Why we shut down AIT, Beat FM, 50 other Radio and TV stations – NBC

 

The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has disclosed reasons for revoking the licences of Silverbird Television, African Independent Television (AIT), Beat FM (Megalectrics LTD) Lagos and several other broadcast stations across the nation.

According to the NBC Director General, Balarabe Shehu, the affected stations were shut down for not renewing their broadcast licences and for having outstanding debts, expressing that operation of the “debtor stations is illegal and constitutes a threat to national security”.

Shehu in a statement on Friday stated that the affected stations were given two-week waiver May to renew their licenses but they refuse to heed to the warnings.

The statement partly reads, “Therefore, after due consideration, NBC hereby announces the revocation of the licenses of the stations and gives them 24 hours to shut down their operations. Our offices nationwide are hereby directed to collaborate with security agencies to ensure immediate compliance.

“The Commission also calls on all IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) and all other broadcast stations that are streaming online to register with the Commission to avoid disconnection.

“Broadcasters should note that having a DTT or FM license does not warrant a broadcaster to stream online; they are two different licences.”
