According to him, politicians only air their views anyhow on the various media outlets. "Politicians being emotional laborers give birth at any place and everywhere they find themselves".
He posited, "politicians are not doing political communication as expected of them, simply because they allow their emotions to cloud their minds.
He also discussed with participants the path chosen to write specifically on the proper political communications to follow.
This he said, will help advance the course of communication as advocates, journalists, PR practitioners, and think tank policy analysts.
