The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has finally reacted to the query it issued to a popular broadcast station, Channels Television.
The regulator also summoned two of the station’s presenters, Chamberlain Usoh and Kayode Okikiolu, to Abuja over the interview.
Speaking on the reason the commission queried the media outlet, NBC Director-General, Balarabe Ilelah, said the media outlet failed to adhere to its regulations during the interview.
Ilelah added that Channels TV violated six of its codes during the interview and that the anchors failed to interrogate the governor thoroughly.
The NBC boss also denied reports that the commission is doing the bidding of the Presidency, asking media platforms to help the commission in regulating the broadcast industry.
Ilelah stated that the commission will keep on summoning any media outfit that goes contrary to NBC code, adding that no media outfit is above the law.
