How to complain to NPC

A written letter of the complaint has to be addressed to the Executive Secretary, Nigerian Press Council with proof that the medium or body concerned had been approached for redress without success.

A person can also write for information on the NPC Complaints Resolution Procedure.

All your complaints to the Council will be in WRITING and should be directed to:

The Executive Secretary,
Nigerian Press Council,
No. 15, Awolowo Road, Ikoyi
P.M.B. 3451, Sururlere, Lagos.

The importance of the complaints being in writing is that the Committee WILL NOT entertain verbal complaints. You have to state clearly what your grouse is; the steps you had taken to effect redress; and your CHOICE that the Press Council should look into the matter. There is no legal representation.

What the Council will do

The Complaints Committee will review the complaint and make recommendations to the Council for ratification. The decision of the Council will be conveyed to the parties involved and published in the Council’s journal, The Press and in the media.

What to do when the Council fails to respond timely to inquiries.

Any person who is aggrieved over the handling of his/her request for information or inquiry should write to the Chairman of the Nigerian Press Council for redress.
