[quote author=miteolu post=72808868]I get maximum insult on my page whenever I post any thing positive on Buhari.

But because of my job I have no option than to swallow the insult and balance my reports.

How many Buharis do we have as President of Nigeria?

Because Buhari has different looks these days.

Very soon, ur employer will tell u when and when not to sleep with your wives!

A radio station and its employees are expected to be neutral in politics (non- partisan)! This is because - while his inclination to a political party might make some people like him, it will also make other people in the opposing party hate him and the radio station!!

You are correct about a brand and marketing strategy. But a radio/TV station should be seen to be fair to all.

Watch CNN for five minutes....you will think they are owned by the Democratic Party, conversely Fox News. There is no such thing as unopinionated journalism.

It is not necessarily having a bias towards or against a particular political party or politician but what such entities stand for or represents. In America you hate guns and you're immediately tagged leftist and liberal. You want religious rights you're immediately tagged right wing and conservative...you have bot called anyone's name..... yet. And it can cause rancour at your employer when taken for granted. The polarisation of society based on political ideology is gradually coming to Nigeria with its own grave consequences.

CNN is definitely owned by crazy Dems. But you can't have Tucker Carlson or Hannity work at CNN. Neither can a Wolf or Cuomo accepted in FOX. Moral of the lesson - Stick to your pack!

They are worse than lucifer honestly. The hate they habour against Buhari has completely rendered their brains useless.

Aren't these the same people that were supporting that ugly old fool called Ochereoma Nnanna for praising PDP, insulting Tinubu and Buhari, insulting Yoruba artists, and posting anti APC comments on fb?

When people called for his sack for being so unprofessional, what did these bigots say? Now look at them.

These people are a curse to this country honestly.

Giftedhand92:
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.

Mr Baba-Ahmed was co-agent to President Buhari during the 2015 elections before defecting from APC to PDP.

He is now the Chief of Staff to the Senate President Bukola Saraki, another arch-rival of Mr Buhari.

It was gathered that Ridwan was sacked because of a post he made 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.”

Go back to the industrial law expert for another employment. People and misleading advice. How will you be working with and agaist someone at a time? As an employee you have to do your boss biddings and live their dreams. That is the fact!

Most of nigeriannyouths are not just jobless but senseless. How can you bite the hand that feed you and call it freedom of expression? Freedom of expression is good but he should do that in his own radio station.

OK,but know that there's dignity in labour.
Slavery & labour are not the same. Job and labor are interwoven.

A network own by Saraki ally sack a Buhari supporter and it is the media that reject Buhari?

I hope if the federal government also show this network it's other side,you will not come here and cry?

Same way you supported the murder of IPOB and IMN members because it suits your APC narrative of terrorism.

Get a life!

You want me to curse you abi?


What is holding you back? Like I care. Lol

Have you ever seen me condemn any APC chieftain or outfit for sacking any PDP apologist?


I didn't have to see it before but your comment was a shameful one.

Don't let me curse you.

Please, do. Looks like you believe too much in this curse of yours. I hope you are not carrying and spreading it around.

Read it well and understand that he worked for Buhari in 2015 but later pitch his tent with the group that was fighting el rufai and Buhari.

The man is Atiku loyalist like mama Taraba and immediately Buhari announced his plan to go for second term,they all decided to go against Buhari.
