The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has come out to say that the suspension and fine of N5 million slammed by the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, on Channels Television over alleged violation of the national broadcasting code is draconian.

This was recently revealed in a statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, spokesman of the party, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the fact that APC was hasty in its decision suggests that the ruling party has been intolerant and high-handed since it took over power.

He added that PDP is worried that such a decision could be counter-productive and heighten the already tensed situation in our nation at this critical time

His words, β€œOur party is worried that such disposition could be counter-productive and heighten the already tensed situation in our nation at this critical time.”

β€œThe PDP therefore urges the NBC to review the punitive measure on the media house as well as scale up system-friendly measure that will ensure best practices in information dissemination in our country.”
