Nigerian parliament seeks upgrade of state-run television


The House of Representatives on Tuesday began adding amendments to the National Television Authority Act, 1977, that will help make the state-run broadcaster 21st-century compliant.

The bill for the amendment of the NTA Act was read for the first time at the plenary on Tuesday afternoon.

Its sponsor, Victor Kolade (APC-Lagos), said his amendment will make it possible for NTA to integrate digital broadcasting.

Mr. Victor also said the bill will aid NTA in its revenue generating capacity.

“NTA will be able to generate good revenues through granting concessions, licenses, adverts, privileges and other rights,” Mr. Kolade said.

The bill was unanimously supported by lawmakers who allowed it to proceed to second reading.
