“The state government has in the past trained Public Relations Officers (PROs), Directors  and Permanent Secretaries of ministries, as well as  journalists for effective communication of the government’s policies.

“I assure you that Kaduna Government will redouble its efforts to ensure that good working relationship is sustained between the State and the NUJ,” the media aide said.
