Channels Television Terminate Pastor Tunde Bakare Broadcast Over Comment On The Nigerian Government

Pastor Tunde Bakare's weekly program 'Moment of Truth' was terminated  just 45minutes into the programme on Sunday over an alleged critical comment he made concerning Nigeria Government.. The Latter Rain Assembly, runs every Sunday on the Lagos channel television, between 5p.m. and 6p.m.....

 According to Premium Times.....
Channels terminated the programme just as Pastor Bakare was making comments considered critical of the Nigerian government
 “We had to hurriedly take the programme off air after he (Pastor Bakare) began spitting venom against the government and saying things we cannot defend,” said, an official of the station, who asked not to be named because he has no permission to speak on the matter.
  The official did not say what those comments were, but he insisted they were serious enough that Channels could not afford to allow anyone to spread them through its station.

 When contacted, the General Manager of the station, Kayode Akintemi, confirmed he received complaints over the pulling of Pastor Bakare’s broadcast. He however said the station was looking into the matter. Pastor Bakare disclosed that he and his church had not been given any explanation for terminating the programme.
 “The broadcast is not free,” Mr. Bakare said. “ It is paid for and those in charge will write them tomorrow to demand explanations.” The pastor insisted Channels had no justification for pulling his broadcast. “There was nothing I said in that broadcast that is subversive other than warning the nation that the forthcoming election is laced with disaster and that if we must plunge into it, we should be ready for the consequences,” he said.
 In the broadcast entitled, “The Gathering Storm And Avoidable Shipwreck – How to Avoid Catastrophic Euroclydon”, Pastor Bakare accused the government of plunging the country into political and economic disaster and warned of an impending storm.
