Oyo State Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism has started test transmission of its online radio with the broadcast of news and activities of the government starting by January 2020.
The online radio is another innovation to complement other platforms upon which Oyo State government programmes, policies, and actions were related to the masses.
According to the Commissioner for Information, Culture, and Tourism, Wasiu Olatubosun, the radio will have contents that would relay activities of all Ministries, Directorates, and Agencies of the State and also engender feedback mechanism from the people.
He disclosed that the link to listen to the online radio is https://information.oyostate.gov.ng/ministry-of-information-live-stream/ as classical Yoruba music, as well as contemporary music, were already being enjoyed on the radio.
“This is another innovation to complement other efforts of the Ministry in relaying the welfarist activities of the administration of Governor Seyi Makinde in making life meaningful to the people of Oyo State.
“The radio is currently on test transmission, playing good music and by January next year, we shall commence broadcast of news and activities of the State government through the workings of the Ministries, Directorates, and Agencies.
“It is for the sole purpose of bringing governance to the people with little or no cost at the grassroots, in the urban area and wherever one may be in the world,” he stated.
