Osun State Broadcasting Corporation (OSBC)FIVE directors of different departments in Osun State Broadcasting Corporation (OSBC) have been slated for redeployment to some ministries in the state, in line with the directives of some stakeholders in the information ministry.

The directors, whose names have been compiled by the power that be in the corporation, were said to be acting against the interest of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state and the present administration.

Specifically, the affected directors were accused of insubordination against the PDP directives in the broadcasting station, and the present administration.

It would be recalled that some reporters of the corporation had been scattered across the South-West states by the state government for not supporting the PDP and broadcasting reports and programmes that are fair to the public.

Investigation conducted by OSUN DEFENDER in the corporation revealed that most of the serving staff members of OSBC are either PDPmembers or pro- Oyinlola-led administration.
Besides, a Non-Governmental Organization, Osun Good Governance Forum, has condemned what it described as unethical and biased activities of OSBC, management saying that the corporation has been bought-over by the PDP.

The organization lamented that the news items aired by the corporation have been limited to the PDP sources, which, it said, was misleading the general public.

Basically, the coordinator of the group, Comrade Babatunde Abagun, warned the corporation against misinformation, which, he said, has been the order of the day in the broadcasting station.

He said, “OSBC has been turned into PDP broadcasting station. All their reports are emanating from PDP. The station has been misinforming the general public, most especially when it comes to political issues.

“The station should not be limited to PDP alone. The state government should allow the workers at the station to operate freely and give fair and accurate information to the public.
“The station should not be used to dish out false information by the PDP who are using all available means to deceive the general public.”
