The Kwara state Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has called for the immediate suspension of the Director-General of the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC), Mallam Ishaq Modibbo Kawu, over the N2.5billion corruption charges preferred against him and others by the Federal Government.

The party in a statement by its state publicity secretary, Tunde Ashaolu said the development followed the conclusion of an investigation by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offence Commission (ICPC).

While commending the Federal Government for filing a case against the NBC DG before a Federal High Court in Abuja, the PDP demanded for his immediate suspension from office until he defends all the charges against him and his fate determined by the court.

The party also called on ICPC to investigate the involvement of the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed in the Digital Switch-Over, DSO.

It added: “We note that the Ministry of Information and Culture which Lai Mohammed heads is the supervising ministry of NBC and as such, his involvement in the DSO project must be investigated. The presidency must not attempt to shield Lai Mohammed from proper investigation and possible prosecution.

“Finally, the party urges Kwarans to be conscious of the activities of those who disguise as freedom fighters. It is surprising that the same people who present themselves as saints and liberators are corrupt elements whose only agenda is to annex Kwara to Lagos and subject our commonwealth as a people to their sponsors and godfathers in Lagos. “
