Tinubu secures apology and retraction from AIT in out-of-court defamation settlement


The National leader of the APC Ahmed Tinubu has secured an apology and retraction from DAAR Communications owners of AIT over a series of documentary titled ‘Lion of Bourdillon’ aired repeatedly on AIT in the build-up to the 2015 general elections.
The documentary claimed that he corruptly enriched himself while in public office, according to his lawyer.

The terms of settlement was backed with a letter of apology, in which DAAR Communications described Tinubu as an “outstanding political leader of unblemished character and integrity” and prayed that he would live long “to make more enormous contributions to the advancement of our nation, Nigeria.”
“DAAR Communications Plc admits that in airing the said documentary, it had no intention, whatsoever, to embarrass or diminish the high reputation of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu which it respects and attests to.”
