Edo 2020: TVC Head Of News, Jide Otitoju Under Attack For Mocking Obaseki

By NewsCritic Reporters

The Television Continental Head of News and Political Analysts, Babajide Kolade-Otitoju has come under severe attacks from social media users over his analysis on the TVC over the just concluded Edo State governorship election.

Mr Jide Otitoju was criticised for being unprofessional in his analysis and for mocking Governor Godwin Obaseki that he will lose completely if he joins the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, following his disagreement with Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and the All Progressives Congress, APC, overlords.

Jide, one of the finest journalists who started journalism with the Democrat Newspaper, also practised in Kano as Correspondent of the News Magazine. It was from Kano that he was recalled to Lagos by the News to edit PM News evening newspaper. Following the demise of the News/PM News, Jide moved to TVC founded by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Social media users accused him of partisanship in his analysis, especially in the Edo governorship debacle. TVC followers disclosed that since Obaseki emerged winner of the poll, the TVC has not covered it or held any meaningful conversation on the contest, accusing Jide of unprofessionalism.

For instance, he was quoted to have said “I want him Obaseki to contest so that his humiliation can be complete. He has no base, if he joins the PDP he will divide the party and the aggrieved ones will join the APC to make the APC stronger”.
