The Pan-Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, has responded to the suspension of work licenses of the African Independent Television, AIT, and Raypower by the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission, NBC. PANDEF pioneer, Chief Edwin Clark, ripped into the Federal Government following the choice of the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, portraying the activity as an insult to the Niger Delta.
Clark pummeled the President Muhammadu Buhari government for using the large stick against the Daar Communication, proprietors of the two telecom stations. This was contained in an announcement in Abuja by the National Secretary of PANDEF, Dr. Alfred Mulade.
The gathering depicted the present Legislature of President Muhammadu Buhari as exceptionally unfriendly to the general population of the South by truly mortifying and badgering the children and little girls from the zone. PANDEF explanation entitled ‘What Manner of Democracy’ read, “The Pan Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, keeps on being surprised, in fact frightened, at the present elucidation of the Letter and Spirit of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“There appears to be no closure to the frenzied assault of the Constitution, and the all-inclusive precepts of a Federal System, in the comprehension of the Administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, and his Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbanjo, SAN, a Professor of Constitutional Law, a previous Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Lagos State, at once the State had struggled with the Federal Government of Nigeria, and a top leader, for sure!
“For them, each grain of the Nigerian domain has a place with them, brooking no other affectability, or reasonableness, also the Fundamental Human Rights of life, security, monetary, social and religious opportunity, to refer to yet only a couple.
“This year, alone, not yet half done, has seen a criminal attack on the Judiciary, one of the three arms of Administration of the central mainstays of the Constitution, to be sure, Democracy as traditionally characterized, and generally rehearsed.
“The Administration has comparatively audaciously and rashly set an overwhelming jack Boot on the otherworldly and social feeling of the general population in its treatment of the rights to religious collection, and the worshipped conventional foundation. The Buhari/Osinbajo Administration has additionally not enabled the Economic Sector to be, for a consistent advancement of the nation.
“The ongoing severe outline conclusion of the African Independent Television, AIT, and Ray-Power communicate outlets of DAAR Communications Limited, a private business organization, giving work, and a Democracy-fortifying Information and instructive administrations, is one more of the Government’s derisive mentality to Administration, without risk of punishment upheld by illegal insusceptibility.
“Before at that point, all in anticipation of the 2019 decisions it was the harsh experience of the Legislature, additionally Constitutional free, another mainstay of Democracy and Federalism, to pull in the combative and scaring consideration of the Executive, a corresponding backbone of the establishment of the National engineering.
“PANDEF has taken a touch of time of reflection, and regular treatment examination of the AIT and Ray-Power catastrophe. PANDEF has discovered that, from the Act building up the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, and the legitimacy of the Nigeria Broadcasting Code, which is authoritative on the Broadcaster and the Regulator, the NBC isn’t assize with any particle of power, which it is applying as the bare capacity to act so discretionarily. To begin with, there is a timetable of offenses, and what scope of remedial measure each ought to pull in.
“We at PANDEF are sharp and basic buyers of the media, aware of how most Federal government activities have affected, nearly no matter what on our pieces of the nation. We saw the projects being referred to, and certainly assert that none of them is, in any capacity, material, “Liable to prompt breakdown of lawfulness,” to reword the Code.
“With the Judiciary, the person in question, Justice Walter Onnoghen, is our child; at the State Security Service, SSS, our child, Matthew Seiyefa, is the person in question, in unjustifiable retirements and advancement plots, our children are the people in question; in designation of assets, we are the least considered, if by any means.
“What rattles one the most in the DAAR Communication Limited issue, is the rebel robe that the NBC has put on, endeavoring to be more Catholic than the Pope. To that degree, PANDEF requires a healthy regulatory, political and protected activity on the whole Board and Management of the Commission, particularly the Chairman, the Director-General, a Board Member, who, inquisitively, is a previous Director-General of the Commission, and the Management/Directors directly relevant to this shameful activity.
“Shockingly, the Federal Ministry of Information, the coordinating office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, and that of the Chief of Staff, who ought to be aware of the voracious outcomes of such activities, to the original picture of the President and his Administration.
“PANDEF is confused that, all of a sudden, the NBC has turned into the safeguard of the Judiciary, which is very well equipped for utilizing its Constitutional mantle to battle its battle.
“NBC under somebody being gone after for immense, foul misrepresentation is making a South-South unfortunate casualty for recovery, blindfolding the Country to such shameful wrongdoing which, were he a South-South resident, would have since prompted critical activity, without a doubt, detainment, by this Administration.
“This helps one to remember the maxim of Senator Shehu Sani, that Mr. President, in battling debasement, utilizes bug spray on a few and antiperspirant on others.
“The Federal Government sees the South-South Region as weakling and sucker. This is never again satisfactory to us. PANDEF expects DAAR Communications Limited to make each Constitutional move to affirm its rights as a Corporate Citizen, and those of the thousands whose methods for the job are presently in risk, with dim results by the activity of a supposed Lawbreaker, edgy to avoid equity by deceiving the Government in gross reputation.
“PANDEF is anticipating eagerly, the reaction of all the different prosecuted workplaces and people in this unusual move, to re-open the Broadcast Services of DAAR Communications Limited, with similar pay for budgetary loses and the enthusiastic troubling reason the Company and staff, just as watchers and audience members.
“PANDER reviews how Chief Dokpesi, allowed by the Court, to look for therapeutic consideration, desperately, was annoyed, on his arrival, in a way that could have caused a backslide of his wellbeing challenge. “PANDEF reviews the brutish intrusion of the Abuja habitation of its Leader and father, Chief E. K. Clark, OFR, CON, a ninety-one year (at the time) Elder statesman, in a way custom-made to destabilize him into desperate outcomes.
“Generally speaking, PANDEF hold President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, and this Administration to the announcement credited to Mr. President, as of late, such that he was prepared to set out on, in his promise, ‘Genuine Federalism.’ “The activities of the Administration, even after that detailed proclamation, keep running at 180 level of its standard bearing.
“The Head of a people financed statutory body, mainly, at the Federal Level, is selected in understanding that he, or she, would be, of an impeachable character, unbiased, reasonable for all, without dread or support.
“The man in charge of issues, as of now at the NBC, is a prestigious political tease, pursuing advantage, submitting after each Legislature in power, not disapproving of the discombobulation he perpetrates on his partners if any genuine individual would be so portrayed.
“He rode to his present position on the peak of the famous rapture of the then approaching Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki. In any case, lo, and see, he was, the first to compose, denouncing him, when Dr. Saraki lost the Senatorial race. The language he utilized can’t be duplicated, in its discourteousness and absence of regard for a senior and senior.
“Tķuuiiiijiumhis AIT and Ray-Power misfortune is an attack on the whole people groups of Nigeria, those in the Diaspora comprehensive, since it tramples, fiercely, to their ‘Right side to Information.’
“It is hostile to popularity based, and it is a defiance to the Constitution; it is, as about dependable, directed at the prosperity of people groups of the Niger Delta, South-South Region. It is able, and just likely, to lead our Dear Country one way, down, God preclude!”
