The proposed Nigeria Police Broadcasting Service (NPBS) would hit the Air Waves nationwide beginning from November 28 2017 with a fund-raising ceremony at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, its Chairman/CEO, Ediri Jerry Wesley has said.

Speaking in an interview with journalists in Abuja, he commended the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris for working tirelessly despite his busy schedule to ensure the realisation of the project.

Wesley said, “The NPBS will focus on four areas of operations (TV, Radio, Online and Emergency Control Centre). The project which is a Public Private Partnership with the Nigeria Police will help to curb insecurity by prompt respond to emergency situations.

Unlike most broadcast organisations, the NPBS will not source for commercial adverts for sustainability, rather its survival will depend largely on sponsorship from corporate organisations and well-meaning Nigerians, Wesley said.

He also threw information on recruitment of personnel saying NPBS would poach professionals from world broadcast organisations including the Cable News Network (CNN).

“About 5,000 young Nigerians will be engaged and trained by 50 expatriate (Professionals from CNN, BBC and other foreign media Organisations) for three years”, Wesley stated.

In order to reach all Nigerians irrespective of their educational background, transmission will also be done in both Pidgin English and other Nigerian Languages, he said.
