The Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ Bauchi State Council, Comrade Umar Sa’idu has described the proliferation of private Radio stations in the country as a welcome development.

Comrade Umar Sa’idu stated this while interacting with journalists at a public lecture organised in commemoration of the fourth anniversary of Albarka Radio, held in Bauchi.

He argued that the country was lagging behind in terms of number of private media outfits when compared to other African countries like Ghana and South Africa who have relatively more.

The Chairman of the NUJ, said since its establishment as an Indeginous media outfit, Albarka Radio Bauchi has become a shining example for other citizens of the state to emulate.

Comrade Umar Sa’idu who acknowledged the numerous contributions rendered by the station in the broadcast industry, added that it had also reduced the number of unemployed graduates both within the state and the country at large.

While urging media practitioners to conduct themselves by the ethical standards of the profession, Comrade Sa’idu commended the state government for the provision of level playing ground for the private Radio stations to thrive.
