Reason Nigerian Govt Revoked Licences Of AIT, Silverbird, 50 Other Broadcast Stations

The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has explained why it revoked the licences of African Independent Television (AIT), Silverbird Television and 50 other broadcast stations across the country. ICIR reports.

 

General Balarabe Shehu, the NBC Director General made the announcement in a statement on Friday, said it was due to the failure of the affected stations to renew their broadcast licences amounting to N2.66 billion. Information Guide Nigeria

According to the Commission, a two-week waiver was given to them in May to do so after which they risked the revocation of their licences.

But three months after the publication, the NBC said some licensees are yet to pay their outstanding debts, in contravention of the National Broadcasting Commission Act CAP N11, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004, particularly Section 10(a) of the Third Schedule of the Act. jamb results

“Therefore, after due consideration, NBC hereby announces the revocation of the licenses of the stations and gives them 24 hours to shut down their operations. Our offices nationwide are hereby directed to collaborate with security agencies to ensure immediate compliance,” the statement said.

The broadcast regulator said the continued operation of the “debtor stations is illegal and constitutes a threat to national security”.

It called on other broadcast stations yet to renew their licences for the present duration to do so within the next 30 days or risk punishment.

The NBC said Friday’s list is the first batch of offenders, adding that a second batch will soon be released.

“The Commission also calls on all IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) and all other broadcast stations that are streaming online to register with the Commission to avoid disconnection.

“Broadcasters should note that having a DTT or FM license does not warrant a broadcaster to stream online; they are two different licences,” the statement added.

The Broadcasting Organisation of Nigeria (BON) has said it would work with stakeholders to resolve the matter.
