APC contacts NBC over right to reply
The Adamawa State chapter of Nigerian political party the All Progressives Congress has accused media organisations of denying it the “right to reply” in a letter sent to the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission.
The letter, which was signed by the state publicity secretary of the party, Hon Mohammed Abdullahi, said: “After observing with grave concern in the past few months the inability of some media houses in the state to accord us the right to reply, we write to the National Broadcasting Commission seeking clarification.”
In response, the NBC advised the party to take steps for redress, stating that broadcast media houses are required to give implicated parties the right to reply to accusations.
Media organisations in in Adamawa State include Adamawa State Television, Adamawa Broadcasting Corporation (a radio house), and Adamawa Publishing, which is behind weekly newspaper Scope.
