Nbc Sanctions Nta, Ait, Channels, Tvc Over Hate Speech by Islie: 6:00am On Jan 31
By Zakariyya Adaramola


The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has sanctioned four major television stations in the country over hate speech.

The Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), African Independent Television (AIT), Channels TV and Television Continental (TVC) were sanctioned for allowing hate speeches by politicians from both the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the main opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to be aired on their networks, the Director General of NBC, Malam Is’haq Modibbo Kawu said during a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday.

Malam Modibbo Kawu, who didn’t mention what sanctions against the media houses were, said the letters to the affected organisations notifying them about the sanction were awaiting delivery in his office.

He said the four stations failed to shut out chieftains of both parties who wilfully engaged in hate speeches during their political campaigns.

He said: ‘’Broadcasters have huge responsibility of protecting and guiding our democracy; and we have a very huge responsibility of ensuring that we don’t promote violence or anything that can lead to it.

“We have discovered that despite our repeated warnings some broadcast stations still allow politicians to let out hate speeches which are capable of throwing this country into crisis.

“We have prepared sanctions and the letters to this effect will be delivered to them soonest. These broadcast stations include NTA, AIT, Channels, TVC and some other radio stations.’’

He advised media houses against allowing themselves to be used by politicians, warning that this would affect their credibility.

On digital switchover, he said the process was still on course and had not been stalled as claimed by some people.

He said a new timeline of next 15 months as a completion period had been set.

Within the period, he said, the NBC would take the digital switch-over to about 60 million Nigerians across the country.

How? Tell us the hate speeches, those who made them and when they made the hate speeches.
Let it not be that u are sanctioning them for allowing people who exposed the failures of this government to do so without shutting them up.

NBC's job is to hold the stations responsible. They regulate the broadcast media, not the politicians.

There was an example that ocurred in Canada. Mike Tyson appeared on a TV show in Canada. He was in that region to support a charity event that the mayor was holding.

However, the mayor was being investigated for committing a crime and the TV host asked Tyson if it didn't look bad that Tyson, who was convicted of rape, was supporting another person that was accused of a crime.

The question annoyed Tyson and he started swearing on the show ( "You are a piece of sh*t". "F*ck you", etc).

The host tried to move on to another question, but Tyson kept swearing at him until they ended the interview.

The Canadian version of our NBC fined the TV station. They said that the TV station should have cut off Tyson after he swore the first time and that it was the TV station's fault for continuing the interview after Tyson swore the first time.

Why are they afraid of the monster they created. APC introduced hate speech to our polity during the last election and lie Mohammed was the mouth piece of hate speech.
Hope they won't sanction our Nairaland too.

Your selective amnesia just allowed you to single out AIT the only supposedly PDP controlled media amongst the 4 sanctioned media houses while leaving the other 3 APC controlled media houses viz: NTA, Channels and Tinubu's TVC from your criticism undecided

Isn't this corruption on its own undecided

Canadian law or Nigerian law?

NBC didn't cite the hate speech under contention.
