Startimes Celebrates Nigeria At 57, Promise Affordable Entertainment
NIGERIA will be 57 tomorrow and to mark the occasion, Startimes Nigeria has issued goodwill message in celebration of anniversary.
In a statement signed by the Chief Executive Officer of the PAYTV provider, Mr. Justin Zhang, stated that Nigeria’s greatness could not be halted, irrespective of the challenges it may have.
He noted that Startimes will continue to align with the vision of the founding fathers, past heroes, statesmen and leaders at all levels on providing the basic necessities to every Nigerian, which he said includes affordable entertainment.
“As Nigeria marches on towards social, economic and technological greatness, Startimes acknowledge the role technology plays, especially communication technology in shaping the cultural life of the people.
“While we celebrate with all Nigerians on this special day, we are also proud to note that the Nigerian government through her investment in communication technologies has wittingly subscribed to the time tested tenets that building social cohesion and trust between the nation and its people remain the veritable anchor for progress and development for all to rely and be proud as a nation.
“At Startimes, we understand how important communication is, as a vehicle of cohesion, hence we have developed and deployed cross cultural programs and projects that cut across social and political barriers at very affordable prices for our subscribers and viewers,” the statement read.
Zhang further explained that as partners with the Federal Government in the ongoing digitalization process, Startimes has expanded its presence in Nigeria with the setting up digital television manufacturing plant in the country, thereby driving home its commitments to the project and at the same time give credence to the government's local contents policy while creating more jobs across the country.
He also stated that Startimes would further deepen its engagement with the people of Nigeria, especially in rural communities as demonstrated by its flagship corporate social responsibility initiative dubbed 'Digital Village Project' to Hulumi in Abuja, which witnessed the deployment of satellite television equipment that would broadcasts over 400 entertainment programs to the community.
