Yinka Ayefele, a Nigerian gospel singer, has inaugurated Fresh 106.9 FM, another radio station in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti state.
NAN reports that at the inauguration ceremony on Friday, the singer said the project was in fulfillment of his dream to contribute to the socio-economic development of the society through the media.
He added that the project is aimed to connect with the vision of the state government to woo investors and collaborate with the private sector to promote economic advancement.
In her remarks, Bisi Fayemi, wife of Ekiti governor, said the new radio station was a welcome development that came when the state government was making frantic efforts to attract more investments to the state.
According to her, media organisations in any clime are instruments for the advancement of good governance and democracy.
She said the new outfit will enhance greater awareness, cooperation and participation of the citizens in government activities and programmes.
The governor’s wife also commended the promoter of the new station for his vision in establishing the outfit in Ado-Ekiti, adding that democracy could only thrive with vibrant media and communication establishments.
The development comes about two years after the building of Fresh 105.9 FM, his radio station in Ibadan, Oyo state capital, was demolished, for allegedly contravening the state’s planning laws.
