Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has said the amendment of the sixth broadcasting code would encourage open access to premium content for local broadcasters.
The minister made this known yesterday in Lagos at the unveiling of the reviewed ‘Broadcasting Code.’
He said the code is an amendment to an existing 6th edition of the Code which was launched in Kano in July 2019 after consultation with stakeholders on virtually all the provisions of the fifth edition, which was reviewed as the sixth edition.
According to the minister, the amendments were necessitated by a presidential directive, in the wake of the 2019 general elections, for an inquiry into the regulatory role of the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, as well as the conduct of the various broadcast stations before, during and after the elections.
He noted that President MuhammaduBuhari approved many recommendations that will reposition the NBC to perform its regulatory role better, key among the recommendations is the need to amend the provisions in the sixth Code and Act.
