Nigeria to launch first digital radio station

Nigeria’s minister of information, Labaran Maku has revealed that the country's first digital radio station is to be launched soon.

In a report by the Punch, Maku said the digital station will be world class and able to compete with global radio stations.

He urged members of the Federal Radio Corporation  of Nigeria (FRCN) to go beyond the traditional functions of the media, – such as providing information, education and entertainment -, and asked that they focus on playing a role in solving the numerous problems confronting the country. 

“Nigeria is going through a very challenging period in its history and the role of the broadcast media, especially FRCN becomes even more crucial,” Maku said.

“The public therefore, expects some ideas that will improve on the contents and programmes of the broadcast media and help to stabilise the polity,” he said.
