The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has approved the appointment of Balarabe Shehu Ilelah, a veteran broadcaster, as the Director-General of the National Broadcasting Commission.


The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, announced the appointment in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday.


He said Ilelah’s appointment “is for a tenure of five years in the first instance.”


Ilelah replaces erstwhile DG, Prof Armstrong, amid a Twitter ban issued by the Federal Government.
