Media Search for Accountability, an NGO, has adjudged Katsina state as the ‘Most Visible State in the Media’, amongst the 36 states of the federation in 2016.
A report by the organization made available to newsmen in Kano on Tuesday, indicated that the findings did not include government sponsored materials, like advertisements and supplements.
The report signed by Mr Jackson Walter, media Manager of the organization, said it focused on development stories generated from all the states.

”We considered those items as tailored”.
It added that preferences were also given to stories that had direct link to the citizenry, especially the poor and vulnerable
