Over the weekend Dr. Oby Ezekwesili was honoured by Thisday Newspaper for her four-year tenure as vice president Africa region of the World Bank at a banquet dinner. CEO of Thisday Nduka Obaigbena used this opportunity to announce that his next venture is to launch the Arise Television Network which will broadcast live news and information on Africa to viewers in major cities of the world. Mr Obaigbena said the following
“Ladies and gentlemen, before now you are aware that news and information on Africa has been broadcasted by Sky News, Aljazeera and CNN but THISDAY is set to alter the information landscape with Arise Television Network in about 180 days from now, broadcasting live news and information on Africa from major capital cities of the world to over 200 million global audience….From London where we have our operational licence, we will broadcast live in New Delhi, Johannesburg, Beijing, New York, Lagos and a host of other capital cities of the world,”
I sincerely hope that there will be significant content on fashion and culture in Africa considering that it is the foundation of the Arise brand.
