Did Buhari Shut Down Tinubu’s Radio Station? See Details

A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode last week alleged that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration closed down a business conglomerate of his party colleague, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The management of TVC Communications has said that the Federal Government never shut down the radio arm of the company – Radio Continental – for any breach of the broadcasting law or any other reason.
It stated this on Sunday, contrary to reports in the media (not The PUNCH) that there was a clampdown on the station, which was politically motivated.
The company’s management rather said, “Radio Continental switched seamlessly last night (Saturday night) at 10pm to become 102.3 Max fm, which is aimed at a 15-34 year old audience and promises to play non-stop hit music for the young people of Lagos.”
