On 3rd May 2019, Radio Pacis marked World Press Freedom Day, by cleaning around Ediofe Trading Centre.
The Keep Ediofe trading center clean campaign was also a deliberate step to sensitize the public more on the Go green campaign started by radio pacis to conserve the environment.
Fr. Charles Idraku the Assistant Director of Radio Pacis stressed that the campaign was also to re awaken the public on the letter written by Pope Francis in 2015 where he asked Christians and people of good will all over the world to care about the environment since many of our human activities have degraded the environment.
The residents of Ediofe trading were excited and pleased with what the staff of Radio Pacis did and some of them who joined the team in cleaning the trading center were grateful for this initiative.
David Asua the person in charge of health at the Ediofe trading center pledged to continue with the good example shown by Radio Pacis.
“As the trading Centre committee will meet to decide how best to continue with this challenge of Pacis Radio”, he said.
In his message for the World Press Freedom Day 2019 Ayikobua Noel the Programs Manger Radio Pacis emphasized on the various challenges that have made it very difficult for journalists to practice their profession.
“Many Journalists have lost their lives, jobs, families, body parts, source of livelihood to mention but a few. But what makes it interesting is the spirit is still strong” he noted.
The social media coordinator of Radio Pacis Amule Daniel appreciated the staff, the artists, guests who appeared on the various programs who joined hands to clean Ediofe trading Centre.
