Buhari approves Licensing of Online Radio, TV Stations – Lai Mohammed


Minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed has said that President Muhammadu Buhari has approved reforms in the broadcasting industry, including licensing of online radio and television stations.

According to Channels, Mohammed made this known while responding to a request for a review of the Broadcasting Code when members of the Broadcasting Organisations of Nigeria (BON) visited him in Abuja.

Mohammed said: “I just want to use this opportunity to inform you that Mr President has actually already approved a review of the Broadcast Code that is going to take care of many of the issues you have already raised here.”

“In particular, the President has approved that WebTVs and radio stations, including foreign broadcasters beaming signals into Nigeria, will be licensed because we must bring sanity into this industry.

“Mr President has also approved a wide range of reforms in the industry which, at the appropriate platform, I will let you know,” he was quoted as saying in a statement by his media aide, Segun Adeyemi.

Mohammed continue: “I have said it on many platforms that this administration is not about to gag the press. No! But we will appeal to the press to please self-regulate for the sake of this country and also for the sake of the industry itself.”
