Speaking on the event, Managing Director/Editor-in-Chief of TheNiche on Sunday, Ikechukwu Amaechi, said “Though we have been in the market since April 20, 2014, this public presentation of our newspaper is a significant milestone in the life of this organisation. What we are doing is to formally sign a fidelity bond with Nigerians, having convinced ourselves in the last four months that we have succeeded in carving a niche for ourselves by creating a product that meets the highest standards.

“For us in TheNiche family, this is a paradigm shift in the Nigerian media industry. The idea is to create something new, fresh and innovative; something different. Credibility will be our maxim. And we are happy that the very discerning Nigerian readers have already started noticing the difference.”

Professor Anya also expressed his pleasure at his choice as Chairman.

According to him, “I accepted to be the chairman of the public presentation of TheNiche on Sunday because of the standards they have set in so short a time. The quality of the newspaper meets with my own standards; therefore, I have no hesitation identifying with it. It is one of the best, if not the best newspaper in the country today, both in content and design.”

The event will begin at 12 noon with Gbenga Adeyinka 1st as Master of Ceremonies.
