She said the encoder was delivered by RCS, a satellite communication company based in Ghana, to enable the state-owned television to go on satellite.

Ibrahim said the Ministry’s Commissioner, Alhaji Lamin Mohammed while receiving the equipment from RCS Technical Manager, Mr Razak Musah, lauded the partnership between the state and the company.

The director noted that digitisation would enable the station to provide effective broadcast services to a larger audience in the state and beyond.

“ This is in line with Gov. Mai Mala Buni’s development plans especially in ensuring digitisation of media outlets in Yobe for the benefit of all and for the development of the state in general, ” she said.

Ibrahim said as soon as the encoder is installed, YTV programmes would be viewed on satellite as against the current analogue system.

She said Musah had assured the state that the equipment was in good condition and would enhance the services of the station.
