NBC Faults Demolition Of Yinka Ayefele's Radio Station
The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has condemned the Oyo State Government’s demolition of a radio station belonging to popular gospel musician, Yinka Ayefele.
State authorities brought down the office complex of Fresh FM, Ibadan at the famous music house owned by the prolific artiste.
The Director-General of the commission, Ishaq Midibbo-Kawu described the action as a worrisome development which did not speak well of the state government.
"The development is worrisome because for all it is worth, the broadcast outfits are playing a big role in reducing unemployment, especially in this situation where many young Nigerians are idle.
"They also play social, informational, educational and entertaining roles in the society. Such development does not speak well of the government and has a negative effect on the nation, especially at a point when more broadcasting outfits are influencing the social space in the country.
"In this case particularly, there are so many issues that can be weaved up negatively by people. We hope that as we move forward, we will be able to find a solution to the situation”. he explained.
The director-general promised to set up a meeting with the state government on finding a way forward on the issue.
