An official of the TV station said the broadcast of the former presidential candidate of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) had to to be stopped as it was becoming too critical and he was saying things against the government that the station might not be able to defend.
Bakare while condemning the action of the TV station said he does not see any reason why the paid broadcast would be yanked off as he was only alerting Nigerians of the looming crisis that would ensue if the wrong leaders are elected into power in 2015.
