The Chairman and Editor-in-Chief, Nduka Obaigbena, affirmed the media outlet’s determination to launch in all countries worldwide.

Mr Obaigbena stated that Arise News’s expansion to Southern Africa solidifies its position as the foremost broadcaster in Africa, characterised by independence and clear thinking.

He said, “We are determined to celebrate the best of Africa and tell the African story in the global marketplace. We shall continually showcase the emerging African century, in which Nigeria and other African countries will be some of the leading economies worldwide.

“This is a marathon and not a dash: we will do for Nigeria and Africa what the CNNs, the BBCs, and Aljazeeras have done for their nations and regions. No one will shape your narrative better than you in the emerging AI-driven new information highway.”
