Yesterday saw a sudden hit on the press community in Nigeris as one of the top broadcasting channel in Nigeria AIT owned by renowned Top Nigerian Raymond Dokpesi was shut down by the federal Government of Nigeria
In a press statement released online, see photo here. It stated the reasons for the shut down which will be till further notice.
And just in a reply to FGN’s decision, the PDP presidential candidate and former Vice President of Nigeria shared his view to the situation “I am a lifelong democrat and throughout my political life, I have championed the principles of Separation of Powers. The Legislature has been challenged. The Judiciary has been tackled.
If, at this time, we stand by as the Press loses its independence, there will be little to differentiate us from a dictatorship. This should not happen. -AA”
