Shutting Down Of Daar Communications,A Danger To Free Press And Media Independence – NUJ

The Nigeria Union of Journalists is alarmed at the closure of AIT by the National Broadcasting Organisation and believes that the action portends grave for Free and Independent .

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 condemn this closure over allegations of breach of 2004 Broadcasting Code  and insist there are better ways of sanctioning media organisations  that are found to have erred.

It will be helpful if the NBC will immediately reopens 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.
