We only warned Channels TV over IPOB interview, we did not suspend the station’s operations – NBC

We only warned Channels TV over IPOB interview, we did not suspend the station?s operations ? NBC

The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has denied suspending Channels TV over the broadcast of an interview with a leader of an outlawed group, IPOB.

 

The letter signed by the commission’s Director-General Armstrong Idachaba which partly read “for obviously breaching the above provisions of the Law, your station remains liable to sanctions provided in section 15 of the Code which prescribes among others – suspension of broadcast license and a fine of 5 million”, had been interpreted to mean that the TV station has been suspended. 

 

The commission’s Public Affairs Director, Franca Aiyetan who spoke to Premium Times after the controversy the letter incited, said it is a regulatory instrument to warn the TV station against the repetition of the controversial interview held on its Politics Today programme on Sunday night.

 

Aiyetan added that “these letters go to stations to either caution, warn or draw their attention to what they are doing right or wrong and when this is done twice, what follows is fine.”

She said; 

 

“It is actually mischievous that it comes on air and what the letter was saying was calling Channels attention to a particular programme that the commission felt was not handled professionally or ethically and calling their attention to the gravity of the offence. The quote says if you do this you are likely to be shut down with a fine and afterwards it says desist from that programme. It didn’t say stop that programme.

“The letter was drawing their attention to the gravity of the programme they held and they were advised to take it or stop it.

“It was not a malicious thing. It was a hype; you can see that Channels is still up carrying some of NBC’s programmes. It is hyped because of the tension in the society and NBC is saying that the duty of journalism, especially broadcasting stations, is to douse this tension rather than heightening it. That is what the ethics say.

“That was exactly what happened during the #EndSARS protests but some stations maliciously went on to say they were fined because they covered the #EndSARS protest. They were not fined because they covered the protest but because they hyped the violence that followed. When you show violence as happened in Kano or Rivers, the people in Kogi and Lagos will follow suit and everyday you show us new violence, before you know it everyone will be frightened. 

“We are saying you can help us to douse it rather than hyping it.”

Two Chibok girls graduate from US university, 7 years after escaping Boko Haram (video)

Former students of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok in Borno state, Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu have graduated from Southeastern University in the United States after escaping from Boko Haram terrorists in 2014.

 

While Bishara graduated with a degree in social work, Pogu earned her degree in legal studies and graduated on April 30.

 

Recounting how they escaped from the terrorists after being kidnapped alongside 276 schoolgirls, the duo said they escaped by jumping off the truck while being driven away from their community by the terrorists. 

 

Recounting their ordeal, Bishara told GMA3; 

 

“I remember thinking about what my mum would do at that moment then I prayed. I just remembered a voice in my head saying ‘jump out’. I knew I was going to die either way. I chose to die and that was how I jumped out.”

 

On how she felt the day she graduated, Bishara said; 

 

 “It was awesome, I felt great. I remember being told that I wasn’t going to be able to finish high school; that I was dumb. I never gave up or listened to all the negative talks. It was exciting to walk on that stage after being told ‘you can’t do it’.”

Pogu who also shared her story, said she had decided against going back to school after her escape until she was contacted by the US embassy.

 

Narrating how things turned around her, she added; 

 

“I’m now trying to get my masters in human services and going back to law school when I’m done with my masters.”
