The Federal Government has confirmed the acquisition of an Amplitude Modulation radio broadcast licence, to reach herdsmen across various locations in the country.
The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, stated this in Abuja during an interview with newsmen.
According to Adamu, the establishment of the radio frequency, was to end the perennial farmers-herders crisis across the country.
The Minister explained that the radio service would operate on frequency of 720KHz and would air in Fulani language.
Adamu said, “The radio service will serve as a vehicle for social mobilisation and education, in addition to interactive radio instruction methodology that will be adopted to reach the very hard-to-reach segment of our target population.
“Additionally, it will enhance our capacity to address crisis between herders and farmers with attendant consequences to loss of lives, destruction of productive assets, nomadic schools, facilities teaching and learning resources.”
