Buhari Can’t Stop AIT From Covering His Activities- Dokpesi

The owner of Daar Communications PLC, Dr. Raymond Dokpesi
has said the president-elect, General Mohammadu Buhari lacks the power to stop his
private tv station, AIT, from covering his activities, hence the president-elect
might jst be bringing Nigeria back to the era of Decree 4, where a lot of journalists were jailed
under his regime. While speaking exclusively to Premium Times, Dokpesi made it
clear, AIT has the responsibilities of reporting the activities of the soon to
be Nigeria’s first citizen to Nigerians. Continue…

“I am sure that the President-elect needs to be reminded of Decree
4, and he should be clearly reminded that section 32 of the constitution makes
it mandatory for the media to hold public officials accountable to the people.
“The president-elect said that he does not want to be
covered by AIT, but AIT has a responsibility to the Nigerian public to report
the things that are happening.
“There are three national networks available for national
coverage in Nigeria, the NTA, AIT and Silverbirds. You cannot stop a foremost
private station from reporting in Nigeria, it brings us back to Decree 4 era,”
he said.
