Raymond Dokpesi To Buhari: Documentaries We Ran About You Were Factually Correct by borlarge(m): 8:25am On May 02, 2015
The proprietor of Daar Communications PLC, Raymond Dokpesi, has stated that Monday’s decision by the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, to bar one of its subsidiaries, Africa Independent Television, from covering his activities was an attempt by the former military Head of State to bring back the era of Decree 4.
Mr. Dokpesi said Mr. Buhari lacks the power to stop the AIT from covering his activities, as doing so would amount to breaking the law.

Mr. Buhari as Head of State promulgated Decree 4, tagged Public Officers (Protection Against False Accusation) on March 29, 1984.

The law was drafted to punish authors of false statements and reports that exposed the Buhari administration and/or its officials to ridicule or contempt. Many journalists were arrested and jailed under the law.

Mr. Buhari’s party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Tuesday reversed the decision of the president-elect to stop AIT, saying all accredited media houses are free to report on his activities.

But speaking exclusively to PREMIUM TIMES Tuesday, Mr. Dokpesi stated that Mr. Buhari should be reminded that he cannot return Nigeria to the era of Decree 4.
“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,” he said.

He also said Section 39 of the constitution equally grants Nigerians the freedom of expression and to hold opinion.

“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,” he said.
“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.”
Mr. Dokpesi also acknowledged that Mr. Buhari may have taken his decision based the documentaries ran by the station during the electioneering campaign.

He said Daar Communications is a commercial entity and therefore reserves the right to run anything it considers worthy of being televised. He said there is also a right of response available to anyone who feels strongly about any matter broadcast by the station.
“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,” he said.

“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.”

Mr. Dokpesi also added that another documentary about one of the national leaders of APC, Bola Tinubu were also factually correct.

The media proprietor said although the documentaries were produced outside of Daar communications, “We take responsibility for the running of these items and I as an individual is satisfied because due diligence was followed in ensuring that the things that are contained were factually right”.

Every government has extreme opposition and unofficial mouth-pieces.. AIT played their part for Jonathan the same way Sahara Reporters did for buhari.. So he shouldn't act like a child!

Buhari should live with the reality of democracy. There shall be no Decree 2. If he's unsatisfied, he should go to court

Buhari can do nothing to AIT cos all that is in the documentary is fact and accurate figures about the puppet general.

We are watching very closely.

Just like I keep saying to Passingshot, Mynd44, and other APC warriors who believe in hypocritical and sheepish following of babaonechance...It is about constitutionality not morality here...If Babaonechance and by extension Jagaban feels that those documentaries are lies and a defamation of their person & character, we have courts & NBC...buhari cannot turn Nigeria into a den of crude mentally slow country where jungle justice holds sway...He's in for more bashing from May 29th unless he chooses to resign now and enjoy a private life devoid of public scrutiny cool

I think Buhari himself is disappointed with the response/bashing he got from Nigerians, hence his denial of knowledge of the said ban..

He must accept the reality of democracy and truly be the repentant dictator he professed.

Whether true or not it is not in Alhaji Buhari power to intrude into the affairs of the press via Decree 2. He should go to court to seek redress. That is what democratic leaders do.

AIT is partisan even more than NTA itself, GMB should sue them and their licence retrieved if not 4 democracy i wud ve say dey should be baned 4 life. With all their character assassination we still voted enmass for GMB, whom God has blessed no man can cause, and of course d GOODLUCK of Jonathan failed him this time around.

We never even start and Buhari is crying, only AIT is making him sweat blood for a mere documentary.

Count down to may 29 when his official media name , the BRAINLESS ONE will be officially launched & his pains will multiply.

#Buhari the Brainless one..

Bruhs, Buhari wasn't in anywhere directly involved in the AIT mess. His crews were. He later rebuked them and asked all media issues be handled by his media team. TANdroids are fond of twisting baseless facts against Buhari. Now, testing the so called Degree 2 (or is it Degree 4?) is actually different from passing it to law. This is democracy and I very much doubt if my General would be so uninformed to try such shiit smiley
