He worked with the information minister to amend the country’s broadcasting code which some stakeholders objected to.

His stint as NBC acting DG was characterised by controversies.

The NBC under him recently asked all social media platforms and online broadcast platforms to register with the commission.

The commission also asked broadcast stations to deactivate their Twitter accounts following a suspension of the microblogging site by the federl government.

Mohammed said the new DG has a tenure of five years.
