  1. Be thankful for hard times like this in life. Try not to look at them as bad things, but as opportunities to grow and learn.

  2. When you fine both of them with #3 million and #2 million naira respectively, don’t you want them to broadcast new anymore or what do you mean. I don’t understand it oooo.

  3. This issue is getting out of hand and something meaningful must be done, is there any news they broadcast which is fake or what or how do they escalating the #endsars protest? O su mi ooo.

  4. Buhari should not use that style, Nigeria must speak up,FG want to block them not to anance anything on the air again it will not work.

  5. Are we in democracy era or dictatorship? Why would you ask the broadcast stations not to carry news and be telling us that they are the one escalating the violence against the government. Imposing fine on them might not solve the issue.

  6. Which type of country is this?? Because they expose your secret that’s why you trying to sanction them…God we surprise you. My God almighty we punish your entire generation.

  7. Why sanction? For waiting… which account the money won enter….I swear Nigeria is bad…all this is not good because of waiting.
