DSTV has been called into questioning by Human Rights activist, Reno Omokri for assigning frequency number, 419 to the broadcasting channel, NTA.
Reno Omokri, in a post on his Instagram page, claimed it is a deliberate action and mockery of the nation Nigeria for DSTV to assign such a frequency number to the Nigerian government-owned broadcaster, NTA
Reno asserted that it’s a deliberate attempt to mock and de-market Nigeria and its citizens.
The number ‘419’ is publicly noted to be associated with fraud and criminal activities, as such, Reno likened the act to calling NTA fraud.
He further chided the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, and the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation for not taking any action against it, but are busy sanctioning TV stations criticizing the Buhari administration.
“Why has DSTV, a South African company operating in Nigeria, chosen to give the Nigerian Television Authority, @NTANetwork, the frequency channel of 419?
That is NOT a coincidence. It is a deliberate action. It is subversive and carries a very powerful subliminal message that demarkets Nigeria as a brand.
It is a mockery of our nation and its citizens. And if Lai Mohammed was alive to his responsibilities, @DSTVNigeria ought to be answering questions!
The Nigerian Broadcast Commission, that ought to have spotted this, are instead more focused on sanctioning radio and TV stations that criticise the Buhari administration. What a pity!”
