Federal government approves UNILAG TV license

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday approved a television licence for the University of Lagos (UNILAG TV).

This was disclosed after a meeting with the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, and the Senior Special Assistant, Garba Shehu, at the Presidential Villa.

Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, said the approval of the TV station was a confirmation of the president’s position on promoting free press and unhindered access to information.

Ogundipe said the TV station would enhance research-oriented education and ease communication within and outside the university campus.

“It is now on record that the present administration signed the first campus TV licence and we remain deeply grateful to the president.

“The university is a brand. We want the university to be the research hub in Africa, and we are working towards being among the best three in the entire continent,’’ he said.

Adesina, while congratulating the vice chancellor on the new development, said President Buhari was fully committed to improving the standard of education in the country.
