Government can support the media by carrying every body along and by providing modern studio and provide job opportunities for broadcasters, presenters and journalists in both broadcast and print media. Also, government should try to encourage the people that are creating time to find all means to make people smile and keeping them updated on issues in the society.How I became Radio Presenter, Event Entertainer --- Omo Culture

Advice to youths

The little advice to the youths out there is that they should try and discover themselves and find all means to work when they have the strength and they should not join any bad group that will cut their lives short.

In addition, youths should not join the people that want money by all means and they should stop drug abuse because of their future as drug abuse kill faster and destroy life.
