"As we inaugurate Nigeria Public Relations Week, we extend our heartfelt thanks to the President and Chairman of the Governing Council of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations, Dr. Ike Neliaku FNIPR, and its members. We appreciate them choosing our state as the host for this significant event, and we are confident they will appreciate our warm hospitality.

The chosen theme for this event, "Leveraging Public Relations as a Critical Asset for Nigeria's Economic and Reputation Renaissance," aligns perfectly with the Renewed Hope Agenda of our President, Asiwaju Bola Hammed Tinubu, GCFR. It emphasises the pressing need to boost economic growth and prosperity by revitalising our national reputation to attract foreign investments.

Public relations plays a vital role as it involves strategic communication from an organisation to the public, aiming to maintain or enhance the public image and respond to public discourse. It serves as a crucial asset for any responsive government striving to build a vibrant economy and achieve sustainable growth. Through effective public relations initiatives, a country's vision and policies can be better understood by its citizens, fostering both international and bilateral cooperation.

I am honoured to be chosen as their patron and express my gratitude, pledging to uphold the institute's principles by continuing to promote a positive image for our state and Nigeria as a whole. I would also like to congratulate Mr. Yomi Badejo, the Chairman of the National Planning Committee, and his dedicated team for their hard work in ensuring the success of this event."
