Closure Of AIT,Raypower Shocking – NGE

Date:

The Nigeria Guild of Editors, NGE, described the closure as shocking and unbelievable.

President of the Guild, Funke Egbemode, said that the closure of AIT BY the NBC and the Federal Government was unbelievable.

“This closure of AIT is unbelievable.  Why would government do this in a democracy? This action is unacceptable and will not stand,” she said.


In its reaction, the Ohaneze Ndigbo said the action portended danger for the survival of democracy in the country.

Its President, Chief John Nwodo, said, “This portends danger for the survival of democratic rule in Nigeria. I’m sure that the courts will be alive to defend democracy. This action portends danger for freedom of speech in Nigeria.”

The Peoples Democratic Party, said the action was an indication that dictatorship had returned to the country.


It said that President Muhammadu Buhari was behaving like a king, adding that he had forgotten that he was no longer a military ruler.

The National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, said Nigerians must rise up and defend democratic rule.

He said, “This action of the government is most undesirable and unfortunate. It is an indication of what to come as the government must be planning to arrest Nigerians indiscriminately.


“It is also an indication that the government has returned the country to military rule. President Buhari must know that he is not the king of the country. Rather, he should know that we are in a democracy.

“We are not in a jungle. He should know that there was a country before he assumed office and there will still be a country after he must have left. He should build, instead of destroying.” Also, former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar was among those who condemned the closure.
