In a bid to raise the reportage of the development sector within and outside Nigeria, Civil Society News Network, a production of Media Advocacy Promotion for Development Initiative, a media NGO based in Lagos is set to commence a 30-minute radio program starting from Tuesday 5th January 2016.
The program CSNews Weekly set out to fill the gap between development activities and it’s reportage will be aired on the the station of FRCN Radio One 103.5 fm, between 10.30 and 11am every Tuesday.
As contained in a statement released by the NGO, ‘lack of relevant information and communication medium in Africa has been the major lacuna that is not connecting the dot about activities of development sector in Africa with the entire universe, hence, the need for such program.’
The program is divided into 3 segment; SDGs On Air, a feature spot on Sustainable Development Goals, Notice Board which seeks to bring to listeners reports of recent events, activities and opportunities and Spotlight which focus on the profiling CSOs,NGOs and other corporate bodied in the development world.
