The founder and chairman, Board of Trustees of SOBI 101.9FM, Mallam Lukman Mustapha has called on the newly appointed General Manager of Radio Kwara, Mr. Kayode Aremu to take to his new assignment the “unmatched winning spirit” of the station. Aremu had, until few days ago, worked as Head of Station of SOBI FM.
Mustapha, also known as the Rebirth Captain, expressed delight with the appointment of his former employee to manage the state-owned radio station; stressing that his vision for SOBI FM was to serve as a training ground for nurturing high fliers in the broadcast industry.
A part of the release made available to newsmen by the Rebirth Media Team in Ilorin today reads, “One of the founding vision behind the setting up of SOBI 101.9FM is to, among others things, pick enthusiastic and young people willing to make a name out of broadcasting, give them the platform to excel and then unleash them on the broadcasting world to go make the pace wherever they find themselves in the Industry.
“Although, Kayode Aremu was already a well traveled broadcaster before he joined us, he already left the field for the corporate world, until we brought him back, appointed him as our news consultant before promoting him to our Head of station, a position he held before his resignation few days ago.
“SOBI FM former staffs are making waves and dictating the pace in the industry across the Country, yet we’ve been able to ensure regardless of who leaves, the SOBI FM brand continues to wax stronger.”
