Nigerians across all levels have been admonished to become totally remorseful in order to chart a new course for the country’s socio- economic development.
Former Director – General of the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, FRCN, Right Reverend George Bako gave the admonition when he received the Management team of Bond FM, led by the Director Lagos Operations,Mrs Bolanle Owoyemi, at his residence in lagos.
Reverend Bako said everyone must admit to be part of the impunity of corruption including the religious institutions.
He recommended a booklet and workshop to entrench a culture of responsibility in all public office holders.
Reverend Bako who was the Director General of FRCN when Bond FM was established, demanded a renewed commitment from the government to judiciously use the language station to disseminate its policies and programmes, with all the enablements for the workforce to excel.
Reverend Bako who will be eighty – five years old later this month, appreciated the visit of the management team of Bond FM, while promising to pursue equity and justice for all humanity while still alive.
In a remark, the Director Lagos Operations of FRCN, Mrs Bolanle Owoyemi expressed delight over the wellness of Reverend Bako and his immense contributions to the Broadcasting industry and overall nation building.
She asserted that Reverend Bako would be fondly remembered for establishing Bond FM among other language stations of FRCN and the visit was to get his evaluation of the station and recommendations ahead of its 35th year anniversary in September later this year.
Earlier, General Manager of Bond FM, Princess Adenike Adegoke, had commended Reverend Bako for the solid foundation he laid with establishment of Bond FM and why the visit was symbolic to herald the thirty fifth year anniversary of the station.
