He assured that Promasidor will not relent in contributing to development of journalism practice in Nigeria. His words: “Promasidor Quill Awards is committed to setting the pace in rewarding journalists based on merit for their work and not a self-seeking approach to get accolades, but a professional platform of assessment, recognition and reward for outstanding journalistic work”.
Enahoro noted that the media is an important organ in the life of our society which plays a key role in checking the pulse of different issues. He said the role of journalists is often overlooked and taken for granted. Based on this, he said Promasidor’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Strategy goes beyond merely giving back to the society. His words: “We focus our engagements in sustainable value creation by considering the dynamics of change in social trends, the environment, business ethics and find the optimal point where the interest of our various stakeholders assume an optimum balance”.
