‘It’s Intolerable’ — NUJ react to Close down of AIT by FG

132

The Nigeria Union of Journalists is a
scare at the close down of AIT by the National Broadcasting Organisation and assure that the action portends grave panic for Free Press and Independent Media.

Independent and Pluralistic Media in a democracy like Nigeria serve to promote democracy by their dissemination of authentic information and ensuring transparency in governance.

We dislike this close down over allegations of breach of 2004 Broadcasting Code and insist there are better ways of sanctioning media organizations that are found to have erred.

It will be helpful if the NBC will immediately reopen AIT to ensure that they continue to promote debate and opinions on issues that are of societal, economic and political importance to the nation. We expect them to do the needful in 24-hours.

Chris Isiguzo
NUJ President
