“Our subscribers say if it is not NAN, then it is not authentic.

“That is our cutting edge. That is our unique selling point. We are for truth, we are for objectivity.

“We have one of the most vibrant political desks, populated by experienced political reporters.

“If you look at businesses, NAN economic desk has over the years won laurels and respected by global wire services like Bloomberg,’’ he said.

Ali assured the visitor of the readiness of NAN to support and collaborate with the television station in terms of news content.

Earlier, Hajiya Madina Azaki, said that P&B Television was established to focus on the inter-dependence between politics and business, which she said had often been overlooked.

According to her, politics and business are two sides of a coin but you do not talk about politics without talking about business and vice versa.

Azaki said the visit was more of a familiarisation visit and to also appeal for support and collaboration from NAN because of its extensive coverage.

She commended NAN for its efficiency and promptness in giving the nation an internationally acceptable image. (NAN)
