GOCOP urges NBC to reconsider stance on AIT, Raypower - ITREALMS

ITREALMS:
The Guild of Corporate Online Publishers (GOCOP) has expressed grave worries over the sudden revocation of the operating licence of DAAR Communications, owners of African Independent Television and Ray Power FM, by the Federal Government, reports ITREALMS.

A press statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Olumide Iyanda, and made available to 
ITREALMSGOCOP urged the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to reconsider its stance in the interest of free press and Nigeria's growing democracy.

While GOCOP also advised all media practitioners to operate with every sense of responsibility, advising NBC to resolve its differences with DAAR Communications through dialogue, which it described as the most acceptable channel in a democracy.

In the light of the foregoing, GOCOP called on the Federal Government to mandate the NBC to rescind the decision against DAAR Communications in order to pave the way for dialogue.
It said despite the court order that AIT and Ray Power should be reopened, there is still the need for decorum to be the watchword of government agencies in taking decisions that will affect the lives of many and the country’s image abroad.
