An Amplitude Modulation (AM) radio broadcast licence has been acquired by the Federal Government to be used to reach out to herdsmen in different locations in Nigeria, as part of effort to end farmers/herders crisis across some states.

Government said they realised that radio is the choice means of news for herdsmen, hence, the need reach out to them through that means, with the message of peace, unity, tolerance and education.

Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, who confirmed the acquisition of the licence in Abuja, on Tuesday, said the radio service would operate on frequency of 720KHz, and will be strictly in Fulani language.

He disclosed that plans are underway to secure funds for procurement and installation of requisite transmission equipment for the successful take-off of the radio station.

He said the radio services will, unarguably, serve as vehicle for social mobilisation and education, in addition to interactive radio instruction (IRI) methodology that would be ad- opted 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,” he said.
