Exclusive: NBC Will Not Be Revoking Broadcasting Licences - After All!
Sources from inside the Nigerian Broadcasting space have told Broadcast Media Africa that the National Broadcasting Commission of Nigeria (NBC) may have decided not to revoke the licences of 'errant' broadcasting stations after all.
This decision was apparently reached following a number of 'high-powered' meetings with major industry stakeholders, as well as crucial interventions by 'powerful' interests. The consensus was that the NBC should enter into discussions with the organisations concerned and agree on a plan that would help regularise their situation.
Official statement from the NBC to be expected shortly.
