… as Orji tasks PR practitioners on partnership

By Anayo Okoli

Umuahia—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,  the 2009 pre-council conference Meeting/AGM of Imo /Abia chapters of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR).

According to Orji, the country’s image needs  a total overhaul, and noted that it was perhaps for that reason that President Umaru Yar’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.
