The newly elected president of Nigeria, Tinubu, calls for the cancellation of television channels.

Aswáj Bola Tinubu, the incoming president, has written a letter to the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) requesting that it impose sanctions on Channels Television for allegedly violating the Nigerian Broadcasting Code.

“The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council hereby petitions the Commission on what it considers breaches by CHANNELS TV last week on its programme ‘Politics Today,’” which airs daily at 7 p.m. on weekdays, in accordance with Section 14.0.1 of the Nigerian Broadcasting Code 6th edition stating the duty of the National Broadcasting Commission to accept complaints from aggrieved persons, bodies, or members of the public, investigate, and apply sanctions where necessary. Tinubu stated in the March 30, 2023 petition.

In the request endorsed by the Chief, Media and Exposure, Mr Bayo Onanuga, for the Extraordinary Guide, Media, Public Issues and Correspondences, APC Official Mission Chamber, Tinubu blamed the Work Party, LP, Bad habit Official up-and-comer, Datti Baba-Ahmed, of offering a few combustible remarks condemning the respectability of the February 25, 2023, official decisions.

The petition went on to say: “He (Datto) asserted that the Labour Party had won the elections. This is incorrect and a fallacy. The Code says that if a guest is allowed to make a wild statement that is wrong and not based on facts, the broadcaster is responsible.

“The main authentic figures exactly examined as the eventual outcome is the one delivered by the Free Public Discretionary Commission which set Work party as third.

“The guest on the in question program, Datti Baba-Ahmed, stated that the country’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, should not swear in the President-elect because he did not receive 25 percent of the vote in the FCT, which is one of the requirements for being declared the winner. Because the matter is before the tribunal and is one of the issues included in their petition to the courts for resolution, this statement is subversive. According to the final results, “The guest Datti Baba Ahmed’s comments about Labour Party winning the presidential vote undermines constituted authority given to INEC in the 1999 Constitution as the body vested with the powers to conduct and announce the results of national general elections in Nigeria,” the INEC position will remain unchanged unless and until the court rules otherwise.
