Atiku speaks on AIT, Ray Power FM shut down

Atiku Abubakar, Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019 election, has spoken on the shut down of AIT, Ray Power FM by the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC).

Okay.ng reported on Thursday evening that the NBC suspended the license of Daar Communication Plc, the parent company of two media houses.

In several tweets on Twitter, Atiku said the move shouldn’t have happened, he wrote:

“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.”
