In a bid to ensure accurate and precise account of activities of the Nigerian military, especially in its ongoing counter-insurgency operations in the North East, President Goodluck Jonathan, on Friday, inaugurated the first digital armed forces radio station in Abuja.
The radio station, with frequency 107.7FM, is planned to have transmitting sessions that will cover all military installations and the entire nation.
Speaking at the inauguration in Mogadishu Cantonment, Abuja, the President stressed the need for a platform through which the military could communicate their activities to the wider society, hence the establishment of the radio station.
Jonathan, who lauded the initiative, described how foreign media platforms had exaggerated in their reportage of happenings at the ongoing fight against the Boko Haram insurgents in the Northeast.
However, he urged the military to extend more loyalty and support to the incoming administration to ensure that lives and properties of Nigerians are adequately protected.
