Alleged Drug Deal: Tinubu Petitions NBC, Wants TV Stations Sanctioned For Fake News
Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has asked the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to sanction Arise News and Channels TV over what he described as fake reports broadcast by the duo on alleged drug trafficking involving him.

In a petition signed by the special adviser, Media, Communications and Public Affairs of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Dele Alake, and addressed to the director-general of NBC, Balarabe Shehu Ilelah, Tinubu accused both television stations of breaching broadcast codes with their actions.

According to Tinubu, the purported drug trafficking case as reported and discussed on Arise News and Channels TV had already been cleared in a correspondence between a former Inspector General of Police, Tafa Balogun, and the United States government.

He said the continued broadcast of a non-existing ‘indictment’ violated the NBC code.

Peter Obi has done greatest damage to PDP, will get their votes – Fani-Kayode
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Femi Fani-Kayode, on Monday said the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has done the greatest damage to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Fani-Kayode said Obi has attracted votes that should have gone to the PDP to himself in the forthcoming election.

Speaking on Channels TV programme, Politics Today, Fani-Kayode said Obi would mop up votes in Plateau, Delta, and the Southeast.

He also likened the opposition party to a man with one testicle, adding that this was due to the division in the party.

According to Fani-Kayode: “PDP is totally divided; the party is like a man that had one of his testicles removed.

“Five and a half governors are opposed to the party; one of the governors called me the other day expressing his disappointment.

“Five governors are no longer with them and are fighting them openly; this appears to me like something that can’t be resolved.
