APC accuses Ekiti State media of misconduct, petitions NBC
THE All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has petitioned the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), calling the attention of the regulatory body to acts of unprofessionalism and abuses at the radio and television stations of the Broadcasting Service of Ekiti State (BSES).
Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatubosun, said in a statement that in a petition by APC State Secretary, Paul Omotoso, dated February 15, 2015, the party pointed NBC’s attention to the poor quality control mechanism arising from poor staffing at the leadership cadre of the two stations.
“We have discovered that the core professionals that can advise on the quality control mechanism of the two stations have been sidelined in favour of state government cronies who do not have requisite qualification to hold their positions.
“For instance, apart from the avalanche of contract staff that were hired on the basis of partisan solidarity, the Acting Director General of BSES, has never practised in any reputable newsroom of any print or electronic media anywhere across the country. At best, he is a political journalist without any basic grounding in media practice and he is often used by politicians to malign innocent opponents,” Olatubosun explained.
