Ait License Revoked Because Of Live Transmission Of Senate 3rd Term Debate?!

I just heard from Rythm midday news that AIT television's license has been revoked because of its live transmission of the 3rd term debate at the Senate.

Can anyone confirm this news too? For if it is true, i believe it is a violation of the rights of every broadcast media, of every Nigerian. And we should all rally to support AIT and react positively against this dictatorial behaviour.

This is really sad, sincerely,

The way information makes rounds in Nigeria is funny, we hear all sorts of stories. I heard that AIT's license wasn't revoked. Rather, AIT Abuja was shut down because they announced on air that there was a plan by some ppl to bomb Abuja.

Yes indeed, let the politicians do their work, so that you can continue to live in UK and pass comments on event in Nigeria. Be real Gentle man abi na Gentle woman you be, we all dont have to see it from your own persp. its straight and simple why they say its worse than military era, meaning a civilian govt that ignores the voice of the ppl is worse than a military govt that ignores the voice of the people(We know military for dictatorship so we werent suprised but Democracy? Naa)

See, did you guys not cry blue murder last week when it was said that Obj will lamp down on the media. Wetin he now dey do for AIT ? But guess what it will never work. Let me tell you a story. Over the weekend i went to a barbing saloon to get an hair cut. You sholud have seen the level of awareness and discussion going on . Mind you the barber and his friends are not what you called educated people by any standard, but they know what is going on in the political terrain and nobody can fool them by talking jargons. It shows that Nigeria are getting more and more involved and knowing what is going on around them. Once you get informed it will be diffcult for some non entity to pull wool over your face. And that is what Obj and his co travellers are afraid of.

For all we care they may not be SSS who invaded AIT, it could be one of those propanganda by either anti or pro 3rd term campaigners, just to drive home some point.

True, they revoked licence to cover debate so it would be a closed affair and so they can reach a fake verdict with no mandate.

Have you heard the latest.

Armed Men abi na Security Men Raid AIT and sezied some Tapes today today. So you see its not just about revoke license to cover ooo but just anoda move to finish dokpesi

We know good and bad Nigerians, for Chukwumerige to cook up something and nearly everybody here queue up behind Uche is highly dissapointing.

This should be the end of this thread, you can continue OBJ bashing in another thread.

am most pleased that i have allies in dis fight 2 stop d monstrous 3rd (or is it 4th term according to gen. theophilus danjuma) term project.

i have always told d apologists of dis ignoble project that their basis for calling for baba's continued stay is untenable. that fact that a constitution amendmaent is bin woven around a single prson is highly unfortunate and reeks of very shallow wisdom.

what they r telling us is that subsequent presidents can also afford to elongate their stay when their tenures are in their twilight.very baaaaaad precedent !

again,what sustains reforms is not an individual per se but very credible and strong institutions and system(be it political,economic,social). does it mean that without baba,there will b no more nigeria?

well,to save my breath,i think all apologists of dis "coup d'etat" r working hard for their pockets & stomachs !

long live 9ja !

When would you get it into your head that the TTA is dead like a frozen fish before it got to the Senate. It is pple like you who, even though 95% of the country is against the TTA you still want to impose your 5% opinon on us.  

As per likely successors to Obj , if i start counting it will take me days to finish. Just for starters Pat Utomi,Emaka Aynaoku, El Rufai, Okezelize, Iweala, Udo Udoma, Sanusi Daggash, and many more. So stop all these rubbish that we a nation of 150 Million dont have good materials to be our president.

By the way do you know that you darling Presidebt Obj does not even have a university degree. He was a school cert failure ! ! !

"For this sin, the federal Government has cancelled the network license of AIT and given the media organization a 21-day ultimatum to dismantle its transmitters and relocate its operational base from Asokoro hill."

http://www.vanguardngr.com/articles/2002/cover/may06/10052006/f210052006.html

So there's a 21 day ultimatum. Can someone in the media industry explain what "network license" means? Perhaps what is being withdrawn is just the privilege to cover the proceedings in Abuja?

@twinstaiye,

3rd term project has failed. Stopped hitting your head against a concrete wall.

We needed 37 senators to block the evil project but with God on our side we have 42 solid and responsible Senators.

In the House of Rep. we are also leading.

So please be liberal and open minded about this 3rd term issue. One man can not and will not know it all. We have seen the best of OBJ, how far he can go. He is leaving Aso Rock comes 29 May,2007. He should start paying farewell visits/tours round the country. Let States and his corporate friends start organising sent-fort dinner for him.

"Civil war was not fought because of a single individual" -- Gen. Theo Danjuma

Bye Bye to OBJ. Till he dies and gets national burial.

Why wont you have lots of foriegn investors in naija? dont you know that the more naira falls the more foriegn investors we have? now you know $10000 is 1.5m in naira and Kudos to obj for naira's depreciation. very soon CFA and Cedis would be beta of naira. kudos to him ones again and all his campaingers

It is not ignorance, and I demand to be heard too. Those country you mentioned above did not get there at one trial even in Ghana, Rawlings was the messiah before they got their democracy right. He put things right where they are today. Nigerians bunch of politician do not have the masses love in mind, they dont mean well, they just want to get their and enrich their pockets. So unless we change our orientation from that scenario and have the orientation of going there to improve the lots of nigerians, then let baba continue if he wants to. And dont start telling me, nigerians has not improved than where he met it, use your tongue to count your teeth.

