Spread The News
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, today inspected equipment destroyed by fire at the International Station of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) in Abuja.
Mohammed told newsmen after inspecting the facility that the “dehumidifiers” became too dry, resulting in a fire outbreak at the station on Sunday.
He, however, said that the fire from the equipment did not affect other transmission equipment in the station.
The dehumidifiers prevented the transmission equipment from damage.
The minister said NTA International had since resumed transmission after the incident.
On the way forward, the minister said:“We have to replace the dehumidifiers and look at long-term strategies to prevent a reccurrence in future.
“ This thing should be expected in any system; it does happen. The important thing is to see that it does not repeat itself.’’
The minister urged the workers to be vigilant and ensure that there was no negligence of duty.
