Leadership of the Nigeria Union of journalists, (NUJ), Radio and Television, Theatre and Arts Workers union, (RATTAWU), Delta Broadcasting Service Warri and Asaba, has urged the state government to complete the full digitisation of the stations before commissioning the project.
The two chapters have resolved to resist any attempt by the state government to commission an uncompleted digitisation project by embarking on a “BRING BACK OUR TV AND FM” protest on the streets of Warri and Asaba.
The unions alleged that the contracting firm handling the project, COMFAX had deliberately frustrated the digitization of DBS Warri and Asaba stations in order to extort more money from the state government.
The unions also alleged that the contracting firm was mounting pressure on the state government to review the contract.
They, however, urged the state government to prevail on the contracting firm handling the digitisation project of both stations to expedite action in the completion of the project.
