Nigeria: AIT Begins Transmission in Bauchi

The Director of News, Africa Independent Television (AIT), Mr Adebayo Bodunri, said on Friday that the station had begun transmission in Bauchi.

Bodaunri said during a facility tour in Bauchi, that the station would provide 24-hour service to the people of the state, adding that local programmes in Housa and Fulfulde would be produced.
