Rufai Oseni Faults NBC Failure To Sanction NTA Over Its Role In Declaration Of Binani As Adamawa Gov-Elect

Nigerian journalist, Rufai Oseni, has mocked the Nigeria Broadcast Commission, NBC, for playing what he described as “double standard.”

Oseni, in a post via his Twitter handle on Thursday, said that the NBC was yet to take action following the role of the Nigeria Television Authority, NTA, in the illegal declaration of Adamawa gubernatorial election result.

He wondered why the broadcast regulatory body has yet to issue any sanction, alleging a double standard.

Recall that Hudu Yunusa, the Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Adamawa State, had illegally declared Binani winner of the State election on Sunday.

The illegal declaration was covered by the NTA, a government-owned media outfit.

However, the electoral commission swiftly denounced the purported declaration and suspended the collation of results of the supplementary election.

Reacting, Oseni claimed that if it was another station, the NBC would have sanctioned such station the next day.

He wrote, “About a week, yet we have heard no statement from the NBC on the NTA incident, if it was another station.The next day they would have sanctioned such station. Double standards!”
