ABEOKUTA - A BBC Radio Journalist and alumnus of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, Ogun state, Otunba Macjob Gbolahan has donated radio station equipments for the setting up of MAPOLY radio. 

At the official presentation of the equipments to the Polytechnic on Friday, Macjob said the multimedia equipments would expose the students to the current trend in broadcast journalism.

He said the radio station would become voice for the Ojere community as many conventional media stations are giving less coverage for the rural communities in Nigeria. 

He noted that the broadcast industry is being taking over by non-professionals, saying the establishment of the radio station would allow the students to be equipped with the best practical knowledge. 

"We want to make sure that MAPOLY Students are the best in the broadcast industry because charlatans are taking over the industry. We have the best grooming in MAPOLY Mass Communication despite the little resources. 

"MAPOLY has always been the best training ground for journalists in Nigeria and we must build on that momentum. 

"You cannot study broadcasting in this age, without having a practical knowledge, so the equipment became necessary to expose the students to new trend in broadcast industry."

Receiving the equipments, the acting Rector of MAPOLY, Dr. Adeoye Odedeji commended the donor for for giving back to the Alma mata, calling on other stakeholders to take cue. 

Dr. Odedeji maintained government cannot meet the yearnings and aspirations of the students, urging other alumni to take up responsibility in the teaching process of learning. 

"We are indeed thankful for the services rendered. You have practically saved us from the challenges of putting up a radio station to train our students. 

"It is not possible for government to provide everything for the yearnings and aspiration of the students. I hereby call on individuals and corporate bodies to contribute in the part of teaching process of learning. 

"MAPOLY has become better, stronger and more reliable. We have better lecturers critical to Mass Communication practice in Nigeria."

The donated items include; 3 headphones, one multimedia audio mixer, one laptop, 3 microphones and 2 microphone stand.
