“Three months after the publication, some licensees are yet to pay their outstanding debts,” NBC wrote in the Friday statement.

While many of the affected stations are privately owned, there were also some public stations such as Kogi State Broadcasting Corporation and Kwara State Broadcasting Corporation.
