The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed assured Nigerians that the switchover from analogue to digital broadcasting would be achieved in the Federal Capital Territory before the end of the year.
The minister said this after a guided facility tour of Pinnacle Communication Limited – the licensed signal distributor of the DSO in the FCT and Trefonics, a manufacturer of Set-Top-Boxes.
He said the project was well underway but that those that will be actively involved in the switchover need to be well prepared for it. In his words, “We are very much on track but I think it’s important to understand what the Digital Switch Over entails. It entails that all the component actors be ready.”
