NBC Orders All Broadcasting Stations To Deactivate Twitter Handles

Following the suspension of Twitter operations in Nigeria by the Federal Government, the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), has directed all broadcasting stations in Nigeria to suspend the patronage of Twitter immediately.

The Commission asked all broadcast stations to deinstall their Twitter handles and desist from using it as a source of information gathering for News and programmes presentation especially phone-in.

The acting director-general, Armstrong Idachaba, NBC in a statement on Monday, said the directive is in line with Section 2(1) of the NBC Act, which according to him, entrusts the commission with responsibility to ensure strict adherence to the national laws, rules, and regulations.

“Also, section 3.11.2 of the Nigeria Broadcasting Code provides that “the broadcaster shall ensure that law enforcement is upheld at all times in a matter depicting that law and order are socially superior to or more desirable than Crime and Anarchy.

“Attention is also drawn to section 5.6.3 of The Code which requires Broadcasters to be mindful of materials that may cause disaffection, incite to panic or rift in the society in the use of a User Generated Content (UGC)”, he stated.

Idachaba said that it will be unpatriotic for any broadcaster in Nigeria to continue to patronise the suspended Twitter as a source of its information and called for strict compliance.

  2. Shame, that's all I can say. Big shame.

  3. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 ndi ara
    Idi Amin levels is gradually playing out 😄.

  4. It's the people that clap for this mad people that I blame..

    We shall see how it ends.

  5. Abacha sef no do reach this one that this Buhari is doing

  6. Shame is doing me

  7. They are under a lot of pressure from all over the world as they can hear and see all the attrocities in Nigeria real time. The embarrassment is killing their agenda

    1. But their bruised ego won’t allow them retract the suspension

  8. Nigerians too gullible and stupid to see whats coming. I am disgusted all the celebrity with big platforms are quiet despite the killings by buhari and hia imported fulani herdsmen .

    When Mazi Nnamdi Kanu said this several years ago what these fulanis are planning to do you were insulting him and you thought ipob PROTECTING YOUR FATHERS LAND IN IGBO LAND WERE TERRORIST AND TOUTS cos buhari and hia 90% fulani government made you believe.

    If you know what's good for you go on YouTube and listen to Maiyegun Diary Politico June 7th 2021 and advice yourself what's to come.

  9. Is there a law against a private American enterprise called Twitter that created a platform for folks to do business and feed families? Something these morons won’t do except Mrs Oney Miracle that used her car allocation to build a bridge in Bayelsa. May God punish all the troublers of Nigeria. If the car allocation of a local councillor can construct that bridge I saw, the only reason Nigeria is backward is the greed at all levels. Imagine what Dino did with his remuneration, about 20 luxury cars with no wife and a beer belly filled with dollars. Everyday is for you troublers of Nigeria, one day, God will trouble you. Unless you repent

  10. We need to take these things seriously because their agenda is more evil than we can imagine.
