Memo by NTA to staffs
“The unguarded and unethical manner, in which online publication concerning sensitive and topical national issues are being embraced, canvassed, patronized and shared by members of staff to the embarrassment of Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) has come to the notice of board management. Management has decided to put a stop to this reckless and unethical behaviour.”
NTA further warned their staff to stay away from relating with sensitive national issues and threatened to deal with any staff who continues to relate with them.
