Corporate image is the perception of corporation, an institution or government which exists in the minds of its various publics.
According to Trench (2009:3), corporate images typically can be fashioned fairly quickly through specific actions and well-conceived communication programs, whereas reputations evolve over time as a result of consistent performance and can be reinforced through corporate communication.
Every corporation, government or institution must therefore be concerned about its image among its important constituents or stakeholders because there is a link between an individual’s image of an organization and that person’s behaviour towards the Organization.
It is against this background that the researcher sets out to investigate and analyse the perception which exists in the minds of the citizenry of Enugu State about the state government and the efforts of the government in building image, reputation and identity for itself vis-à-vis the role of the state-owned media organ (ESBS) in reinforcing this image.
