Why Yisa, NBC Boss, Was Sacked

august 29, 2006/independent

 

 

 

Director General of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), Silas Yisa, may have been sacked for allegedly accepting an all expenses paid holiday by MultiChoice Nigeria, owners of Digital Satellite Television (DStv).


The Ministry of Information and National Orientation had recently banned MultiChoice from lumping Nigeria among other African countries in its exclusive rights to broadcast English Premier League (EPL) across the continent.


But government in a statement by the Special Assistant on Media to the Minister of Information, Niyi Ibiyetan, attributed Yisa’s removal to the ongoing reorganisation in the ministry.


Yisa, whose sack sparked off wild jubilation among those at the forefront of campaigns that DStv’s exclusivity on EPL was injurious to the nation’s economy, was alleged to have embarked on the holiday with members of his family on the bills of Multichoice few days after Frank Nweke asked him to issue non-exclusivity rights to DStv. Sources Nweke did not take kindly to Yisa’s action, which was capable of making him compromise in the discharge of his duties as it concerns DStv.


\"Yisa did himself in with his acceptance of the DStv paid holiday to South Africa with his family few days after government’s directive on exclusive rights acquisition.
