The All Progressive Congress party has launched Radio Chanji, a new international radio station for the Hausa-speaking people of Northern Nigeria. It has powerful 500kw transmitters on test transmission from 7:00am-7:30am on 11720khz on the 25 meter band shortwave.
The station which was created in support of the APC Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, Kaduna state governorship candidate, Nasir el-Rufai, and other party chieftains will for the main time broadcast APC musicals in Hausa language.
The transmission started over the weekend and it was received and monitored in Kano, Adamawa Ibadan, Maiduguru, Port Harcourt, Birnin-Kebbi, Niamey, to mention a few.
The station will soon commence a 24-hour transmission to cover pre and post-election activities of the party, phone-in programmes, interviews and many more.
