Ebonyi unveiled its first private radio station, Legacy 95.1 FM, located in Abakaliki. The station is owned by Sen. Obinna Ogba, a former senator representing the Ebonyi Central district.
During the inauguration ceremony, Governor Francis Nwifuru emphasized that the Ebonyi government would consistently provide a conducive environment for the growth of private enterprises. He extended an invitation to affluent individuals and investors to capitalize on the state’s favourable economic policies to make investments in Ebonyi.
Nwifuru assured that the government would actively safeguard and secure the business landscape within the state. He expressed gratitude to Ogba for his vision and proactive approach, promising that the government would facilitate the provision of electricity and a connecting road to link the station with the broader Abakaliki area.
Nwifuru pointed out, “Despite there being several senators who amassed more wealth than Ogba, few of them have made substantial contributions to Ebonyi, let alone considering investing here. Ogba’s dedication to Ebonyi and his significant investments, particularly in Izzi, bring me great satisfaction. I encourage both Ebonyi residents and others who are philanthropic and prosperous to join in the development of our state.”
The governor encouraged the station to adhere to the code of conduct established by the National Broadcasting Commission. He urged the station to broadcast programs that foster harmony, advancement, and unity, while cautioning against disseminating false information.
Ogba, in his earlier remarks, revealed that his motivation for establishing the radio station stemmed from his desire to create employment opportunities and provide a media platform for the people of Ebonyi to express their viewpoints on various matters.
He noted, “I recognized the need to establish this private broadcasting station because Ebonyi residents previously had to travel to Enugu to have their voices heard, usually through private radio stations.”
