Chairman, House Committee on Information, National Orientation Ethics and Values, Segun Odebunmi, who is also the sponsor of the Nigeria Press Council and the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) Amendment Bill, has said the House has agreed to suspend the bill.

Odebunmi who was a guest on a TV Programme on Tuesday explained that the suspension is to allow for proper consultations over the bill.

The suspension comes after the bill was widely criticised by Nigerians, mostly media operators who believe it is aimed at stifling its operations.
