Biafra agitators

Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Information, Dr. Sade Yemi-Esan, yesterday disclosed that the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation, NBC, has succeeded in blocking the signal of the controversial Radio Biafra because it was not licensed.
Yemi-Esan disclosed this to State House correspondents after briefing President Muhammadu Buhari of her ministry’s activities.
She said the commission was currently working with security agencies to arrest the sponsors of the radio station.
“We also gave a report on Radio Biafra. Right now, the signals from the radio have been jammed successfully by the NBC.

She added that the President had directed her ministry to put machinery in place to end the scourge of piracy in the nation’s movie industry.
“The President raised concerns about piracy in Nollywood and he has instructed us to work harder to ensure that the producers of Nollywood films get what is due to them and that we reduce piracy to the barest minimum,” she said.
She added that the President also expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that some media houses are in the habit of owing salaries.
She said, “I think it was last week that one of the newspapers was shut down because of non-payment of salaries.
“I think that should not be heard of in a country like Nigeria.
“Mr. President frowns on things like that; the welfare of every Nigerian, especially journalists is one of the major concerns that we have.”
