The zonal phase of the Seminar on Media Engagement in CrisisSituation being organized by the Centre for Crisis Communication(CCC) for the public relations and information officers of military, security and response   agencies in Nigeria, has shifted to the South-South as Port Harcourt the Rivers State capital is set to host the event.

The capacity building seminar with   the   theme, “Enhancing then Capacity   of   the   Public Relations and Information   Officers in Addressing Crisis  Situations”,  commenced in Abuja  in April  and was replicated in Bauchi in June for participants domiciled in thenorth east region.

The Port Harcourt version is billed to take placeon 20-21 July, 2016 and will be declared open by the Honourable Minister of Interior, Lt. Gen. Abdulrahaman Dambazau (Rtd).

Following the success recorded   in   the   earlier   seminar,   the organizers, Centre for Crisis Communication with the support ofNigeria Stability and Reconciliation Programme (NSRP) decided to replicate the programme in the North East and the South-South region of the country where crisis   information management is more challenging.

The essence of moving the seminar around is to enable information officers of these agencies who are operating in the zones to benefit from the rich knowledge which the seminar promises.

The programme is aimed at strengthening the capacity of target participants – public relations and information officers of military, security and response agencies – to relate with the media more professionally, adopting the best practices in the management ofinformation, especially during   crisis.

It is   also hoped that the platform will enhance better synergy and coordination amongst security and media   organisation in  the dissemination   of   crisis information.
