LASG Floats Community Themed TV Platform



Few days after the Lagos State Government announced plans to launch radio platforms across the 20 Local Government areas in the state, the government through the Ministry of Local Government and Community Affairs has concluded plans to float a community theme television programme.
Eyes Of Lagos gathered that the programme tagged ‘Lagos Community Updates’ will air live for the first time on Monday, July 17, 2017, by 7:00 pm on Lagos Television (LTV 8).
Confirming this to Eyes Of Lagos, the Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Communities & Communications, Hon. Kehinde Bamigbetan, said the programme was birthed out of the need to provide a platform for communities and stakeholders to tell their own stories.
“The programme is meant to project what communities are doing for themselves without waiting for the government. It will basically involving major stakeholders, residents, communities development association heads, and other relevant agencies telling their own stories without interference from the government in the state,” Hon. Kehinde Bamigbetan.
“It will also help government to know the extent of community awareness in programmes and policies meant for the citizens,” he added.
Eyes Of Lagos  can reliably report that the programme will air between 7:00 and 8:00 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on Lagos Television (LTV 8).
Recall that news surfaced across media platforms last week that the Lagos State Government (LASG) has concluded plans to launch radio stations operating in local government secretariats in 20 LGAs in the state.
