The Problem

The NBC have in what initially seemed random but on closer examination shows attempt to eliminate all radio stations with divergent views to that of the APC have in the guise of sanctioning them for breaking broadcasting guidelines, ordered for them to be shutdown.

In Plateau State, one of such Stations "JayFm, which has since been illegally persecuted by Governor, Simon Lalong is one of such Stations caught up in the crossfire.

This action by Buhari who is obviously the puppet master behind this can only be seen as gross abuse of power, it counters the Constitutionally Guaranteed Rights to Freedom of Speech, Freedom of the Press, Freedom of Access to Information to name a few.

This is a political move to silence any opposition to this administration and critics of its glaring failures.

 

The Solution

The immediate reopening of all the radio stations till a formal and thorough investigation is made on each stations violations and an end to all forms of harassment and discrimination against the radio stations and their staff.

 

The ideals of our democracy is founded on the concept of freedom, equality and justice, to tolerate this gross abuse of power from this government would be to forget the importance of the Nigerian Constitution.

To allow for anything but the satisfaction of this demand would be to allow for a dictatorship.
