The National Broadcast Commission, NBC says it will not hesitate to wield the big stick in the events that any broadcast news organization breaches its guidelines.
The Director General of the NBC, Dr Isha’q Kawu, who spoke to news men in Abuja on Wednesday said it was discovered during its second quarter monitoring of broadcast stations, that there has been a continuous rise in breaches related to hateful, abusive, and incisive reporting among certain stations, especially in political broadcasting.
Isha’q dislosed further, that DAAR communications, parent company of African Independent Television, AIT and Ray Power Fm, have once again been caught in murky waters for breaching the broadcast code.
He added, despite calling the attention of the management of DAAR to its flagrant breach of the broadcasting code in several of its programs and content, the organization continued to do so. Therefore the Commission will be left with no other alternative than to once again sanction DAAR communications for its refusal to abide by the rules.
Recall that the licence of DAAR Communications was suspended sometime in June 2019 for same offence.
