Justice Nkeonye Evelyn Maha granted MRA leave to apply to the court to compel the NBC to make available to it the information it requested after hearing arguments from the organization’s lawyers in two separate ex parte motions in which it complained that the Commission had failed to respond to two separate applications for information – the first dated February 17, 2023 and signed by Maimuna Momoh, a Programme Officer at MRA; and a second letter dated February 20, 2023 and signed by Monday Arunsi, MRA’s Legal Officer.

In a request made pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, 2011 and signed by MRA’s Communications Officer,  Idowu Adewale, the organization asked the NBC to provide it with a list of all broadcasting stations and platforms operating in Nigeria licensed by the Commission and the amount that each of the licensed stations is required to pay as licence fees.
