The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has temporarily suspended the shutdown of the indebted broadcast stations all over the country.
The regulatory Agency said the decision to suspend its initial shutdown of the stations followed the responses received from the affected stations.
The NBC Director General, Balarabe Shehu Ilelah, announced the development in a statement on Friday.
Mr Ilelah stated that the debtor licensees including big players in the broadcast industry had given positive responses; hence, the change in decision.
The Commission, a week ago, directed that the licences of 52 broadcast stations all over the country be revoked over a ₦2.6bn debt.
The communique also showed that NBC was aware of the inconveniences the shutdown must have caused the operators and other stakeholders, but it insisted that it will always operate within the National Broadcasting Commission Act, Cap. N11, Laws of the Federation, 2004.
