Thursday, Jan 1st, 2018 – The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) announced the launch of the Hausa Radio Service by members of the community. The announcement was made through a statement by Emma Powerful, speaking as the spokesperson for the community.
In part, the statement reads, “In keeping with our promise to facilitate the creation of an unbiased informative platform to take the message of liberation to the down trodden and oppressed indigenous populations of Norther Nigeria, we, the family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide and it’s indomitable leadership, wish to happily announce the official launch of the much anticipated IPOB sponsored Radio Nigeria Hausa Service.
The broadcast will have the widest coverage of any radio signal in Africa. It will be received all over West, East, and Southern Africa. Every Hausa speaking community in Africa will be able to receive it.
In our opinion, we feel it has become imperative to educate the poor masses of Northern Nigeria. The ruling class cleverly enslaved and impoverished ethnic populations of the North by keeping vital information and knowledge away from them.
This information deficit is what Radio Nigeria Hausa Service has come to remedy. All the hitherto hidden history of the conquest of indigenous Hausa speaking populations of the North will be laid bare for the world to know.
More importantly, enslaved minorities of Arewa North, brutally savaged by Fulani terrorist herdsmen, through this unbiased platform, will acquire the necessary education needed to liberate them from the suffocating stranglehold of the caliphate born to rule class.”
The maiden daily broadcast by Hausa Radio Service will hit Nigerian airwaves starting this Saturday, January 6th, 2018 at 7 PM local time. Listeners can tune in at Short Wave 15110 KHz 19 Meter Band.
