Court Dismisses NBC’s Suit Seeking To Vacate Judgement Stopping Them From Imposing Fines On Stations

The Federal High Court Abuja has dismissed the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC)’s motion seeking an order setting aside its judgement restraining the commission from imposing fines on broadcast stations in the country.

Justice James Omotosho, the presiding Judge while delivering the judgement  dismissed all the grounds put forward by the NBC, describing the same as an afterthought.

The Judge held that despite being served with the originating process and hearing notices in the case leading to the judgement, the commission failed to file its defence.

The judge said contrary to the NBC’s argument that it was not served with court processes that led to the judgement, the court file showed that the NBC was served but failed to file its Entry of Appearance.

He said there was an affidavit of facts deposed to by the court bailiff that confirmed that court processes were served on the commission on different occasions.
