The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, who was represented by the Director-General, Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation, Mr. Folorunsho Coker described the development as a revolution within the Nigerian broadcast, entertainment, and media industry.
Osinbajo said, “This landmark event supports government’s resolve to carry out reforms in the sector and grow the economy by leveraging on the potential of the creative sector and providing sustainable platforms to ensure real growth in the sector.”
“I’m told the channel will focus largely on family entertainment and education. This, I hope, will make a meaningful impact on the viewing public with content that uplifts the public and makes society better.”
The Managing Director of Solution Media & Infotech, owners of Hi-Impact TV, Prince Adeyeloye Lipede, said the new TV station decided to go on full HD because of the advantage of clearer vision which will have a positive impact on viewers and advertisers.
“We have lined up quality programmes that will make quality time spent sitting behind screen worthwhile. We have employed professional teachers to take various subjects that usually pose problems to students writing both the senior and junior WASSCE papers as well as those preparing to write the UTME in addition to many quality and entertaining programmes,” Lipede said.
