He commended Media Trust for its professional handling of issues. “As a government, we would like to work closely with you in order to serve our people well. The North east is at a disadvantage because we always read newspapers a day late, but your company has conquered that problem.

We now read your editions same day as in Abuja and other parts of the country,” Gaidam said.

Gaidam also commended Media Trust for providing scholarships to selected female students at the University of Maiduguri and urged other corporate organisations to do same.

Earlier in his address, Malam Kabiru Yusuf had said that part of the responsibilities of the Media Trust newspapers is to give voice to the people by bringing to the fore, issues that affect the society.
