The Kwara government says it will partner with the Freelance and Independent Broadcasters’ Association of Nigeria (FIBAN) in achieving common goals.

Alhaji Mahmud Ajeigbe, the state’s Commissioner for Information and Communications, said this in Ilorin when he received Desmond Nwachukwu, a presidential aspirant in the association’s forthcoming national elections.

He said the state government had been supporting the association as a counterpart of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ).

According to him, the profession has been a source of employment to the youth in the country and a platform for Information dissemination.
