National Broadcasting Commission revokes licences of over 50 media stations


The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has revoked the broadcast licences of Silverbird TV, AIT, Raypower FM, Rhythm FM and other stations.

NBC Director General Balarabe Shehu said the commission revoked the licences of the stations over failure to renew their broadcast licences.

Shehu said a two-week waiver was given to them in May to renew their broadcast licences after which they risked the revocation of their broadcast licences.

The NBC DG further directed its state offices to liaise with security agencies to ensure the shutdown of the operation of these stations within the next 24 hours.
