Kebbi Varsity Suspends FM Station Built by Students, Awaits License from NBC

Last year, some students of Electric and Electronic Technology Engineering Department at Kebbi State University of Science and Technology, Aliero, built a campus Frequency Modulation (FM) radio station, but was suspended by the varsity’s management as it pursues a license from Nigeria Broadcasting Cooperation (NBC).

The Vice-Chancellor of the university, Professor Ladan Aliero, told The Guardian that the FM was established by the students to streamline their academic performance and intelligence.

Aliero who spoke through the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Professor Sa’adu Birnin Yauri, said the radio station was tested, operated for more than a month, and was suspended afterward.

He, however, assured students that management is working hard to meet up with NBC requirements to resume operations fully. According to him, the FM, if fully operational, would boost revenue profile of the institution and help increase awareness in terms of information dissemination.

Yauri noted that the radio station will be upgraded to serve nearby communities and bring more commercial benefits to the school.
