Following Tuesday’s fire incident at the state owned radio station, Glory FM 97.1, the Bayelsa State Government has instituted a 3-man committee to unravel the cause of the disaster.
Inaugurating the committee in Yenagoa, the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said the committee’s findings will help to prevent future occurrence.
He said it is premature to speculate what may have led to the fire outbreak which destroyed the live studio, production/recording studio, accounts department and other vital offices.
The Commissioner who expressed confidence in members of the committee to deliver on the assignment, urged them not to be swayed by any commentary as that might preempt their work.
Iworiso-Markson informed that plans are underway to put in place a temporal measure to bring the station back on air by the weekend, pending the building of a brand new structure and facilities.
The committee headed by a senior director in the Ministry of Information and Orientation, Mr Marshall Edolo has two weeks to submit its report.
