Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has given approval for the state-owned radio and television outfit, Broadcastion Corporation of Ekiti State, to begin operation on January 1, 2019 following its re-opening by the National Broadcasting Commission.

The governor has also directed Mr. Idowu Oguntuase, one of BSES’ most senior officials, to be in charge as acting general manager pending the outcome of the investigation of the visitation panel to the broadcasting stations.

The state-owned broadcast outfit was shut by the NBC on July 15 for unauthorised airing of results of the July 14, 2018 governorship election in the state and other various infractions.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Yinka Oyebode, in Ado Ekiti on Monday, said, “The re-opening is sequel to the submission of report of the panel set up by the state government to look into the remote and immediate causes of the closure as well as Governor Fayemi’s intervention.

“Following the governor’s engagement with the NBC leadership, the regulatory body agreed to an instalmental payment of the fines slammed on the station.

“Consequently, the governor approved the January 1, 2019 commencement date, and directed that all arrangements for the re-opening be concluded within the next one week.”
