The APC led government will commission the country’s re-branded national television next week. The new innovation will operate on 5,000 megawatts’ transmitter, as opposed to the current 2,500.
This initiative was made known to press men yesterday in the usual Thursdays’ government talk show at the Information Ministry by the Deputy Minister of that same ministry, Mohamed D. Koroma.
Though he could not disclose the exact day, he said government has been able to re-brand our national television through hard work, professionalism and commitment.
Hon. Mohamed Koroma blamed their predecessors for leaving the national TV station in the doldrums, though he failed to enumerate the problems left behind.
He happily told the gathering that Makeni city has been connected early this week but that Bo, Kenema and other areas of the country will soon join the rebranded national television.
As for arrangements regarding the commissioning of transmitter at Leicester Peak, Mr. Koroma said they are working in concert with the Sierra Leone Roads Authority (SLRA) to rehabilitate the highway leading to Leicester Peak so as to ensure guests are conveniently convened to the venue.
As part of a long term plan, he spoke of government’s intention to demarcate the entire Leicester Peak transmission area to ensure adequate security of the vicinity.
