map by telling her stories like no other.”
He assured that, “We will stop at nothing in making sure that our reports are balanced and for the overall interest of the State. We will not just tell the Cross River narrative but also be part of the solution to some of the problems our state is grappling with”.
