TAWAU: The Multimedia and Communications Ministry will strive and fight to deal with digital media crimes by channelling information in a more creative, fresh, up-to-date and accurate manner, including through radio.

Assistant Minister to the Chief Minister, Datuk Nizam Abu Bakar Titingan, said the power of radio in channelling accurate and up-to-date information, especially during the spread of Covid19, succeeded in reducing the community’s anxiety, while also complying with instructions and standard operating procedures by the authorities.

Thus, he sees the organisation of World Radio Day every Feb 13 as a reminder to the public about the role and function of radio which is always relevant to current developments.

“Although at that time (Covid19 pandemic), the role of social media was very extensive, there were some irresponsible parties who spread false information, causing annoyance among the community.
