1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

 

As the world grows everyday in technology, the need for development becomes a necessity. There is virtually no field in Nigeria that does not need information technology be it agricultural research section, be it medicine and surgery, be it business management, entrepreneurs or engineering. For any organization to function very well the need for information technology have a great role to play for the success of that organization. Organization with poor information exchange rate tends to perform poorly where there is competition. From the above findings and discussion we found out that information is very useful in the society today.

Consequently, a society that has poor communication and information infrastructure perpetually lags behind others that have efficient information infrastructure (Moemeka, 1985).

In the rural area, information technology plays a vital role in the development of the society.

The rural radio also plays a very important role in the development of the rural areas in Nigeria. The use of rural radio plays a huge role in disseminating of information round the community.

As issues of development are aired to audience in the form of various programs and individuals are exposed to happenings in and around their society, through listening to these programs. Communication serves as the basic element of interaction and information sharing in life. Communication creates pool of ideas, strengthens the feeling of togetherness, through the exchange of messages and translates through thoughts, into actions.

Radio communication educates citizens on new issues inherent in the society. For example, issues on politics, business, current affairs, etc, are aired to create awareness. Radio serves as an agent of social mobilization; people are moved to delivering a certain goal, based on their awareness of their rights and responsibility to the society. Thus, this paper examines the place of radio in rural development in Bokko Local government area of Plateau State.

 

1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

In developing economies like Nigeria, majority of the citizens live in the rural areas where agrarian culture constitutes the major micro economic activity. As a result, most development oriented agenda are focused on such areas. One of such development agenda is the use of the radio and a local dialect medium to disseminate relevant information that will improve life style and integrate the people for productive enterprise. Where such information gap exists it has led to failure and non-realization of development objectives and lack of social integration which may culminate in increase in social vices. Unarguably, the mass media are tools for information dissemination and mass education of the people for social transformation of the society because they have the power for promoting social cohesion and integration of the component units of a nation. Therefore, they are critical to national cohesion and development aspirations especially where language differences hold sway. Previous literature show that, in a decent and healthy democracy, mass media are regarded as the purveyors of public messages to the heterogeneous and scattered audiences through the channels of radio, television, newspapers, magazines, internet among others. Among the mass media genre, the radio is the most acclaimed partner in progress where developing objectives are concerned. This is especially so due to radio’s pervasiveness and use of indigenous language in the dissemination of anticipated behaviour change messages. The above notion about the radio has stimulated various scholarly debates addressing the role of radio in achieving development but such efforts have largely ignored empirical examination of how local dialect programmes contribute to rural development and social integration. This has resulted in the dearth of literature in Nigeria, on the role of local dialect programme in rural development and social integration. Against this backdrop, this paper examines the influence of the Bokkos radio programme on rural development and social integration among the Bokkos people of Plateau State, Nigeria.
