OMPAN, in a congratulatory message signed by its state chairman, Mr Remi Oladoye and made available to pressmen by PRO Dare Adeniran, said, “the new CPS, Mr Taiwo Adisa is an experienced and responsible communication expert.”
“Mr Taiwo Adisa is one of the leaders many of us consider as a role model in the media profession and we expect that his involvement in the government will go a long way in projecting the image and policies of the government through effective communication,” the statement added.
While assuring the new CPS of maximum support, the online media group said they are ready for a mutually benefitting collaboration with government, through prompt and effective dissemination of news in line with ideals for moving Oyo State forward.
