Is’haq Modibbo Kawu. The mischievous story adduced reason for the purported ‘suspension’ to a non-existent ‘digital switch over crisis’, The board of the commission, headed by Alhaji Ikra Aliyu

Bilibis, held its quarterly meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday, this week and it neither at any point discuss nor contemplate a so-called ‘suspension’ of the DG, Modibbo Kawu, who also actively participated in the meeting.

We are insisting that The Sun remove the story immediately and offer apologies to the Board of the National Broadcasting Commission.”
