The Federal Government has expressed readiness to work with the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) in developing communication strategies that will drive the Renewal Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, stated this while inaugurating the governing council of the NIPR on Tuesday in Abuja.

The Minister who praised NIPR for its initiatives said such plans can potentially transform the Institute and the country into a global reputational hub.

He called on the Institute to assist Nigeria in redeeming its image on the global stage.

“We must find practical public relations solutions to reclaim our damaged reputational asset. Other nations also have their difficulties, but the difference is in how the issues are managed with nuance and context, and this is usually achieved through a robust partnership between government, professional groups like the NIPR, and the citizens,” he said.

The Minister also called on Nigerians to be patient, stating that the present administration has a well-developed economic plan and would soon start yielding fruit.

“The present administration has recorded appreciable successes in some key areas of the economy within the short period in office, and we remain committed to comprehensive reforms that will change the nation’s development narrative for good,” he said.

The Minister also extolled the foresight of the founding fathers of NIPR for conceiving the idea 60 years ago, which elevated the Institute to an enviable chartered status.
