The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the reported suspension and fine of N5m slammed by the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) on Channels Television over alleged violation of broadcasting code, as draconian.

A press statement by the PDP which was signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, on Monday, 26th of April described the action a hasty, intolerant and highhanded on the part of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC).

The statement said, “the PDP stresses that, without prejudice to the issues raised against Channels Television, the reported hasty clamp down, without the benefit of caution, is suggestive of intolerance and high-handedness by the regulatory body”.

“Our party is worried that such disposition could be counter-productive and heighten the already tensed situation in our nation at this critical time”.

Concluding, the PDP said it “urges the NBC to review the punitive measure on the media house as well as scale up system-friendly measure that will ensure best practices in information dissemination in our country”.
