Borno State Government in collaboration with North East Regional Initiative NERI, is to establish four community radio stations in the state.
The Commissioner for Home Affairs, Information and Culture, Babakura Abba-Jato, made this known on Monday in Maiduguri at the flag-off of an inter-ministerial press briefing to mark the First Anniversary of Governor Babagana Zulum in office.
Mr Abba-Jato said already, the station in Biu town had been completed and operational, while the remaining three will be sited in Monguno, Damasak and Dikwa towns.
The commissioner also said the Borno Radio and Television station BRTV had been provided with a new transmitter, while booster stations would be established to ensure that it covered the entire state and beyond.
He said the state information unit has been equipped with facilities to make it more effective. The commissioner whose ministry covers the state Fire Service, said 62 fire engines are undergoing rehabilitation to boost the state fleet of fire-fighting engines.
The commissioner said the development will make Borno to be the state with the highest number of fire-fighting engines in the country
