TVC E. CEO of Breeze FM says Nasarawa State Govt demolished the private radio station after they aired report on ongoing Labour strike. Report says the building was demolished over alleged violation of approved land laws.
“Due process was not followed. You can see that the wall is down now. It was marked yesterday and was demolished this morning. Like we said, he had a different reason for it. Whatever reason he gives officially is not the real one. This demolition was carried out because I don’t belong to the same political party as the governor. He is afraid that the station might not support his political ambition. Part of the reasons is that the station aired a report on the ongoing Labour strike in the state.”
“We have the right to air the Labour strike news. We even begged the government to come and present it’s part but they declined. I want to assure him that what he thought he killed will remain, will come back and grow.
“Let him continue to do what he likes but his time is also coming to an end. We wish him well but we will meet in court. We must remain calm in this situation. Let’s not take laws into our hands; let us ensure that we follow due process and we all will meet in court.”
