FG Pledges Support For Community Radio Stations

The Federal Government has promised to strengthen the community radio capacity to thrive as an effective tool in shaping the nation’s democracy.

The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, revealed this in a statement to commemorate World Radio Day, celebrated annually.

"The government recognizes the diversity of the Nigerian population and acknowledges the power of radio to reach people in their local languages", he said. 

"Currently, only 89 such stations have been granted broadcast licenses in Nigeria. However, the government intends to change this trend by providing a more favourable environment for other radio stations to emerge and for the existing ones to strengthen their capacity”, he said.
