     The history of campus broadcasting in Nigeria dates back to 1982. It was reported that an erudite professor of Mass communication Prof. Ralph .A. Akinfeleye called for the establishment of an educational radio station for the University of Lagos.
   
     The then head of department of Mass communication, University of Lagos, Professor Alfred Opubor took up the challenge and wrote to the federal ministry of information and communication for a radio license.
   
     The University of Lagos did not get a Radio License until the eventual Media Deregulation Policy of 1992. They eventually were issued the  License in February 2002, twenty years after the University had applied for one. They were assigned the frequency 103.1FM in July 2003 and the station was officially commissioned on the 14th of December, 2004 by former Vice President of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

     Unilag Radio is therefore the First Campus station to receive a license and the first campus station to go on air in 2004.
And, based on Unilag Radio's credible performance, the stage was set for other campus stations to receive their licenses.

      The National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC), the body that regulates the broadcast industry in Nigeria, stipulates that among other things, campus stations should be the broadcast laboratory for students of mass communication - in FUTO's case Information management technology students - that they must remain professional and educational, and adhere strictly to the objectives for which they are licensed.

      I feel this great school, one of the oldest schools of technology in the country should be among the elites in radio broadcasting. Most Universities of technology have their own transmitters which they use in broadcasting. This would not only help the school in the way of revenue, it will help train and expose those students with passion for the media.
 
     Below, I have listed out some schools with their frequency modulation (FM) bands.

100.7    UNIUYO FM (University of  Uyo), Akwa-Ibom State.
93.3     Madonna Radio (Madonna University) FM, Okija, Anambra State.
94.1     Unizik (Nnamdi Azikiwe University) FM, Awka, Anambra State.
90.5    Okada Wonderland FM, (Igbinedion University Radio), Okada, Edo State.
100.1  Uniben FM (University of Benin Radio), Benin City, Edo State.
91.1    Lion FM, (University of Nigeria), Nsukka, Enugu State.
98.9   BUK FM Kano (Bayero University) Kano State.
89.3   Unilorin FM (University of Ilorin), Kwara State.
95.7   LASU Radio (Lagos State University, Ojo, Lagos)
103.1  Unilag FM (University of Lagos), Lagos state.
101.1  Nasarawa State University FM, Lafia
92.3  Search FM, Minna (Federal University of Technology, Minna), Niger State.
101.1  Diamond FM, University of Ibadan, Oyo State.
96.1  ICEFMUJ (University of Jos) Plateau State.
88.5  Unique FM (University of  Port Harcourt), Rivers State.

     I pray and hope this issue gets to the current VC and his administration and that they do something about it.
