The President of NUF, Mr Augustine Chukwudum, made the call in a statement in Enugu on Tuesday.

According to Chukwudum, this is because millions of Igbos are living in all parts of the country even in the most remote villages, Igbos are living there.

“That is why it is very important that the Federal Government must set up Igbo radio.

“It will go a long way in uniting this country as well as increasing the education and awareness levels of these traders because Igbo’s are progressive in nature.

“We know very well that anywhere Igbo’s go they help in developing the area without government’s assistance,’’ he said.

Chukwudum noted that some groups had been making erroneous statements concerning radio stations meant to promote education and enlightenment in indigenous languages.

He added that such statements were very unfair.
