Olaloye who is also General Manager, AMAC Community Radio, therefore acquainted the Chairman of the Division’s responsibilities, even as she appealed for assistance to tackle many of its challenges.
In a related development, Maikalangu disclosed plans by his administration to upgrade AMAC Community Radio to an economically viable broadcast station that is of global best practices which would be a choice station, competing with others in the FCT.
