The lackluster performance of the radio and television stations came on Sunday, when Governor Segun Oni was practically deprived of appearing on the Stations for its monthly media chat called "Governor's Explain", generating set supplying electricity packed up few minutes before the commencement of the programme
To anomaly, the state government had procured digital transposers and transmitters, as well as a modern Outside Broadcast Van to make the broadcasting outfit responsive to its statutory duties of information dissemination to the people of the State.
Briefing newsmen on the new development yesterday during the facilities tour of the Station, Olatunbosun expressed displeasure over Gov Oni's inability to appear on the station on Sunday.
On the rumoured take over of the station by contractors for effective management, the Commissioner dispelled the rumour, clarifying that the experts that were consulted on how the station could move forward stressing that their roles were advisory.
