Dokpesi said that the President-elect General Muhammed Buhari has no powers to stop AIT from covering his activities, constitutionally.

You will recall that on Monday April 27th General Buhari made a pronouncement stopping AIT from covering his activities.

In a swift reaction, The Chairman of Daar Communications, owners of AIT, Chief Raymond Dokpesi said that the president-elect, Gen Muhammodud Buhari lacked powers to stop his TV station by constitution.

Dokpesi said that the decision to bar the station by Buhari suggested that he tried to operate on Decree 4 era instead engaging constitutional means to drive home his point. Dopesi further said that the method reminds him of the decree He, Buhari enacted against freedom of the press when he was in power as a Military.

Here as Dopesi speaks:

I am sure that the President-elect needs to be reminded of Decree 4, and he should be clearly reminded that section 32 of the constitution makes it mandatory for the media to hold public officials accountable to the people. The president-elect said that he does not want to be covered by AIT, but AIT has a responsibility to the Nigerian public to report the things that are happening.

There are three national networks available for national coverage in Nigeria, the NTA, AIT and Silverbirds. You cannot stop a foremost private station from reporting in Nigeria, it brings us back to Decree 4 era.

Some experts are of the view that the reason for proposed ban may not be totally disconnected from the way a controversial documentary about General Muhammodu Buhari and his family which was run by the TV station during the election, which the president-elect Buhari may perceived as a character assassination on his personality.

On his part Dokpesi said the TV station was a private entity. He said if the station feels that anything brought to its table is fact and accurate it will air it.

Talkinkg to Premium Times during interview, he said: “If they had produced their own documentary to say this is what we want and AIT did not publish it, then that is another matter. What is obviously very clear is the fact that AIT believes that the historical information about the President elect that were ran, were factually correct. Nothing was done to defame him or impinge on his character or integrity.
