SHETTIMA INAUGURATES IJELE 93.1FM RADIO STATION
On Thursday, the 30th of November, Vice President Kashim Shettima, in Oraifite, Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra, inaugurated Ijele 93.1FM Radio Station.
During the launch, our Chairman, Sir Dr Emeka Offor took out time to explain the reasons behind the establishment of another radio station in Oraifite.
He said apart from the already existing Blaze FM located in the same area, Ijele FM radio station would promote the Igbo language and ensure it did not go into extinction.
He said, “There’s no difference between the two radio stations. Yes, they’re being housed under the same facility with the same management.
“But the Ijele is established to service the Anambra popular. The primary aim is not only to bring back the mother tongue but to ensure the Igbo language doesn’t go into extinction (disappear).
“The Ijele radio is designed specifically to promote the Igbo language only. With the official launch of the Ijele FM radio station, we’ll be embarking upon a new era of communication and community engagement.
“This radio station, under the auspices of our Choffan Communication Limited subsidiary will be broadcasting solely in Igbo language.
“It will represent not only a platform for entertainment and news dissemination but also a medium for promoting unity, progress and social cohesion."
