Omokungbe expressed joy on the actualisation of the landmark project. He described it as a dream come true.
He praised the management of the station for their unflinching effort in running the station and ensuring its continued existence.
To make the radio station competitive among other campus radio stations in Lagos State and beyond, Omokungbe pledged to sustain and provide every need of the station at all times, and also provide a support system for the management of the radio to ensure smooth running.
The Director Special Duties, YABATECH, Biekoroma Amapakabo praised the Rector’s commitment to the project despite challenges posed by COVID-19.
