The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has reportedly revoked the licenses of the African Independent Television (AIT), Silverbird Television (STV), and 50 other television and radio stations over mounting debt.

The stations have allegedly not renewed their licences in years.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja on Friday, Balarabe Shehu Ilelah, director-general of the commission, said the stations have been owing the NBC since 2015.

Ilelah said the affected stations — indebted to the tune of N2 billion — should shut down their operations within 24 hours.

The director-general said in May, the stations were given two weeks to pay their debt, but they failed to do so.

“After due consideration, the NBC hereby announces the revocation of the licences of the under-listed stations and gives them 24 hours to shut down their operations,” Ilelah said.

“Our offices nationwide are hereby directed to collaborate with security agencies to ensure immediate compliance.

“All stations who have not renewed their licences for the current duration and are advised to do so within 30 days to avoid sanctions.”

He said all Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) and all other broadcast stations that are streaming on online platforms must register with the commission to avoid disconnection.
