Linda pls he was spokesman to ex-Head Of State" IBB. Babangida was ex-Head Of State & not ex-President. Lets stop according these former leaders more titles than they deserve especially after messing this country & puting our own generation under the kind of hardship we live with today. Pls take note!! Such undeserving titles u journalists & bloggers accord them these days shows d highest insensitivity to the pains many innocent citizens went through living under those past governments. Stop it please!! Its not about the grammar but the bad memories many citizens still live with today.

WHY? Amongst all these young people doing excellent things on Tv, this ready to die aged person from the bad archives is all the president could pull out? Why? does he need a kidney transplant, expensive medication or money to eat or what? what could he possibly know about entertainment for the generation of viewers who are 99% at least 30years mentally younger?

@Anonymous, Chief Obabule was appionted as Chairman of NTA and not the Director General, who is more directly responsible for daily management (inluding programming and staffig) of NTA. The chairman largely offer advice and guidance based on experience.
Therefore, whilst it is very encouraging for everyone to take interest in activities of government and offer constructive criticism, we should not hide behind 'anonymous' to be insulting each other for no reason.
