Society of Nigerian Broadcasters, Lagos chapter, elects Ayo Makinde as chairman

The Society of Nigerian Broadcasters, Lagos chapter, has elected Ayo Makinde as its pioneer chairman. He was returned unopposed, demonstrating strong support from the broadcast community.

Makinde, a broadcast practitioner with Channels Television, is in the leadership team with Sola Kosoko, General Manager of Lagos Television (LTV) as Vice Chairman, and Funmi Omoboriowo, Manager of Presentation at Radio Lagos/Eko FM, who will serve as Financial Secretary and Treasurer. Aminat Elegushi, a broadcaster with the LTV, has been appointed as the interim General Secretary.

In his acceptance speech, Makinde stressed the need to elevate Nigerian broadcast practices to a globally-acceptable level and as well enhance the capacity of practitioners to perform effectively.

“Lagos has arguably the largest population of broadcasters in Nigeria, working within the highest number of radio and television stations in the country. This population of practitioners also feeds broadcast organisations in other parts of the country, thus the responsibility of setting the bar rests on Lagos,” Makinde stated.

He urged all stakeholders in the broadcasting industry, including producers, presenters, journalists, engineers, managers, editors, and sponsors, to collaborate with the Society’s leadership in Lagos.

He said: “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.”
