History of Lavun Community Radio

In 2006, the World Bank Country office in Abuja-Nigeria established Community Radio Stations in partnership with the Second National Fadama Development Project. The States selected were Niger, Ogun and Federal Capital Territory (FCT). The arrangement for the establishment of Community Radio Station was tripartite with the World Bank providing the Radio equipment, the community is to provide the housing, while the State Fadama Development Office is to provide the logistics.

Community Radio is a form of Radio Broadcasting controlled by a particular community and association, trusted or foundation with no profit making as its objectives. In rear cases it is being controlled by Non-governmental, Political and Religious organisations or Agencies.

As a result of feasibility study undertaken, Kutigi, the headquarters of Lavun LGA was selected for the establishment of the Community Radio in respect of Niger State.


The aims and objectives of the Station are:

  • To create awareness on agricultural, health and socio-cultural programmes.
