This organization called the Federal Government owes it to the citizens to provide them with information about the happenings in the country. Happenings like the state of the economy, appointment of ministers and any other information about the country. Though it is the duty of the media to pass this information to the public, it will be difficult without good media relations. The media has to perform its duties and good media relations will help the government have a good relationship with the public as seen in the story because only the right information will be disseminated.
