The National Broadcasting Commission held a 2-day, March 19th-20th, training for Monitoring officers on Grade level 8 -10 at the New Keffi Hotel, Keffi, Nasarawa State.

The theme “Sharpening Monitoring Skills: Towards a Better Broadcast Regulation” was aimed at guiding officers to adequately carry out their monitoring duties professionally.

The Ag. Director General, Prof. Armstrong Idachaba, received a standing ovation in recognition of his appointment.

Addressing Monitoring officers at the event, he acknowledged the commitments, dedication  and contributions of the monitoring officers towards sanitizing the airwaves of unprofessional broadcast.

Prof. Idachaba noted that the job of Monitoring officers was ever-evolving due to technological advancement.

He said: “Technology drives content. You must be abreast at all times of the emerging phenomena in the broadcast industry. As a monitoring officer, you need to understand the increasing interplay between social media and mainstream traditional media.”

12 papers, highlighting key focus areas for the officers were presented by Senior Directors in the Commission.

Topics such as Monitoring Content for Standards, delivered by the Director Broadcast Monitoring, Dr Tony Anigala emphasized on the importance of observing, watching, reviewing and checking, over a period of time, any lapses/ shortcomings committed by broadcast stations.

Mr. Matthews Achara, Director DG’s Office, during the interactive session on Human Resource and Administration, delivered by Dr. Igomu Onoja, Director Human Resource and Administration, advised officers on the importance of Discipline.

He said: “Discipline is key to the growth of NBC but manpower planning helps the Commission determine the personnel needed, including the quality of such personnel.”

The Human Resource Director, however, warned against disseminating information to third parties, as it goes against the ethics and professionalism required of staff.

The two-day training ended with an award given to the best-dressed staff,

Confidence Ijeoma Okoh, from the Enugu zonal office was voted as the winner.
