Therefore, in line with the social responsibility of the media, the catchment of our University can rely on UNIOSUN FM as a tool to access vital information about the activities of the University and well-thought-out opinions about practices and actions that are capable of engendering sustainable development in Osun State and our neighbouring towns and cities.”
