“The Commission has taken the decision to curb the continued breach of the Electoral Act and the Broadcasting Code on Political Broadcast.

The NBC is particularly irked by the unauthorized declaration of results by the state Governor in the state broadcast station.

This is after he went in air to make malicious and unsubstantiated comments against INEC, the Police and the SSS.
The station will remain shut down until further notice.” (c) July 14, 2018
