“This population of practitioners also feeds broadcast organizations in other parts of the country; thus, the responsibility of setting the bar rests on Lagos.”

Makinde called on all stakeholders in the broadcasting industry—including producers, presenters, journalists, engineers, managers, editors, and sponsors—to collaborate with the society’s leadership in Lagos.

According to him, his vision is to establish Lagos as the most reputable voice in broadcast practice, not just in Nigeria but across Africa and the world.

This new leadership team is expected to drive significant improvements in broadcast standards and practices, fostering a more professional and globally competitive broadcasting environment in Lagos and beyond.
