The Lagos State Television, LTV, authorities have reportedly left the broadcasting facility underperforming through mismanagement and abandonment by the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led government.
The LTV station had been established in October 1980 by Jakande, a Nigerian journalist who later became the governor of Lagos in Nigeria from 1979 to 1983
Reports from a top official at the broadcasting station had told Sahara Reporters on Tuesday, 3 December that the station had not been able to air since Monday, 2 December because they did not get diesel.
The official had revealed this information on the grounds of anonymity and had also accused General Manager, Siju Alabi, of poor and lacking administrative policies which were the major cause of the problem in the broadcasting station.
The official had said,
“Are you aware that we have been having epileptic transmission lately in the name of no diesel? If you are close to your TV set, kindly tune in to our station. We have been off the air since 3.30 pm yesterday (Monday, December 2) and as we’re speaking now, nothing has changed.”
