She encouraged different partners, including the media, to join forces with the Federal Government to improve the projects. “It is all the more remunerating when our media feature this. The way that it isn’t yet in the 36 states doesn’t mean it isn’t going on. “Indeed, even the individuals who have profited by this, know this; networks have profited, yet we don’t need to transform this into publicity.”
