The Nnamdi Azikiwe University community based radio station, Unizik 94.1fm, celebrated her 10th anniversary on Friday, April 20, in grand style.
The station celebrated 10 years of mind blowing achievements both in entertainment and human development over the past decade.
The station manager, Mrs Ify Obi was full of praises to all that had helped her and her team achieve this. Prof. Chinyere stella Okunna, Prof. Omenugha, Dr. Uche Ebeze (Head of Department, Mass communication) and Prof. Ahaneku (Vice Chancellor of the institution) were among personalities that graced the occasion.
Former governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi who was also at the occasion, described Nigerian youth as hardworking and one of the best in the world.
Obi who was apparently reacting to the recent comments credited to President Muhammadu Buhari that Nigerian youths were lazy, uneducated and always wanting free oil money, said the average youth in the country is not lazy.
Speaking during the 10th Anniversary celebration of Nnamdi Azikiwe radio station named UNIZIK 94.1FM, the former governor regreted that the performance of the youths were impeded by misrule of past governments. He dismissed the impression of scarcity of jobs as those of the defeatists, saying the first job before the youths was voting out bad governance. “Unemployment is as a result of accumulated bad leadership. There are jobs out there for you and the first job is to ensure good governance. That you can achieve by voicing out your opinion on national issues and questioning what is happening,” he said.
He regretted the accumulated debt being owed by the country which he put to the tune of $70billion, saying that Nigeria would be in a risk situation by 2025 if the ugly trend persisted. “It is unfortunate that a nation like China which was at bar with Nigeria, has so much outgrown her with GDP rising from $10.5billion to $3trillion.
