Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has reacted to the suspension of the licences of the African Independent Television and Ray Power FM belonging to the Daar Communications Limited.
He wrote; “I am a lifelong democrat and throughout my political life, I have championed the principles of Separation of Powers. The Legislature has been challenged. The Judiciary has been tackled.If, at this time, we stand by as the Press loses its independence, there will be little to differentiate us from a dictatorship. This should not happen. -AA”
