NBC Threatens To Shut Down 45 TV/Radio Stations On Hate Speech

The Terrorist!

Published

on

The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has sanctioned 45 broadcast stations over alleged ethical infractions during the general election.

Hello!! Have you heard about the deadly virus called Coronavirus? No? See What It Is & How To Prevent It Here. Also Stay Connected & Get Latest Updates On Coronavirus Here. Please be safe! We LOVE You.


Speaking at a news conference in Abuja on Friday, Is’haq Kawu, director-general of the commission, said the affected media houses were fined N500,000 each for flouting the provisions of the Nigerian broadcasting code.

The director-general said the sanctioned stations cut across the country, which includes Channels Television, TVC, AIT and NTA.

He warned that any station that continue to broadcast hate and inciting comments that threaten the security of the country would be shut down.

“Despite our various interventions, at the end of the presidential election which was held on 23, Feb. 2019, 45 stations were found culpable of infractions on the provision of the Nigeria Broadcasting Code and have been sanction accordingly,” Kawu said.

“We gave them the highest level of sanction under the NBC which is to make them to pay N500,000 each and the cut across the entire country.

“NBC also sanction stations that allowed politicians to utter abusive, inciting and provocative statements during rallies.

“And this happened on several radios and television stations, particularly and unfortunately on the big nation network such as NTA, AIT, Channels, TVC News.

“There are also several radio and TV stations involved in this various infraction.

“Only recently Jay FM for instance in Jos, Plateau State was sanction for inciting broadcast by a preacher, who move away from religion into the arena of politics and was saying particularly inciting comments.”
Kawu maintained that the NBC had set up a national team to monitor stations on 24 hours basis as the country moves towards the governorship election.

And it appears the regulator has already got to work sanctioning errant stations as the popular JayFY in Jos was on Friday cut off air.

It is unclear however if the ultimate penalty has been meted out to stations in other parts of the country.
