POLITICS/MEDIA: Buhari to Sue AIT, NTA over Hate Broadcasts

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), has vowed to take legal action against the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) except they apologise over the hate broadcast against him. He has also asked the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) and National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), to investigate the NTA and African Independent Television (AIT), hate broadcasts and take necessary punitive actions.Buhari lodged the protest through the Director, Legal APC Presidential Campaign Council, Chukwuma-Machukwu Ume (SAN).

He stated in a letter to the Director-General NTA thus: "I refer to your curious, unguarded, mischievous, fabricated, defamatory and hate documentary broadcast against All Progressives Congress and particularly its presidential candidate, His Excellency, General Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR."
"In the hate documentary, you were goaded into carefully and intentionally turning your respected television station into a ready tool for hate groups that do not wish Nigeria well.

"Certainly, your station has, in the past, contributed a lot to Nigerian nation-building, one is therefore stunned at this ugly twist at solemn election period?
"We demand you to do the following as a matter of urgency: (a) A letter of apology to All Progressives Congress and its presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, (b) Have a meeting with All Progressive Congress National Publicity Secretary Alhaji Lai Mohammed with view to packaging a retrieval broadcast and (c) Disclosure of the real sponsors of the hate documentary to All Progressives Congress."

"Failure on your side to comply immediately with the above demands would certainly force us to take drastic court action against you."
In the letter to the National Human Rights Commission, Buhari said that apart from being fabricated and planted, the broadcasts are a complete negation of the recent noble violence-free accord.
"Campaign of hate, particularly when based on twisted facts and ill intentions is a constructive incitement to violence. Campaign of hate is not only dehumanising, it is against the spirit of our constitution and unwholesome to national interests. The electorate have rights to base their evaluation of every election candidate on true facts not deceptive and cooked manipulation.
He reminded the NHRC and NBC that the broadcasts contravene: (a) Sections 34 (1) (a), 35, 36 and 37 etc. of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) as well as Section 95 of the electoral Act. 2010 (as amended).

That is just the beginning of his problem. A million of other people are also waiting to sue you too.

Emeka Solomon

Hehehe, very soon he'll try to sue the people that didn't vote for him haha pacman emoticon

Onyinye Nwosu-Ekemezie

A tyrant he is. Let him sue them na.

Endy Edeson

@peter: the documentary is factual but AIT and NTA did not show professionalism by including the "BUHARI PULL OVER, SHOW YOUR CERTIFICATE. HMMMMM BUHARI PULL OVER" song on it.

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

Tis not as factual as you're making it out to be. Lots of fabrication. Then again bias is normal when the press is in the hands of the rich.

Emeka Solomon

If he have the certificate, he won't feel bad about the propaganda.

Endy Edeson

@JESSICA: you see, according to LAW. one who comes for equity must come with CLEAN HANDS. i think GMB should have cautioned his party members from firing back at PDP if he really wants the apology. just last week, during APC presidential rally at EDO STATE. i observed that APC lead by TINUBU and CO. have already done the remake of "BUHARI PULL OVER SONG". they called theirs "JONATHAN PULL OVER". it wasn't really necessary to do that if they want to be seen in good image. infact, as a POLITICAL CRITIC, i urge PDP, APC and other political parties to sit up and do the right things. This happens to be one of the most controversial Nigerian elections i have witnessed.

Adeyemi Love Micheal

Endy, you are too bias in your comment... try to be objective... your comments are unprofessional

Alvarez Ugochukwu

Hahahahahaha... MBU pullover jare.

Ekekwe Kelvin

‪#‎Endy‬, has he shown the certificate??

Ndubuish Juliet Ezeokoli

last time i checked, oga gej has singned d foi bill..so mr dictator shld pull over and show his certificate.lol

Enyinda Nathaniel Okey

that would show the man is just chicken...why must a candidate for the presidency be so hard hearted? even people who could not pass their waec have been yabbing Mr president for years and the man towered above it all.. is Buhari really this hard? when will the military in him be reduced to a civil level?

Yetunde Folashade Lawal Onuegbu

@ endy U started well and u hv really changed in recent times guess u hv achieved more than u wanted. Its obvious u are pdp and sure u are entitle to ur own opinion buh please do it wisely!

Gideon Nosakhare Eghobamien

Muhamadu, Mohamend , Buhari ! How many times I call you? You wan start again abi?

Enyinda Nathaniel Okey

it baffles me what kind of education some of us receive... if Endy on his own accord writes that GEJ is a fool then people would hail him. abi? here he only REPORTS the news and people are calling him names...when two days ago Buhari told BBC hausa service that the press should be cautioned.. all of u were clapping hands for him... this was a man who gagged the press.. jailed journalists.. today there is so much press freedom that there is FOI Bill..yet people who are not following trends are abusing Endy... abeg leave matter for Matthias..

Emmanuel Divine

Cow!, from the beginning men like darkness rather than light, if not CoW (s) are ment to eat grass, now some people prefer cow to lord them. Shawn politics let's call a spade a spade.

Ommyl Ibukun

I belive endy hasn't heard d advert on radio by pdp.. so u coming to say apc shoulndt ve done d pull over thing is bias.. even if u re supporting a party u shouldn't be too obvious... I begining to judge ur integrity here gan...!!!

Olajide Young Johnson

Endy you are beginning to disappointing me for real- As a senior colleague in this profession In The Process Of Making Your Report You Are Not Expected To Be Biased, Partisan, Siding and Much More Be Objective' but u are found out of all these Journalism or Investigative Reports.

Olajide Young Johnson

We might not get it right forever in this country if we can follow Our Guiding Rules, Regulation, Customs, Norms and Constitution for once--- Now their has been a signed document of non-violence either by speech, action or physical- before, during and after this election---- soo at d expense of this if it's d presidency combined with some media houses are d one's that want to prove themselves beyond d signed agreement or law then 'Let The Law Take It Course Against Them Nomata What'.

Endy Edeson

@johnson, yetunde & co: you see, the same AIT that aired BUHARI documentary IS CURRENTLY airing a documentary against GEJ. one thing you have to know is that there is difference between Professionalism and BUSINESS. @okey: cool you've remind them what they already know.

Fatai Olayemi

jst pasing by ooo abeg my oga ‪#‎ENDY‬ contiue ur gud work jor na piple way knw no watian 2post jst cum hear day post watain i knw understand my broda no fud 4lazy man ooo continue ur gud work ‪#‎tuale‬#

Olajide Young Johnson

that programme against oga jonathan today was just a frontier to distract people's attention from their deadly mistakes that could cause this nation a very serious damage----- i hate all politicians both in doing our own responsibilities we must be objective

Olajide Young Johnson

That Soo Called AIT has lost it respect and credibility----- We dont need them to aired any documentary about any candidate, let all mass-media as d fourth realm of affairs in this country perform their own duty judiciously not being biased
