The National Broadcasting Commission has granted an operational licence to the National Youth Service Corps for the commencement of direct satellite broadcasting and Internet protocol television.
The NYSC Director-General, Major General Shuaibu Ibrahim, received the broadcast licence from his NBC counterpart, Mallam Balarabe Ilela, in Abuja on Wednesday.
He said with the approval, the Federal Government would give more voice to the scheme “to tell the NYSC story, especially its tremendous achievements to the whole world.”
He said the NYSC, as one of the successful achievements of the Yakubu Gowon’s administration, had achieved its purpose of uniting the country in several ways and contributing immensely to national development.
He, however, said the NYSC radio license was underway.
Ibrahim said since his assumption of duty, he had been passionate about the NYSC having its own radio and television stations.
