Warri, the commercial nerve centre of Delta State is safe and good for business, contrary to the jaundiced notion held by uninformed individuals.
The DESOPADEC's helmsman made the assertion recently when a delegation of the ‘Delta Broadcasting Service (DBS) Song of the Year’ Committee led by its Chairperson, Mrs. Oborerhiri Isonguyo paid a thank you visit to the Commission at its corporate head office in Warri.
According to Bashorun Ogieh, "We want to tell the world that Warri is safe and good for business through the successful hosting of the song of the year show which was held in the city recently.
"Through this kind of programmes, we can encourage Warri economy to blossom again as we tell the true story of Warri to promote what we really stand for – infectious warmth and hospitality, sheer resilience, economic grit and vibrant workforce," he said.
Bashorun Ogieh, who congratulated Mr. Ese Amadasun for winning the maiden edition of the talent hunt show which was sponsored by DESOPADEC, said he was interested in programmes aimed at identifying, developing, honing and encouraging talents discovered in the show.
"A post-event programme that would market winners of the show would be welcome. If the event ends here, it is not good enough. Winners should be able to make positive impact on society in becoming big stars in the future," Bashorun Ogieh stated.
The Uzere High Chief promised to partner with DBS in future collaboration but noted that the recession occasioned by the COVID-19 should be short-lived so that the commission will be able to meet up with their request of further assistance.
The head of the delegation and Chairman of the DBS Song of Year committee, Mrs Isonguyo lauded the support of DESOPADEC for the maiden edition and sought for further assistance in the upcoming second edition next year.
In the delegation were Mr Chukwuji Nwajei, Manager, Programmes; Mr John Glover, Principal Reporter; Mr Edah Omonigho and Mr Ese Amadasun, winner of the “DBS Song of the Year” 2020.
