‘Know your constitution’ debuts on Unilag FM

A radio programme called Know your constitution has been designed on UNILAG 103.1 FM in Nigeria to address perceived ignorance of the law, which especially lead to infringement of right.
The programme will take testimonies from affected persons, test people in the street on their fundamental rights awareness, and bring legal practitioners to educate, inform and enlighten listeners on how to enforce their constitutional rights. Adeola Austin Oyinlade, a radio personality, researcher and law student of the university, has been chosen as anchor of the programme. He once received a letter of commendation and appreciation from the United Nations for his ‘interest and support of the organisation’, when he sent an article to UN Secretary General, Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, on Millennium Development Goals Obstacles and ways of tackling them. Recently he worked on another paper sent to United Nations titled Contribution of Higher Institutions to achieving Millennium Development Goals. On Oyinlade’s choice to anchor “Know Your Constitution”, the producer, Thomas Eugeni said, “Adeola has written numerous articles in contribution towards national and international issues such as good governance, economic and social development, peace and security, human rights, democracy and the rule of law, which have been published in both local magazines and national daily newspapers. He has interviewed former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Muhammadu Lawal Uwais, Justice Kayode Eso, and Festus Keyamo among other personalities in the legal profession. The programme is live on UNILAG 103.1 FM (the first university radio station in Nigeria) and will be on, on Thursdays, 10am. Anyone whose fundamental rights have been infringed upon and wants to share it can email; such person’s identity would be protected.
