//Wike Overturns Sack of Rivers Broadcast Stations’ MDs After BON Intervenes

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has overturned the sack of the Managing Directors of Rivers State television and radio stations.

The state governor rescinded his decision after intervention and plea from the Chairman of Broadcasting Organisation of Nigeria (BON), Mr John Momoh (OON), during a meeting with the governor on the sidelines of the General Assembly of BON in Portharcourt, the Rivers State Capital.

Mr Momoh, who is also the Chairman, Channels Media Group, while pleading on behalf of the Directors explained that although their absence from the meeting is inexcusable, he believes the sacked MD’s must have learned their lessons.

Governor Wike in response said he believes erring officials deserve to be disciplined but because of the plea of the BON Chairman, he will temper justice with mercy.
