The Good Citizen Radio Show is one of the expressions of The Good Citizen initiative which is designed to encourage a unified and collective approach for solving national issues, stimulate community dialogue and discussions on good citizenship and recognise and reward outstanding efforts.
Launched 2015, in Abuja by Ms Yemisi Ransome Kuti, Professor Wale Omole, Chairman, CSR-in-Action Advocacy, and Chief Executive of CSR-in-Action, Bekeme Masade-Olowola, The Good Citizen has an overarching goal ofundertaking initiatives that encourage and advance individual contribution to national development through value reorientation, especially through the younger generations – our future leaders.
According to the management, The Good Citizen Reading Club and the Good Citizen Annual Awards and Recognition are other expressions of the Good Citizen initiative.
‘’The Good Citizen Radio Show will focus on value system reorientation and would be driven through citizen participation and solid multi-institutions partnerships in the areas of transparency and accountability, entrepreneurship/innovation, political awareness, environmental management, and unity. The radio show is targeted at children, adolescents and youths,’’ the management stated.
Its Chief Executive officer and co-anchor of the show, Bekeme Masade-Olowola, stated that in partnership with Inspiration FM, the radio show would hold every Friday on Inspiration FM Radio Station by 8:00 p.m. with the first episode airing on May 11, 2018.
She stated that it would be the opportunity to reach a young and wider demographic through the most popular medium, radio.
“This is a dream come true. I have always been passionate about this and believe in the power of person-bytes coming together to push for solutions. Good Citizenship is about living beyond oneself, knowing that every action or inaction impacts upon your neighbour and the nation.”
The CEO further stated that the show will be broken down into 3 major segments starting with street Vox Populi, intensive studio discussions addressing leadership, democracy and other aspects of citizenship such as gender equity, payment of taxes, waste management and other issues.
