Umar Ridwan has been Dismissed for Supporting President Buhari.

A renowned radio presenter in Kaduna state, Umar Ridwan has been dismissed by the owner of the radio station, Mr. Hakim Baba-Ahmed who worked closely with present President Muhammadu Buhari and Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki during the 2015 general elections.

Hakim Baba-Ahmed who owns DITV-Alheri Radio fired the presenter of Youth and `Gari ya waye` programs Umar Ridwan for supporting President Muhammadu Buhari  through his facebook handle.

Mr. Hakim is currently the Chief of Staff to Senate President Bukola Saraki who is also a bitter rival of Mr. President.

It was believed that the presenter was sacked because he discussed President Buhari`s political activities on his facebook page. His sack was dated back to October 15,2018 as reasons why he was sack was not stated clearly.

Moreover, Mr Ridwan ruled-out that his sacking might not be unconnected with his Facebook post concerning the activities of President Buhari, which allegedly angered the proprietor.

In his opinion, the station had earlier given him 2weeks suspension for posting political matters on his personal social media pages. .

“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.”
