PR Consultants Commend Buhari For Banning Importation of PR Professionals

Image
The Public Relations Consultants Association of Nigeria (PRCAN) has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for signing the Executive Order making it unlawful to grant visas to expatriates to come into Nigeria to render professional services, which could be otherwise provided by Nigerian professionals.

According to a statetement issued in Lagos and signed by the association's President, John Ehiguese, and Publicity Secretary, Israel Jaiye Opayemi, PRCAN described the Executive Order as "exceptional, courageous and an act of nationalism which puts our country first over and above the popular penchant of government officials for all things foreign, and particularly Caucasian."
PRCAN, the regulatory body of Public Relations consultancies in Nigeria, described the Executive Order as a valid extension of the "Buy Nigeria, Save the Naira" campaign of the Federal Government of Nigeria, which a large number of government officials had treated with contempt.

Nigeria: Adesina as Buhari's PR disaster

Image
In love, opposites attract; in politics birds of the same feather flock together. President Muhammadu Buhari deserves Femi Adesina as much as Goodluck Jonathan deserved Doyin Okupe and Reuben Apati. Donald Trump deserves his Sanders. That is how it works.


It used to be that an image-maker is as close to his principal as a skin to the body. It is so arranged because the principal knows that in a world where negativity makes the best news, a wink from an image maker could help mitigate disaster and that not all questions deserve an answer.
As Buhari's spokesman Adesina is not assured the privilege of travelling with his principal. I'll bet his presence is not required when his boss meets the global press he craves. Adesina wrote himself into appointment, but he's absent when needed to coach his principal on how to anticipate crises and diffuse explosive situations. He'll be considered lucky if he gets his principal's schedule in the morning, obviously not being invo…

IN NIGERIA 'POLICE IS YOUR FRIEND'. REALLY? PR LESSONS FROM THIS...

Image
According to the theory of cognitive dissonance, "The mind cannot hold two contrasting ideas at the same time, the mind either accepts or rejects the new idea". (based on Socio-Psychological or socio-cultural biases). The police's mantra says, *"Police is your friend"*, The people say, *"Police is not our friend"* (according to an NOIPolls, 52% of respondents said 'No' to the question 'would you say a police officer is your friend?').


One of the ways of removing/reducing cognitive dissonance is to present the new idea from another angle.
CSP Dolapo Badmus has done a marvelous job in finding a new angle. She is doing a very good job telling the story of the police through entertainment and using it to connect with the youths. And I must say, people love her especially on social media. I don't think there has been any police spokesperson that has enjoined this type of popularity & admiration among civilians.
But her recent interv…
