Reuben Abati and Mercy Ajisafe were on ground to ensure the Thisday Media Group and ARISE News Channel’s end of year ran smoothly. Between Reuben’s smooth delivery and Mercy’s witty remarks and confidence on stage, they both held their audience captive with their rapport. Mercy, being a true natural with public speaking took the reins and flowed effortlessly with her male counterpart Reuben who is equally a master of the game when he gets hold of the microphone. Reuben thanked the guests for coming and called out a few dignitaries amongst the crowd, personally thanking them for taking time out to spend the evening with the Thisday Media Group and ARISE News Channel family. Mercy, an anchor in ARISE, was also quick to thank her co-anchors for being major players in its success.
And last but not the least, Md of Arise News Channel, Ijeoma Nwogwugwu gave the final vote of thanks and expressed true gratitude to the friends of the Group Chairman of Thisday Media Group and ARISE News Channel, for still turning up even though the Chairman himself was indisposed and could not attend the event.
their act of solidarity showed the level of respect these titans and captains of industries had for the Chairman not to mention the depth of a relationship he has built with them for several decades, a fact Nwogwugwu acknowledged in her speech. She also went on to thank both members of the Thisday Media Group and ARISE News Channel for their collective effort and hard-work without which, both organizations will not be where it is today. She acknowledged the tutelage of the Chairman and the role he has played towards ensuring the success of both brands. She also mentioned the pivotal role he has played in the growth of every staff’s learning curve, making them aspire to do better and be better in whatever role they play in both organizations. She encouraged their continuous dedication of the staff and was proud that even without the larger-than-life presence of the Chairman, the event was well attended.
