Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State has alleged that the immediate government of the state deliberately “killed” Radio Kwara in the bid to float their own private radio station. He said the motive is to incapacitate the state owned broadcasting station preparatory to setting up their own station as part of move to attack his government.
Abdulrazaq said this in Ilorin when he paid an unscheduled visit to the premises of Kwara State Broadcasting Corporation, owner of Radio Kwara, to access level of decay in the broadcasting outfit.
Both AM and FM stations of Radio Kwara have been in comatose for some months, prior to the inauguration of the Governor.
The Governor who said it is shameful that capable hands in the state broadcasting station has been rendered redundant lamented that the past government allowed situation to deteriorate in the station, assuring that his administration will correct the anomaly.
However, the Governor assured that the radio station would bounce back soon so as to continue disseminating information to the people of the state.
