Basil said this in response to questions by Bougainville Governor, Joe Lera.
“What is the policy of NBC in regards to giving equal airtime to global, national and local content to our people? asked Lera.
“I ask this question because currently radio Bougainville is giving more time to global and national content and little time to Bougainville content.
“This disadvantages my people from getting adequate, relevant and appropriate information on the social, economic, political affairs, especially in the context of the referendum.”
