The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), has hosted a 1-day interactive engagement with its country-wide stakeholders in Abuja, where the National Open University of Nigeria FM, popularly known as NOUN FM 105.9, Lagos, was in attendance.

The inaugural interactive session, which took place at the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja on Wednesday, April 24, 2024, witnessed the presence of the 

Director-General of the commission, Mr Charles Ebuebu, as well as other senior officials of the organisation..

Mrs. Tope Oyewole and Mr. Azubuike Onicha of the NOUN FM, Lagos represented the station at the meeting in Abuja.

The chief host, Mr. Ebuebu said the interactive engagement as an opportunity to proffer solutions and chat a way forward on matters relating to the industry.

The Director-General also used the opportunity to remind media executives of the need to adhere to the provisions of broadcasting codes.

Ebuebu disclosed that they aim to establish a mutually-beneficial relationship for enabling and viable broadcasting industry in Nigeria, adding that the commission is committed to promoting professionalism within the broadcast industry.


Some stakeholders noted that the interactive engagement would help in bridging the communication gap between the commission and the stakeholders, as they called on the commission to be considerate in its dealings with them. 

Members, therefore, sought adjustments on the use of analogue to digital transmitters and the expansion of frequencies for better and wider coverage.

Stakeholders solicited the government to invest in superstructure on digitised radio.

NBC reminded the stakeholders of their pledge to remain within the frequency assigned to them and avoid crossing into other coverage areas and to also maintain their territory by ensuring that their signals are confined within the borders of Nigeria.

The Director-General used the session to extend his hand of friendship towards promoting united and a viable broadcasting industry in the country.
