2019 Election: Journalist Sacked For Supporting Buhari

A Young Journalist Umar Ridwan, Kaduna Based Broadcast Medium Owned by Umar Ridwan, a presenter of Youth and ‘Gari ya waye’ programs at Kaduna based broadcast medium, DITV-Alheri Radio, owned by an ex ally of Pres Buhari, Hakim Baba-Ahmed, has been sacked for posting pro-Buhari comments on Facebook.

on his Facebook page concerning the activities of President Buhari.

In the letter dated October 15, the organisation terminated Mr Ridwan’s

appointment without stating clearly the offence(s) he had committed.
.
.
However, Mr Ridwan pointed out that his sacking might not be unconnected

with his Facebook post concerning the activities of President Buhari,

which allegedly angered the proprietor. .
.
According to him, the station had earlier given him 2weeks suspension

for posting political matters on his personal social media pages.

After some consultations with industrial law experts,

I discovered that the station has no right whatsoever

to interfere with my personal activities,

as long as it does not affect my duty as a presenter. .
.
So, on my resumption from the suspension,

I shared a Tweet on the defunct Nigerian Airways pensioners’ fund release,

posted by the Minister of Finance Zainab Ahmed,

the management apparently got angry and decided to fire me.
