FBI wanted list: public relations experts offer to assist govt

THE Public Relations Consultants’ Association of Nigeria (PRCAN), has offered the professional body’s assistance to the Federal Government in improving the country’s battered image on the international scene.
Mr. Israel Jaiye Opayemi, newly elected President of the association, speaking at the PRCAN 2019 Annual General Meeting in the wake of the recent grand jury indictment of 77 Nigerians for alleged involvement in online fraud schemes in the United States, he said what was needed was a robust response strategy and campaign plan, and not knee-jerk reactions from several government spokespersons.
According to him, “The truth is, a narrative has been created about us as Nigerians. A wrong perception with its attendant generalisation has also been created. Not a few Nigerians have cancelled their planned trips to the United States for fear of the horrible treatment they will be subjected to by the United States Immigration.”
He added that “in times like this, governments the world over would rely on the professional advice and expertise of practitioners who are not in any short supply within the Nigerian Public Relations community to help craft a response strategy and a campaign plan to manage the narrative and shape the perception. This has not been the case here.”
Other members of the executives who will be steering the affairs of PRCAN over the next two years are Mr. Adedayo Ojo (Vice President); Mrs. Tokunbo George-Taylor (Secretary General); Ms. Martha Okpeke (Assistant Secretary General); Mr. Bolaji Abimbola (Publicity Secretary), and Mr. Raheem Olabode (Treasurer).
