“It will involve the community development associations who would form its ownership, control and determine its content in such a way that it will relay local and community news in the dominant language of that area. So as to promote the various local languages.
“We will start with the 20 LGAs and hoping that this year we will start with about six of them. And as we get more funds, in the next one year, others will come on board. We will also try to experiment with the internet version. I mean internet radio, because it is cheaper, has a wider coverage, not limited by signal or location and more applicable these days when very few people go about with radio.”
