Most of the Fiji Broadcasting Corporations achievements over the years have been downplayed and ridiculed by members of the public, especially on social media.
While making submissions to the Standing Committee on Economic Affairs today, FBC chief executive, Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum highlighted that there’s always been misinformation surrounding the organization’s success.
Sayed-Khaiyum says the FBC has nothing to hide and this is reflected in the financial reports.
“What upsets me personally is the effect it has on our staff sometimes. Because there they are busting their guts to work really hard to achieve in an industry where there’s no formal training in our country for and they learn a lot of stuff online and we mentor a lot of people and try and pay them as best as we can and give them the best environment to work in. Then when they get out of the office – they are accused of being part of some big conspiracy to cheat the people of Fiji”
Sayed-Khaiyum reveals that the FBC employs a lot of young people who are exposed to a lot of misinformation regarding the organization and this is a concern.
“That happens to FBC on almost a daily basis and it’s not confined to unknown individuals hiding behind fake profiles. It also involves real people with real profiles and politicians and prominent members of our community.”
The Chief Executive says the FBC is where it is today because of its staff and their commitment towards ensuring Fijians get the services they deserve.
