NIGERIA – “Get It Together” Radio Programs Return:
Weekly programme to air in Kaduna, Lagos and Oyo States
Abuja — We are back with a brand new season of the “Get It Together” radio programs Se’rigbo in Lagos, Ireti Eda in Oyo, and Komai Nisan Jifa in Kaduna starting the week of February 12th, 2018.
The radio programmes are part of the Get it Together campaign of the Nigerian Urban Reproductive Health Initiative 2 (NURHI 2) which encourages all Nigerians to KNOW the facts about child/pregnant spacing, TALK to their partner, and GO for child/pregnancy spacing services.
In the episodes of these popular radio programmes — Se’rigbo in Lagos, Ireti Eda in Oyo, and Komai Nisan Jifa in Kaduna — audiences follow the lives of characters and their interesting journeys through everyday life in Nigeria.
The shows also give listeners the opportunity to call-in and speak directly with experts, who will answer their questions live on-air. Listeners also have a chance to win weekly prizes of N1,000 recharge cards.
Speakiing about the programs, Dr. Mojisola Odeku, NURHI 2 Project Director said, “Listeners are hooked on the programmes’ serial dramas and real stories. Fans calling-in to the program to have their questions answered by family planning experts is one of the more popular features.”

About the Nigerian Urban Reproductive Health Initiative 2 (NURHI 2)
The NURHI 2 project uses communication to increase demand for child/pregnancy spacing among men and women. It is led by the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) in partnership with the Center for Communication Programs Nigeria (CCPN).
The Get It Together radio programmes build on the success of the previous seasons and the campaign’s 2016 hit song “Get It Together,” featuring Paul ‘P Square’ Okoye and Tiwa Savage.
NURHI 2 has also helped establish a network of trained health providers offering friendly and confidential services. NURHI 2 locations can be recognized by the blue, yellow and orange puzzle piece logo with signs that say ‘FP services available here” and the National Child/Pregnancy spacing ‘Green Dot logo’.
