Prof. Armstrong Acting Director-General of the National Broadcasting Commission(NBC) on Wednesday threatened to increase the fines already placed on Arise Tv, Channels Tv and African independent television(AIT).

Armstrong made this known in an interview with Arise Tv strictly monitored by flliqqa , the Acting Director General made it clear that the tv stations refused to comply to to the previous fine placed on them.

He said “Stations that have been fined have already responded. Some of them have actually paid their fines. Those who have not paid their fines are in further breach of the provisions of the law because what the law clearly says is that when you are sanctioned and you do not respond within time, the regulator has the right to upgrade the sanction and it is not a pleasing option. I hope that the regulator doesn’t get there.”

He added that NBC will not wave the fine for any of the TV channel “The matter can be only resolved when stations pay the fines. But beyond payment of fines, I will be more gratified if we have a robust free environment, one that the operator exercises his editorial liberty but not to the point of becoming the aggravator and the stimulant to mass destruction of properties.”

He insisted that the stations were too quick to publish/show unverified news (the Lekki toll gate shooting).
