The Federal Polytechnic in Auchi, Edo State, has officially opened a community radio station to enhance the effective flow of information dissemination within and outside the campus.
The station with the Frequency Modulation 94.1FM was inaugurated by the Rector of the polytechnic, Dr Philipa Idogho, with top officials of the institution in attendance.
According to the management, the station was meant to enhance effective flow of information dissemination within and outside the campus.
Dr Idogho praised the effort of the Dean of School of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Mr Francis Chete, and Head of Mass Communication department, Mr Abraham Obaze, for ensuring that the interests of the school are propagated.
She charged the staff of the radio station to be committed, advising them not to throw ethics of journalism into a daylight shame.
The new radio station has a clear signal that reaches some northern states such as Kebbi and Kogi. Other areas include Benin, Asaba, Akoko, Ekpeshi, Igarra, Okpella, and Okene. A caller from Kogi, Cynthia Ijeoma, confirmed the clear signal of the station and commended the management of the institution for a job well done.
