Poly floats radio station


The much-awaited radio station built by the management of the Federal Polytechnic, Auchi has been officially inaugurated. According to the management, the station was meant to enhance 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, last week with top officials of the institution in attendance. She charged the workers of the radio station to be committed, advising them not to throw ethics of journalism into a daylight shame.

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 school are propagated.

CAMPUSLIFE gathered that the 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, praising the management of the institution for the job well done.
