Although Kwankwaso claimed that the media in Nigeria was yet to fulfil its role of promoting healthy competition among oppositions, he was confident that the birth of Nasara FM would bridge the wide gape that exist between the voice and the voiceless.
Besides the promotion of various political interest, Kwankwaso disclosed the radio station will focus on the plight of common man at the grassroots.
“The success of Nasara remains our model contribution to help the society. The new radio will help promote education in all aspects of human life.
“After over two decades of proliferation of media outfits in country, the media is yet to fulfil it role in promoting healthy competition among oppositions. Nasara Radio is here to give people right to voice and exchange ideals,” Kwankwaso said.
