A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant in Ekiti State, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, has raised the alarm over an alleged plot by some politicians to burn down his radio station, Voice 89.9 FM.
Adeyeye said the station’s General Manager, Mr. Donald Falayi, had been receiving anonymous calls and text messages from unknown persons on the plan to attack the station.
Adeyeye, a former Minister of State for Works, established the first private radio station in Ekiti State.
It began transmission in July.
The station has been making waves since it came on air with residents having the opportunity to air their views through phone calls in reaction to various stories in national dailies.
Addressing reporters yesterday after he was honoured with Outstanding Leadership Award by the national leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Adeyeye said the station was objective in its reportage of events.
The PDP chieftain said the station’s management enjoyed free hands in determining the news content.
He said: “Voice FM is the voice of all Ekiti people, irrespective of their affiliations.”
