He said the state government expects the committee to review existing Laws setting up the Bayelsa State Broadcasting Corporation and Bayelsa Newspaper Corporation with a view to identifying sections of the laws that might be relevant to making government policy objective for setting up media outfits materialised

Iworiso-Markson said it was also the responsibility of the committee to propose suitable management structure for the Bayelsa Media Corporation, as well as setting out the function and power of the Corporation’s Board.

He said the modern trend in media establishment is to ensure a slim but smart workforce and urged the committee to also design possible funding option for government owned media organisation with view to guarantying value for money. 

The Commissioner expressed confidence that at the end of the committee’s assignment, government will receive a quality report that the executive can forward to the Legislative arm for passage into law.

In his response, Epih thanked Hon. Iworiso Markson for the confidence reposed in them by their appointment
