Umuahiaâ€”GOVER NOR Theodore Orji of Abia State, has challenged public relations practitioners in the country to partner with his administration in projecting a positive image for the state and nation at large.
Gov Orji spoke yesterday, in Umuahia when he declared open,Â the 2009 pre-council conference Meeting/AGM of Imo /Abia chapters of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR).
According to Orji, the countryâ€™s image needsÂ a total overhaul, and noted that it was perhaps for that reason that President Umaru Yarâ€™Adua embarked on the re-branding campaign.
The Governor commended the Minister of Information, Professor Dora Akunyili for championing the re-branding campaign of the Federal Government, even as he said that Abia State has since cued into the project and has been pursuing it vigorously through diverse projects.
