Following the suspension of the licence of Daar Communication Plc, owner of Africa Independent Television (AIT) and Raypower, the former aide to President Muhammadu Buhari on social media, Lauretta Onochie, has said few hostile and reckless media outlets are now choosing their words carefully.
Onochie, who reacted to the suspension through her Twitter handle on Friday, June 7, said only the application of consequences can force people to do the right things.
Legit.ng notes that the former presidential aide tweeted: "I'm watching a few of the hostile and reckless media outlets. They're choosing their words carefully. They are mostly fair in their reportage. They knew all along what to do but carried on because of lack of consequences.

"I think d NBC action against AIT is sinking in for now. The level of indiscipline in our nation is gross. Only the application of consequences can force people to do the right things.
"Pres @MBuhari must appoint people who have skills, competence plus bravery, courage, & the political will to make hard decisions.
"That's where I stand."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the Nigeria Broadcasting Commission (NBC), on Thursday, June 6, suspended the license of Daar Communication Plc.
The license was suspended until further notice.
It was learnt that the development was announced by the director-general of NBC, Modibbo Kawu.
Kawu accused the broadcasting organisation of refusing to abide by the code governing its operations, adding that this was the reason it was axed.
Noting that the decision was not taken as a result of political partisanship, Kawu said the organisation had consistently flouted the broadcasting code of the country despite persistent warnings.
