Umar Ridwan, a presenter of Youth and ‘Gari ya waye’ programs at Kaduna based broadcast medium, DITV-Alheri Radio, owned by an ex-ally of President Buhari, Hakim Baba-Ahmed, has been reportedly sacked for posting pro-Buhari comments on Facebook.
Mr Baba-Ahmed was co-agent to President Buhari during the 2015 elections before defecting from APC to PDP.
In the letter dated October 15, the organisation terminated Mr Ridwan’s appointment without stating clearly the offence(s) he had committed.
According to him, the station had earlier given him 2 weeks suspension for posting political matters on his personal social media pages. .
So, on my resumption from the suspension, I shared a Tweet on the defunct Nigerian Airways pensioners’ fund release, posted by the Minister of Finance Zainab Ahmed, the management apparently got angry and decided to fire me.”
