Ilaji Resort, an Ibadan-based conglomerate in the hospitality sector, has launched a new radio station, in line with its commitment towards promoting Nigerian morals and core values, while entertaining the general public.
The newly licensed radio station, Ilaji 91.9 FM, Ibadan, has started a 24-hour broadcast test running.
The exercise, which has been on for many days according to the owner, Engr. Dotun Sanusi, is in preparation for full broadcast to the people of Ibadan and its environs.
Located in Akanran, the home of Ilaji hotels and sports resorts, Oloyo Village, Akanran, Oyo state the radio station which is under the Ilaji broadcasting limited, is going to attract top broadcasters from within and outside the state.
In a chat with Newsmen, the Ibadan-born industrialist explained that his joy is in giving back to society and creating employment.
According to him, “Ilaji 91.9 FM, Ibadan is one of those things in my plan. I am grateful if has come to fruition. We have other plans. This one now, we have begun test transmission 24 hours per day. Few radio stations do that. We are in the process of recruitment. It may not be easy but is gives me joy employing people. This is because the salary paid will go a long way in taking care of people, especially family and dependants. I can assure that this radio has come to stay. Though we have not come to compete, but we will strive to be the darling of the radio listeners”.
Sanusi, who is the Otun Apesinola of Ibadan, in his bid to further develop Ibadan, had established Ilaji Hotels and Games Resort almost a decade ago.
This was just as he had established International College of Arts, Science and Technology, Elebu. He also owns football clubs affiliated with clubs in Europe.
