The Electronic Media Content Owners Association of Nigeria (EMCOAN) has lauded the recent amendments to the NBC code.
In a statement from the association, Stephen Alayande, the General Secretary said the amendment was received with warmth by its members.
The association also lauded statements credited to the Honourable Minister for Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed as regards creating a conducive environment for the development of the Nigerian broadcast industry ahead of the second phase of the digital switch over starting on April 29, 2021, in Lagos.
The statement reads in part, “Our members and anyone involved in the local content industry over the past 2 decades will affirm the numerous challenges being faced in the business of creating, funding, and broadcasting local content in Nigeria. We find it very heartwarming that the government has finally looked into these challenges and is proffering solutions to save local content media business from collapse.”
