radio presenter sacked supporting buhari

Umar Ridwan, Kaduna based OAP who recently lost his job for supporting President Buhari via Facebook.

He was fired from his position as the presenter of a youth program for posting PMB’s achievements on his Facebook page.

DITV-Alheri Radio is owned by Hakim Baba-Ahmed, Chief of Staff to the Senate President Bukola Saraki, arch-rival of president Muhammadu Buhari.

Umar Ridwan said the station had earlier given him a two-week suspension for posting “political matters” on his personal social media pages.

On how he lost his job at DITV Alheri Radio, Umar said:

“After some consultations with industrial law experts, I discovered that the station has no right whatsoever to interfere with my personal activities, as long as it does not affect my duty as a presenter.

“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.

“After a few days, I was invited to pick a letter, stating that my services were not needed. I was also given a one-month salary, with no allowances”.
