In order to enhance educational broadcasting in Nigeria, the Japanese government today hands over a 200kW mediumwave transmitter to the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) in Kaduna.
This was made known in a statement signed by the corporation’s head of corporate development and communications, Ike Okere. It read in part: “The Nigerian and the Japanese governments are cooperating in enhancing educational broadcast in the country through their donation of transmitters to be installed at Kaduna and Enugu zones of FRCN which, with adequate antennas, will cover most parts of the country.”
The statement, which mentioned that the effort is part of the Japanese Grant Aid project for the improvement of mediumwave broadcasting in Nigeria, explained that with the handover of the transmitter, it is expected that grassroots and educational broadcasting will be enhanced.
The event, which is billed to take place in Jaji, Kaduna State, will be attended by officials of the Japanese government and the FRCN.
