New transmission to Nigeria - Radio APC/Radio Chanji

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reportedly launched a new international radio station.

This may be in response to the dominance of the nation’s broadcasting airwaves by elements of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) which have been using the media to attack the APC. gathered that the new broadcast outfit, which broadcasts from undisclosed locations, has started broadcasting to Hausa-speaking people of Northern Nigeria with 500 kW transmitters on tes transmission from 7:00 to 7:30 am on 11720 kHz on the 25 meterband shortwave.

The sign-call of the radio is Radio APC, Radio Chanji which according to the party was established to contribute to the free exchange of information in the nation in order not to lose the information war which could change people’s minds and attitudes towards the party.

The broadcast which was received and monitored in Kano, Ibadan, Port Harcourt, Maiduguri, Adamawa, Birnin-Kebbi and Niamey, among other areas, started transmission over the weekend.

The programmes which were largely APC musicals in the Hausa language are in support of the party’s presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, the party’s Kaduna state governorship candidate, Malam Nasir el-Rufai, the Kano state governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the Sokoto state governor, Aliyu Wammako, and other party chieftains.

The unnamed female announcer said 24-hour transmission would soon begin to cover the pre-and postelection activities of the party, including phone-in programmes, on-the-spot assessments, and interviews with various strata of the party’s faithful (from via April 2015 Australian DX News via DXLD)
