He made the commendation during a courtesy visit to the governor at the governor’s lodge in Amawbia in company of the Managing Director and CEO of the Anambra Broadcasting Service, Mr Uche Nworah.

Edochie who was once a broadcaster of repute of the station and known for his programme called “Music from the masters” before his transition to the world of make believe hailed the governor for investing in digital broadcast equipments in the state broadcasting organisation as well as introducing other measures aimed at improving the picture clarity and reach of the radio and TV station.

He noted that the governor through his appointment of well known practitioners like Mr. Chido Obidiegwu and Bob-Manuel Udokwu as his assistants has demonstrated that he is a friend of the entertainment sector.

He further promised that entertainment practitioners from Anambra state will always support his government and will use their various movie roles and other platforms to promote Anambra state.
