A non-governmental organization in Ondo State, Sunshine Coalition Group, is asking the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to call to order a radio station in the state allegedly being used to misinform the public about government activities.
It raised the alarm that an influential individual, who is not an indigene of the state, was using the private radio station to cause confusion among the people.
The coordinator of the group, Chief Mathew Babalola, in Akure, asked the commission to analyze the contents of the programmes being aired on the radio station with a view to cautioning the operators.
Babalola advised residents of the state to disregard whatever information they hear on the radio station and alleged a plan by non-indigenes to discredit the Governor Olusegun Mimiko administration.
The group said that “none of the top management staff of the station is an indigene of the state, hence they have believe that they did not have any stake in activities that could lead to its development.
“We wish to draw the attention of the good people of Ondo State to a deliberate plan by the management of a private radio station in Ondo State to cause confusion and disunity among our people.
“The station has consistently being airing programmes that usually portray the current administration in the state in a bad light. Governor Mimiko has tolerated them for too long but we now see the need to call them to order before they destroy our state.”
