Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) has called on the Federal Government to grant waivers to media houses on newsprint, printing machines and other imported consumables in the industry to enable them stay in business.
This is even it says it plans to partner with government to create more jobs and make the media industry more viable.
The President of the Guild, Mrs. Funke Egbemode, made the call when she led leadership of the Guild to a meeting Wednesday night with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, at the Presidential Villa Abuja.
She said the industry was in distress and since it was not a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) but businesses that pay taxes, pension, they are also in need of cushions, intervention funds in other to remain in business.
Speaking to State House Correspondents at the end of the meeting, Egbemode, who described the discussion with Osinbajo as fruitful, assured that the media will remain professional in the discharge of their duties.
