FRCN Shut Down

Radio Federal Atlantic 104.5 FM under the Federal Radio Cooperation of Nigeria(FRCN)Uruan, Akwa Ibom on Thursday was shut down by artists on its payroll over accumulated salaries.

The protesters carried placards with inscriptions: “The artists of Atlantic 104.5 FM want the release of our February 2016 to January 2017 salary, Else there will be no broadcast’’, “Pay us our 11 months’ salary, we are very hungry’’.

Other inscriptions include: “We the artists of Atlantic 104.5 FM want our 11 months’ salary. Else no work, enough is enough,’’, “We have been patient enough; pay us 11 months’ salary now’’.

It was reliably gathered that the Radio Station office was under lock and keys.

Mr Asuquo Ekpo, the spokesman of the protesters lamented that the station was unfair and treated them poorly for no just reason.

“How can we be working for 11 months without paying us salary; we have waited patiently enough and that is why we have decided to shut down the station.”

“We are calling for the removal of the Zonal Director of the station because artists in Port Harcourt had been paid and we don’t know why we have not been paid until now’’ Ekpo said.
