The Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC) has voided the return of Tony Okoroji as Chairman of the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON).

This is contained in a letter dated February 19, 2018 with reference number NCC/DG/I/66 signed by the commission’s Director General, Afam Ezekude, obtained by Precious Eze’s Blog on Wednesday.

The regulatory body added that it will act within its oversight function to examine the books of COSON and advise as appropriate.

Chief Okoroji, a former president of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN) was returned as COSON chairman at an extraordinary general meeting held on December 19, 2017, days after he was asked to step aside by the organisation’s management board.

His return was endorsed by music veterans like Sir Victor Uwaifo, Sir Shina Peters and Ras Kimono, while the new and very vibrant musicians stayed away from him for obvious reasons.

What is not clear yet is how he intends to stay put when the regulatory and supervising government parastatal has simply asked him to go.
