UNILAG Set To Open Campus TV Station

Officials of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) last week visited the institution’s Department of Mass Communication to inspect digital equipment acquired by the school to operate the station.

The inspection process ended with the NBC officials expressing confidence in the department’s capacity to manage the television station.

The Acting HOD, Dr Abigael Ogwezzy-Ndisika, expressed optimism that the department would be licensed to operate the station.

She said: “The issue of licensing is concluded. From what we heard from the team that came to assess the facilities, it is obvious that the department stands out. Our students too are on top of their game. We are currently a UNESCO-rated centre of excellence, and we are working on moving to distinction. We have the first radio station in Nigeria and we are also being licensed for the first television station in the country.”

She praised Prof Ralph Akinfeleye for making great efforts in the licensing bid.
