Nigeria: NBC Cannot Guarantee Migration Of Digital Broadcast Signal

Reports from Nigeria are suggesting that the country might miss the 2017 set deadline for the switchover of broadcast signal from analogue to digital.

In a recent statement, Director-General of the National Broadcasting Commission of Nigeria (charged with regulating the broadcast and electronic media industry in the country) has said that while they (the NBC) are working towards ensuring that the switchover plan is on track, he cannot give definite assurances or guarantees.

Pointing to the ‘diverse and extensive geographical makeup' of the country as a challenge, he said his organisation is working closely with key stakeholders to make digitisation a reality accross Nigeria.
