NBC board set to have acceptable broadcasting code

By Juliet Umeh

he National Broadcasting Commission, last week said it will reconvene this week to smoothen the rough edges of the Broadcast Rights, in the 6th edition of the Nigeria Broadcasting Code.

This is due to some complaints the board has gotten by some stakeholders in the sector.

While acknowledging all the efforts of Management and other Stakeholders in reaching a consensus, it said it has become obvious that more voices need to be heard, and a few other Stakeholders who have ventilated their opinion to be given adequate audience.

It therefore promised the industry stakeholders to make the new code more acceptable by all stakeholders.

Recall that the Commission recently approved a new broadcasting code, tagged the 6th edition of the Nigerian Broadcasting Code which all broadcasting stations had been advised to comply with.

“The board of the National Broadcasting Commission acknowledges the efforts of Management and industry Stakeholders, who spent time to come up with new amendments in the administration of the Broadcast Industry especially with the issues of Broadcast Rights, in the 6th edition of the Nigeria Broadcasting Code.

“It has become obvious that more voices need to be heard, and a few other Stakeholders who have ventilated their opinion to be given adequate audience.

“The Board would further study the new amendments and will reconvene next week in its attempt to respond to, and smoothen the rough edges of the new amendments,” it said.
