Notable Nigerians React To Shut Down Of AIT
Following the closure of the African Independent Television (AIT) by the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC), prominent Nigerians such as Ben Murray Bruce, Charley Boy, and co have reacted.
The group of Nigerians has expressed fear while reacting with some saying the closure clearly shows dark days ahead for the country.
Closure of AIT signifies dark days ahead. Our right to free speech is next. Regulators now competing to consciously destroy businesses and jobs on flimsy grounds.

I stand for #Press Freedom. If the press isn’t free, it means the Government, therefore, possesses more power over her citizens than it needs to have. #AITUnderSiege

This is shocking. On what basis is NBC suspending DAAR Communications’ license?

Happening right now. There are armed men all over the premises of DAAR Communications to take over. They have in their possession the letter from NBC to suspend Daar license and shut down the station.
This is alarming!
