THE URHOBO NATION

The Urhobo people occupy the Delta Central Senatorial District of Delta State. They are the largest of the nine ethnic groups in Delta State, Nigeria. The Urhobo group is classified as among the first ten major ethnic groups in Nigeria (Ukeje 1966; Awolowo 1968; Otite 1982). The Urhobo neighbours to the North are Benin’s; to the North-East are the Ukwanis; the Isoko people borders the Urhobo to the East and the South-East; and, the Ijaws and the Itsekiris lay on the South and the West respectively.

The Urhobo people occupy both the vast Niger Delta plains and the swampy areas of the mouth of the River Niger, the various rivers and tributaries where the great River Niger enters into the Atlantic Ocean. While the vast plain is dominated by evergreen forest and lush vegetation, the swampy area is filled with mangrove forest and creeks and streams watered by the tributaries of the River Niger. The Urhobo people have a complex and difficult to situate tradition of origin.

URHOBO TELEVISION

Urhobo Television: An Idea whose Time has Come The Birth of the Urhobo Television, courtesy of the Urhobo Broadcasting Network Limited has broadened the media horizon for the Urhobo nation towards resolving the question of self-determination.
The west-dominated mass media, which is loaded with foreign content, had been a means of critical acculturation for import of Western Cultures and values, which have dominated the socio-political consciousness amongst our people.

There had been serious threats to the Urhobo national life and culture by foreign cultural values through manipulation of the local media so much so that our media has not been people-oriented but rather government dominated without integrating traditional folk media into the modern mass media technology. Urhobo Television does not belong to the promoters but all Urhobo people worldwide. Our traditional music, movies, cultural attributes, news and current affairs will now find  through this effort.
