NBC boss in ‘hate speech’ scandal, says Saraki a ‘kleptocratic hegemony, he’s not from Kwara’ [Leaked chat]

President Muhammadu Buhari’s appointee, Modibbo Kawu, the Director-General of National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) is enmeshed in what has been termed hate speech against Senate President Bukola Saraki.

Saraki, governors of Benue, Kwara and Sokoto recently announced their defection from the APC to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Earlier, some members of the National Assembly defected from the APC to other parties.

Kawu, in a WhatsApp group of northern editors and intellectuals after the defections, lambasted the former Kwara governor.

The NBC chief in the chat seen by Premium Times, said: “It is not the “natural” human condition to continuously vote for a kleptocratic hegemony such as Saraki has imposed on our dear Kwara State”.

“Bukola Saraki’s hegemony has been responsible for a systematic underdevelopment of Kwara; the entrenchment of a pattern of cult killings and blood letting that’s unique.
