Nigeria to ‘regulate’ online broadcasting

Soon, Nigeria will begin regulating online TV broadcasts. Good luck to the regulator for inventing a system that will work.

The minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, on Thursday said the National Broadcasting Commission will soon publish new regulations to guide online broadcasters in Nigeria.

The minister said this while inaugurating a seven-member committee on the Implementation of Reforms in the National Broadcasting Commission.

Mr Mohammed said the reforms to be implemented are recommendations of a committee he earlier set up on the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari “over the unprofessional and unethical conduct of some broadcast stations.”

He said President Buhari also approved an amendment to the NBC act to enable it licence WebTv and radio stations, “including foreign broadcasters beaming signals into the country”.
