NBC Bars Radio Station From Interviewing Human Rights’ Activist In Lagos

According to reports sourced from the Sahara Reporters, the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), allegedly, ban a Lagos State-based radio station identified as Grajos 89.3fm, from interviewing Mr. Temitayo Oyekunle, a human rights’ activist, in an interview scheduled by 11am, on Saturday, 2nd October, 2021, at the radio station.

Oyekunle who intended to speak on the national issues faced by Nigeria, particularly on her 61st Independence Anniversary, told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), that the Chairperson of the station got a call from the broadcasting regulator, minutes to the programme, warning them not to grant an interview to him.

“It was a programme on Grajos 89.3fm billed to start at 11am today. I was there at 10:50am waiting in the studio for the interview. I was shocked to be informed that the owner received a call from NBC not to grant any interview on Nigeria’s Independence. They thereafter, told me that my dialogue on Nigerian Independence would no longer be entertained," he said.

Pondering on this, is this not a violation to freedom of speech and opinion?

Do you think the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), did the right thing by instructing Grajos 89.3fm, not to interview Mr. Temitayo?
