The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) on Friday said it has revoked the broadcast licences of Silverbird TV, AIT, Raypower FM, and Rhythm FM amongst others, Channels reports.


The Director-General of the NBC, Mallam Balarabe Shehu, who made the disclosure on Friday, said the development followed the failure of the media houses to renew their broadcast licences.


According to the NBC, all the television and radio stations affected must halt operations in the next 24 hours.

 

He noted that the stations owe a total of N2.6bn; adding that some of the stations affected have not renewed their licences since 2015.

 

 “This is the first batch, there are those who have not renewed their licence since 2015, 2016 and 2017. We are asking them to come and pay their licence fees,” he said.

 

He warned that all stations that have not renewed their licences should do so in 30 days to avoid sanction.

 

Details shortly…
