Director of Special Media Projects and Operations and New Media, Bola Tinubu/Kashim Shettima Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), says Channels Television’s anchors should not have allowed purported slanders of his principal (Tinubu).
Newsbreak.ng reports that Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, said he was disgusted watching chieftains of the Labour Party disparaging the APC presidential candidate on live television without any caution from the show hosts.
“With disgust and consternation, I watched one of the leaders of Peter Obi’s PCC insulting and attempting to mimick Asiwaju’s speech on Channels TV the other day and suggesting that he had mental health challenges.
“A few days earlier I heard another Obi spokesman on yet another Channels Television programme referring to him as “Nebuchadnezzar”, “a monkey” and “satan”.
“The thing that appalled me the most was that in both interviews the moderators allowed him to keep making the point and mocking our candidate.
“They all appeared to be enjoying themselves and having a good laugh.
“This has become the norm on virtually all the television stations in Nigeria today where insulting and denigrating,” Fani-Kayode wrote on his verified Twitter handle on Thursday.
