The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has threatened to shut down any broadcast stations airing programmes capable of undermining peaceful co-existence in Nigeria.
Its Spokesman, Mr Ekanem Antia, stated in Abuja on Friday that NBC’s Director-General, Malam Balarabe Ilelah, gave the avowal at a meeting with broadcast stations on the coverage of the Feb. 25 presidential and National Assembly elections.
“The NBC is giving its last warning to broadcast stations and will not hesitate to shut or revoke the licence of any when convinced that its activities are capable of undermining the peaceful co-existence of the country.
“Any further breaches of the Nigeria Broadcasting Code and Act will no longer be tolerated,’’ he warned.
