“Today, as a Senior Lecturer in the Mass Communication Department myself, I acknowledge the incredible efforts the current Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Bilbis, has put in during his tenure to make the dream of the Campus Radio a reality, ” he said.

This, he said, was for “the sole purpose of training our Mass Communication students to become world class.”

Recalling how the institution got accreditation for mass communication, Bako noted the roles he and the former Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Risqua Shehu, played.