We will fire you from this forum when obj fails in 2007, you seem to be on his side without any proven evidence of why that man should stay in office? If you love Elongation that much why not go to Mogabe's or Faure's Country. Peeps like you would only make what happened in Togo repeats its self in Nigeria.

Why mandela no go pass one term even though his constitution allowed it, why clinton no go for third term. Be resonable ooo and ignorance is a disease, a plague more dealier than AIDS and Bird Flu.

I think people should stop predicting doom for Nigeria come 2007. People, have faith, the God that delivered us from Abacha would definitely deliver us from Obasanjo and his cohorts. Personally, I think Nigerian youths should be more proactive and let their voices be heard on this third term issue. Believe it or not, it is our future these jokers are playing with.

I read from one of the newpapers that AIT was given 21 days ultimatum to dismantle their mast for network transmission located at Asokoro Abuja.

Be it as it may, i believe that Nigeria is not yet matured for true democracy.

The right of the media to educate and inform must be respected and must be seen to be respected.

Another poor job by this govt.

Twinstaiye by your name i know you are a Yoruba man. Pls think about this senario, If Obj is allowed to do another 4 yr term and every other geopolitical zone will do their own 12yrs. It will take another 60yrs for another Yoruba to be President of Nigeria. That means, that Yoruba person  Male or Female is not alive as of today. In that if the person is born today, by the time Obj lives office in 2011 (hope he does not extend again) he or she will be 5yrs old add 60yrs to that, the person will be 65yrs old. You think by then people will vote for a 65 yrs old person to be president of Nigeria?

It means OBJ would have used up the quotas of 6 generations of Yorubas no matter how good and well endowed in their chosen field of work. No Yoruba can aspire to lead the country even if he is the most qualified person in Nigeria. All of these because of one man selfish interest.

i really can't imagine what is going on in this country, when we are about moving on we then go five steps backward. the issues before obj entered govt are still pending e.g. electricity, good roads, portable drinking water, more job opportunities, provision of social amenities, access to funds with low interest rates for the sole properitor despite bank consolidation, quality telecommunication services, affordable and qualitative educational services and yet obj want to perpertuate himself in govt for another 12 years after the first 8 years it is really absurd, before he dies on that seat i advice him to resign honorably as for peace to reign.

The only way out of this quagmire and imbroglio is for us to allow OBJ to continue in the office. Those politicians are the ones sabotaging his government, they are the one formenting trouble all over the places simply because Baba would not allow them to swindle us as they used to. Simply because Baba will not allow them to have a shot at the presidency. Baba means well for this nation, he knew those corrupt politicians are no good at all and they dont mean well for this country, that is why he want to die for us. Have any of those politician ready to die for this country? You will see them in bullet proof cars with sirens whenever the are passing? You will see them travelling abroad at any slight headache. If Baba allow them a shot at presidency, they will take us back to those bad days we have int he past. Cant we the masses see things for ourselves. All the good things that Baba did, they are trying to sabotage it so that we the masses would feel the pain and contibute to the voice that Baba must go. I always thought we should have been wiser by now, not taking to the antics of those politicians, they dont have anything good to offer us, it is only Baba that can step on their powerful toes, no wonder they dont want him anymore. Nigerians wake up, let us leave the fight for third term for them, it is not our fight. If we continue to support them, they will later in turn use our words against us. More is still coming from me to expose this selfish politician.

This is not the work of any anti third term anything. Those pro TTA must have tried/threatened to close AIT down and it has backfired. There is no smoke without fire. Obj and his cohorts are destroying naija one mighty chunk at a time. Now we hear of oil industry execs being shot on the street and yu think this has nothing to do with the third term!!

In short, AIT wasnt closed afterall. I guess this is the handiwork of ATTA - Anti Third term Agenda. It couldnt be at all, I thought as much. Even when they tried it during the Bellview air crash, OBJ admonish the NBC for such abuse of office.

B4 Nko? this is worse than a military era , you talk efcc follow you(Kalu & Dariye), you go against third term na impeachment process(Nnamani), you come say you na die hard then you are forced to resign(Ogbeh). its is as obvious as the sky. That man is a tuface bastard and he too sturborn to quit. Lets see where all this would take him but left for me, i would say OSAMA should just hit Aso Rock with an empty Boeing 747 on a good day or just hit PDP national convention and nigeria would be at peace afterward

Come off it, dont mind that report. that story is true and if you must know they want AIT to Vacate the Aso koro in 21 days, no be bu bu ooo

Well, Regardless of all the comments, i would say Nigeria is under the influence of a Dictatorship and it has always been in the hands of the military, that is not the worse thing that baboon called obj and his allies would do. they are yet to sell the whole of us (nigerians) just to achieve this evil mission. That man is the most despicable person i have ever seen, no exagerattion, he has made every member of his family a "no go area" for efcc and icpc. what are we even talking about self? I am just waiting for the day, that day when he would sell us all out per head!
