The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, says the Federal Government is determined to end all forms of monopoly in broadcasting because it is detrimental to the actualization of the immense potential in the industry.
The minister stated this on Sunday at a meeting with Online Publishers in Lagos.
Mohammed recalled that he, on Oct. 10, inaugurated the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) Reform Implementation Committee to, among others, implement reforms to end monopoly in the sector.
Let’s think of it ? Why would DSTV be the only accredited company to air football in Nigeria ? Let’s accommodate other companies to air the same football shows to reduce costs and favour the suffering masses. Uncle Lai Mohammed has always been my MENTOR and I trust his sense of judgement to do the right thing.
