Vox Populi

Do you need a political voice? No matter whether you are an ordinary citizen, development worker or politician, we can give you a voice for free. This is what you should do. :

Make a clear audio recording about a specific topic and send to Grassroots Radio. Recording must not exceed 15 minutes.

Citizens' Rostrum

Grassroots Radio aims to host discussions, opinions on matters of critical interest to Nigerians all over the world. One of the ways to this end is our citizen's advice program titled CITIZENS' ROSTRUM , a 30 minutes journal program and a sort of "Hyde Park Speakers Corner" which will run 4 times every day, seven days a week.
