President Muhammadu Buhari has approved 67 new broadcast licences.
The Director General of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), Malam Balarabe Shehu Ilelah, disclosed this on Thursday, at a briefing in Abuja.
Ilelah said a Central Monitoring Committee has been set up to provide a rapid response to unethical practices.
He appealed to broadcast stations yet to settle their outstanding dues to do so.
The latest exercise brings the total number of approved broadcast licences by Buhari to 473, with the number of functional broadcast stations in Nigeria rising to 740.
