NBC Fine Against Channels Is Draconian

Press Statement

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) describes the reported suspension and fine of N5m slammed by the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) on Channels Television over alleged violation of broadcasting code, as draconian.

The PDP stresses that, without prejudice to the issues raised against Channels Television, the reported hasty clamp down, without the benefit of caution, is suggestive of intolerance and high-handedness by the regulatory body.

Our party is worried that such disposition could be counter-productive and heighten the already tensed situation in our nation at this critical time.

The PDP therefore urges the NBC to review the punitive measure on the media house as well as scale up system-friendly measure that will ensure best practices in information dissemination in our country.

Kola Ologbondiyan
