After three years at the helms of affairs at the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), Emeka Mba has bowed out.
Mba whose reign in the commission was lauded as revolutionary is among six heads of parastatals relieved of their post on Monday, February 15, 2016 by President Muhammadu Buhari.
In his parting message to the staff of the commission, he thanked them for their support during his reign as DG.
Mba’s reign was not without it lows, however, as he was picked up earlier in the year by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after the commission received a petition from within the NBC about an alleged misappropriation of N15 billion by the hierarchy.
“There is great work to be done especially with the Digital Switchover project,” the ex-DG said shortly after he had handed over supervisory responsibilities to the Director, DG’s office, Dr. Armstrong Idachaba earlier today.
On May 15, 2013, Emeka Mba was appointed the Director General of the NBC by former president Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.
