Ekiti FRCN station still on generator, 10 years after take-off
General Manager of the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria in Ekiti State, Progress FM, Pastor Dare Olorunfemi, has pleaded with government and concerned individuals to help the station solve the electricity problem confronting the station.
The general manager lamented that ten years after its establishment, the radio station is yet to be connected to the national grid for power supply, saying it is still relying on generator to power its equipment.
This, he said, was adversely affecting the station’s revenue as huge sums of money were being expended on fuel and the maintenance of generator.
Speaking at the weekend on activities lined up to mark the 10th anniversary of the radio station, Pastor Olorunfemi appealed to concerned authorities to help solve the problem.
“Despite that, the management of the station took steps to fix cables, did the necessary wiring and kept the transformer for use. When the quality of the power supply improved and we were to connect, we discovered that some people had removed all the cables and wires and we started all over again. We were to connect the transformer last December, precisely on the 23rd, but we found out that the transformer had gone bad and we do not have the capacity to buy another one now,” he said.
