The Director General of VON, Mallam Jibrin Baba Ndace, made this known when the management of Voice of Nigeria paid a courtesy call on the President of the Association, Mrs. Oghogho Musa, in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

Ndace emphasised that “VON was established to tell and shape the narrative of Nigeria, Nigerians, Africa, and Africans, including the Nigerian Armed Forces and DEPOWA.”

He said; “We do these by broadcasting in eight languages such as English, French, Swahili, Hausa,Igbo, Yoruba and Fulfulde.”

The cooperation is also in talks with the Chinese Embassy to begin broadcasting in Mandarin and other foreign languages.

The DG said; ”As the head, working with my team, we have decided that the cooperation will be narrating Nigerian stories, including the positive work that DEPOWA is doing for the youths and women in the barracks.”

Malam Ndace also commended the Association on the work they are doing for widows in the country.

The DG emphasised President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s commitment to ensuring that the Armed Forces receive the highest level of motivation and logistical support to successfully carry out their responsibilities.

While praising the troops safeguarding the nation, Ndace noted that some officers have been separated from their families for years, and tragically, some have made the ultimate sacrifice.

In her remarks, DEPOWA President Mrs. Oghogho Musa expressed readiness to collaborate with Voice of Nigeria on training initiatives to enhance the association’s skills diversity.

She reiterated the Association’s commitment to improving the lives of women and widows across Nigeria.
