News NBC: VP Osinbajo calls for review of amended broadcasting code

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo says the Federal Government needs to revisit the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) amendment of the broadcasting code. 2

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo says the Federal Government needs to revisit the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) amendment of the broadcasting code.

Osinbajo said this on Friday during a session with the vice president of Facebook on Policy and Communication, Nick Clegg.

The code, which has stirred controversy, seeks to regulate content exclusivity, enforce content sharing and empower the NBC to determine prices at which content is sold to sub-licensees by rights holders..

Osinbajo said there is a need to take a second look at the code so as not to “stifle the work of hardworking, creative people. I think we should take a second look at. Basically, it says if you have a licence product for TV, you’re expected to share it with other platforms. It’s one which I understand the argument of those who say this is a violation of copyright and intellectual property which is a very strong point and this is why I think we have to take a second look at it and see whether there are ways of moderating it to be more acceptable so as not stifle the work of very hardworking, creative people.”

Ikra Aliyu Bilbis, chairman of the NBC board, had accused Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, of amending the country’s broadcasting code “unilaterally” without involving relevant stakeholders.
