The statement said the workshop would address the challenges of digitisation as the 2015 deadline for migration from analogue to digital broadcasting draws near.

It quoted the Chief Executives of NFC, Dr Danjuma Dadu, and Emeka Mba of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) as assuring that the workshop would prepare stakeholders for the migration.

"Content development is key to a successful digital migration, the professional competence of practitioners and preparedness to deal with the migration,'' the statement quoted Dadu as saying.

The statement also said that participants would be drawn from the UK, France, USA, Germany and Nigeria.

It further said that each participant was expected to pay N45,000 fee for registration as certificates would be issued at the end of the programme.
