The National Youth Service Corps is set to secure an operational licence for its proposed N 50m radio station .
The NYSC Director General , Brig . Gen . Shuaibu Ibrahim , said this on Wednesday in Abuja .
Ibrahim , who spoke at the NYSC Press and Public Relations Officers’ workshop , said the corps ’ officials needed to monitor social media regularly and be prompt in debunking fake news.
The DG said , “ While I urge you to deepen and sustain the scheme’ s presence in social media, you must be vigilant by continuously sensitising corps members to the need to avoid inappropriate use of the new media.
“ You must be proactive through constant engagements and timely disclosure of necessary information on the activities of the scheme as they unfold.
“ Efforts to establish the NYSC Community Radio have moved into top gear as approval of the operational licence is being awaited . We expect a boost in the scheme’ s publicity drive when the station eventually comes on stream. ”
