The Triumph Publishing Company Ltd., publishers of the Triumph Newspapers, has resumed operation after a six-year closure.

The managing director of the company, Lawan Sabo, made the disclosure at a news conference in Kano on Saturday.

He said the company which resumed operations on September 27, 2018 would begin weekly production of The Triumph Newspapers, pending when it would commence daily production.

He commended the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, and the state commissioner for Information, Mohammed Garba, for their commitment toward the revitalisation of the company which was closed down in 2012.

“The Triumph Publishing Company is not only a publishing company but a training ground for journalists as the company had produced a number of journalists, who had made their marks in the profession.

“The paper had produced prominent journalists like Garba Shehu, the SSA to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Mohammed Garba, the Kano State Commissioner for Information and late Bilkisu Yusuf, a former Editor of the New Nigerian Newspaper, among others, “ he said.

He said the company would continue to partner with individuals and corporate organisations to enable it remain afloat.

According to him, the management of the company will also continue welcome useful criticisms and suggestions with a view to ensuring effective service delivery.

Mr Sabo promised to bring back some of the best workers of the company, who were redeployed to other ministries, departments and agencies after the closure of the company.

He said bringing back the best hands to the company was necessary, to enable it resume on a sound footing.

On revenue generation, the managing director said the company would diversify to other ventures, to generate more revenue for the company.

On February 21, 2017, Mr Ganduje appointed Mr Sabo as the managing director as part of efforts to revive the moribund company.

Triumph Publishing Company was unceremoniously closed down by the Kwankwaso administration in 2012.
