List of Stations Affected by NBC license Revocation (News Central TV)

Silverbird TV, AIT, Raypower FM, and Rhythm FM, among others, have had their broadcast licenses cancelled by the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, for failing to renew them for a total of N2.66 billion.

According to a statement released by NBC on Friday, the action came after a list of stations that had not yet renewed their licenses was made public. The Commission said that they were given a two-week waiver in May to do this, after which they ran the possibility of having their broadcast licenses revoked.

However, NBC reported that three months after the article was published, “several licensees are yet to pay their outstanding obligations, in defiance of the National Broadcasting Commission Act CAP N11, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004, specifically section 10(a) of the Act.

“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 broadcast regulating body declared that the debtor stations’ continued operation “is illegal and poses a threat to national security.”

Other broadcast stations were urged to renew their licenses for the upcoming period within the next 30 days or face sanctions. NBC reports that the list of offenders provided on Friday is just the first batch; a second batch will be made public soon.

“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,” it added.
