Why Pinnacle reconciled with NBC

The court cases instituted by Pinnacle Communications Ltd against the National Broadcasting Commission have been resolved, reports ITRealms, according to a director of Pinnacle, Mr. Dipo Onifade.
This, ITRealms gathered, followed a reconciliatory, and interactive meeting with the Commission, on 19th, August, 2016.
He expressed the team’s happiness at the reception accorded them since their arrival at the Commission’s headquarters, stating that if the matter was properly handled from inception, there would have been no need to go to Court.
Onifade noted that since the beginning of the year, there have been series of consultations with the Minister of Information and Culture, and just as the new Director General, Mr. Is’haq Modibbo Kawu, assumed duties, he initiated several meetings and discussions on how to resolve the stalemate.
He pointed out that Pinnacle Communications Ltd has every confidence in the ability of the Director General and the management of NBC, and commended the Commission for deciding to implement precisely the Federal Government policy on the transition.
“As a Nigerian company, Pinnacle Communication’s resolve was to make sure that Nigeria successfully transited to digital terrestrial transmission environment,” he said.
Stressing that with a relationship that spanned over 15 years, he assured the Commission that Nigeria will meet the aspirations of its people towards the DSO deadline of 20thJune, 2017.
“As a company, we will do our utmost best to make sure that we do not leave any stone unturned towards the success of this project, and will collaborate on a daily basis with the Commission and provide our full support to the DSO project. Your Success is our success,” he said.
Responding, the Director General, NBC, Mr. I’shaq Modibbo Kawu, expressed his pleasure for the visit of Pinnacle Communications Ltd to the Commission’s headquarters in Abuja, noting that since his assumption of office, he has made concerted efforts to meet with the different stakeholders in the broadcasting industry, as well as the publics of the NBC. 
Those consultations, he said, were conscious part of a process of not only attuning himself with the varied perspectives within the industry, but to help him know better the processes, perspectives and personalities, that influence the environment within which the Commission carried out its functions as regulator of Nigerian broadcasting.
“Our gathering today, which brings us together with the leaders of Pinnacle Communications Limited, is therefore part of that process of orientation for me,” he recognized.
