The Acting Director-General of the Commission, Prof. Armstrong Idachaba, recently gave the assurance during an interview with newsmen in Abuja, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the expected completion date is when Nigeria is expected to fully transit from analogue to digital terrestrial broadcasting, so NBC is looking forward to it.
He added that there is a big ambition to achieve this national assignment and the good news is that all the component players within the ecology are ready to go.
His words, “With the commitment of N9.4 billion by the Federal Government and the setting up of the Ministerial Task Force by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, there will be accelerated activities toward the delivery of the project,”
“We are going to Lagos very soon and before the third quarter of this year, we would have covered, at least, five more states.”
“The signal distributors are ready and, as we speak, they are setting up their infrastructure in Lagos, Port-Harcourt and Kano, preparatory to the roll out.”
“The box manufacturers are also working to ensure the availability of boxes needed.”
“There is a big ambition to achieve this national assignment and the good news is that all the component players within the ecology are ready to go.”
“By the plans we have, by the middle of 2022, we would have completed the digital switch over in Nigeria.”
“We have as part of the members, a representative of the Minister of Finance.”
“I must put on record the huge support we have enjoyed from the minister in trying to push through the idea of making available the fund approved for the roll out.”
“If I get the body language well, I think there are obvious signs that money will be released on time and the usual bottlenecks will not happen this time.”
