However, an in-depth research reveals that within Bayelsa state media there is an intensive use of amplitude modulation and frequency modulation station of Bayelsa state broadcasting service to create awareness numerable opportunities available to them. They still flourish in the previous delusion and dogmatic belief that cannot contemporaries in the urban setting.
