|Lagos Radio House|
It was early morning yesterday; I turn my radio to 96.1Fm and heard the voice saying welcome to Lagos Traffic Radio 96.1fm live from Agidingbi, Ikeja- Lagos State. I said to myself this is a very good idea from Lagos State government.
Lagos State governor Mr. Raji Fashola performs the launch of the radio yesterday.
The Lagos Traffic Radio 96.1fmis to provide relevant information on traffic across Lagos State. I take my time to listen to many callers across Lagos as they appreciate and praise the governor for the initiative. It was as if they already know the radio station before. People calling all over Lagos State to welcome the radio on air.
From my own point of view, this radio will expose many Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) officials who perform their job very well and also expose among the officials who involved in sharp practice. People have been calling to tell Traffic Radio 96.1fm how some of them are collecting money from commuters.
What interests me most is how they are run their programme both in English and in Yoruba languages respectively. This gives many people opportunities to call in and express themselves in their chosen languages.
Development in any society is a process and I believe one day Nigeria will get there; it’s just a matter of time. Let’s give a little support we can to move our society forward.
God bless Nigeria!!!
