About 10 universities and polytechnics have applied for the establishment of radio stations on their campuses. The head of Mass Communication Department Federal Polytechnic Bauchi, Malam Awwal Bala Aminu, made this known while exchanging views with the new general manager radio Nigeria /FM Bauchi Alhaji Musa Waziri Hardawa during a visit.

Malam Awwal Bala Aminu says that the radio stations were needed to allow students in the various mass communications departments to have practical experience of what they learnt as done in advanced nations. He however, said that the National broadcasting Commission had refused to grant licenses to the institutions even though Lagos had being granted six years ago put it has not put it into use. Malam Awwal Bala Aminu noted that this is counter-productive especially when the student will be denied the opportunity to benefit from such radio stations which will operate only within the campuses. Responding, the general manager of the station, Alhaji Musa Waziri Hardawa, declared willingness to cooperate with the institution towards the promotion of excellence in the profession. Alhaji Musa Waziri described training as one of the cardinal objects of the radio Nigeria towards provision of optimum service delivery to the people.
