In 2009, John Cardinal Onaiyekan was invited by Raymond Dokpesi, chief of the satellite television company DAAR Communications Plc, to offer programming through the company's services. In response to the opportunity, Cardinal Oneiyaken directed the Archdiocesan Communications Department to start a television service. Catholic Television of Nigeria started producing programs and transmitting them via DAAR's satellite television channel AIT.
As of 2016, CTV of Nigeria produces two programs, the daily morning devotional program "A Light For The Nation" and "Faith In Action", a program about the activity of Catholics and the Church in society.
Cardinal Oneiyaken has continued to call for the building of Catholic television services in Nigeria.
Rev. Fr. Patrick Alumuku is the Director of the CTV.
