There is no gainsaying the fact that with the recent developments in Nigeria, digital media is well established as a tool for socio-economic prosperity. One that must be deliberately deployed for us to maximise its potential. In light of these, and many other instances, we deemed it fit to centre our dialogue around this subject.”
