The National Broadcasting Commission NBC has ordered all broadcast stations in the country to suspend the patronage of twitter with immediate effect.
NBC said the decision followed the suspension of Twitter Operations in Nigeria by the federal government over the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining the corporate existence of Nigeria.
The acting Director General of NBC Professor Armstrong Idachaba issued the directive in a statement today titled “suspend twitter handles”.
The commission directed the broadcast stations to de-install twitter handles and desist from using twitter as a source of information gathering for a news and programmes presentation, especially phone in.
NBC noted that it will be unpatriotic for any broadcaster in Nigeria to continue to patronize the suspended twitter as a source of its information and called for strict compliance.
