NBC Distributes Digital Switch over set Up Boxes In Abuja

Digital Switch
Mr Modibbo Kawu, the Director General of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), says over 100,000 digital switch over set up boxes have been distributed in Abuja in three weeks.

This follows the digital switch over of the Federal Capital Territory in December 2016.

The NBC boss, Mr Kawu briefed reporters on the progress of the switchover plan in Abuja. He said he was hopeful that the June 2017 deadline across Nigeria would be met.

He also said the digitisation was not an event, but a process which would continue years after the deadline until the switchover was 100%.

He added that the Federal Capital Territory would serve as the laboratory for the Nigeria’s complete digitisation, where observed mistakes and challenges would aid the next phase of switchover across the six geo-political zones in Nigeria.
