The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), has approved a campus radio for the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Ojere, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
The test transmission, which will be on 99.7 FM will start full operation as the “voice of development”.
Acting Rector, Dr. Adeoye Odedeji, who said the feat was in tandem with the vision of the state government added that the campus radio would serve as a practical medium for modern broadcast journalism.
Odedeji added that it would also enhance communication among MAPOLY’s ecosystem through educational and developmental programmes both terrestrially and online via www.mapolyradio.com.
He assured that the radio station would take off when the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) visit the polytechnic for re-accreditation of programmes and resource inspection of its 17 new programmes in August.
