IDC Uncovers Plot to Suffocate Reality Radio-Vision Station, Calls for Supports

IDC uncovers plot to suffocate Reality Radio-Vision Station, calls for concerted efforts to save the station.

Iwoland Development Coalition (IDC) is worried at report of underground plot to put Reality Radio-Vision station in comatose, saying that information at its disposal pointed to an uncertain future for the public media outfit.

Reality Radio-Vision station, otherwise known as RRS, is situated in Iwoland, but activities at the station have remained largely ineffectual as Osun government has given little or no attention to it.

On Sunday, the coordinator of IDC, Mr Kabiru Adisa, said in a statement that the station is on the verge of total collapse as the group is in possession of information on moves to force the shutdown of RRS.

According to him, the plot which has already been set in motion, but strategically implemented to avoid public attention, have seen staff transfered out of RRS without replacement– a development he said would leaves the station closed when there is no more staff there.

“From the information available to IDC, staff of RRS are being moved to other stations and once there is no one left there, the government will have justification to shutdown the station,” Mr Adisa said.

He said the information is unsettling and wonder why “Iwoland should always be stripped of any ambience of government presence. The other time, it was OSSADEP, which now nothing but a shadow of its former self as most activities of the agency has moved elsewhere.”

“Now, we are facing similar situation with RRS. That is more reason why we are disturbed,” he said.

IDC expressed understanding on the financial situation of Osun state which may have necessitated cost saving measures “but we don’t understand why Iwoland will be the sacrificial lamb when it was obvious to everyone that we’re the most marginalized people in the state.”

Mr Adisa rallied Iwoland indigenes to rise up in saving RRS from being driven under the ground, calling on Governor Gboyega Oyetola and his advisers to reconsider options on the station “and if the state could no longer manage RRS, they should consider bringing private investors to take over the station.”
