A delegation from Nigeria’s leading online daily newspaper, News Express Nigeria (newsexpressngr.com) on Friday (August 18, 2017) paid a courtesy visit to the Special Adviser to the President on Media & Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Mr. Adesina, despite being busy preparing for the return, today, of President Muhammadu Buhari from a three-month medical vacation in London, warmly received the News Express delegation in his office around 2pm.
After exchange of pleasantries, News Express Publisher/Editor-in-Chief, Mr. Isaac Umunna, informed their host that they were in the seat of power to brief him on activities lined up to mark the paper’s fifth anniversary.
“News Express started operation in a modest way in late August 2012 but, by the grace of God, has grown phenomenally to become one of Nigeria’s most popular and influential newspapers. We, therefore, see reason to celebrate,” Umunna said.
He noted that News Express is currently read by upwards of 300,000 people across the world and records traffic of about 100 million hits per annum. “This is quite remarkable considering that News Express is not a tabloid but a serious newspaper. Apart from our choice of stories, we do not, as a policy, publish nude photos and dead bodies. It is a paper for decision makers and can be read by both young and old,” Umunna said.
Responding, the Presidential Spokesman thanked the News Express team for visiting and promised to actively participate in the paper’s fifth anniversary activities.
Other members of the News Express delegation included the Head of Operations, Mrs. Hope Umunna, and the Abuja Correspondent, Mr. Mayowa Okekale.
