Tinubu, APC
DSS Invites Campus Journalist For Publishing Content On
Sowore, School Demotes Supervising Lecturer
The Department of State Services has invited editor of a
campus newspaper at Gateway ICT Polytechnic, Ogun State,
Ayoola Babalola, for interrogation over the publication of
certain contents on Omoyele Sowore.
The campus newspaper had recently published articles
demanding good governance and obedience to rule of law in
Nigeria.
Some of the articles published include:
‘Will EFCC investigate Chief Bola Tinubu?’,
‘Sowore: An equal opportunity offender’, and
‘President Buhari does not believe in Nigeria’.
Rector of the polytechnic, Mr I.K. Oyeyinka, who describes
himself a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress,
said the institution was apologetic to the APC, adding that the
published items was against the interest of the party.
Oyeyinka went ahead to demote the supervising lecturer of the
campus newspaper, Mrs Salami O. A, who subsequently
resigned from the school.
“I have sacked the lecturer in charge, the paper sounds like
anti-APC.
“Reporting Sowore’s story and writing against Tinubu, this is
an APC school and I’m an APC member.
“Before they sack me, I will sack her first,” the rector was
quoted to have said according to CampusNewstrackerNG.
While many thought the issue had died out, the DSS on
Sunday called Babalola, asking him to make himself available
at the Remo North Office for interrogation on the matter.
Babalola, who is now a graduate of the institution, posted the
invitation on his Facebook page.
He wrote, “I was just phoned by the Director of SSS, Remo
North, he requested for an interview/interrogation tomorrow.”

The invitation of the dude by DSS, kindly reveal the line between freedom of speech and hate speech,,,,here in Nigeria a democracy practicing country, let hope the invitation is just for an internation.
