Saraki’s staunch enemy, Is’haq Modibbo Kawu, appointed new NBC DG

The appointment of Mr. Is’haq Modibbo Kawu as the Director General, National Broadcasting Commission, has confirmed that the political enmity between President Muhammadu Buhari and the Senate President Senator Bukola Saraki has not disappeared.

It will be recalled that President Buhari-led federal government dragged Senator Saraki before the Code of Conduct Tribunal  over alleged false assets declaration.

An age-long hater of Kwara’s most famous and domineering political dynasty, Mr. Kawu has caused immense embarrassment to the Saraki dynasty in most of his write-ups published in national newspapers and online media in recent times.

The new NBC DG, who hails from Ilorin, the Kwara State capital where a substantial numbers of influencers gravitated to the Saraki dynasty, Mr. Kawu has been very vocal in his condemnation of the dynasty’s political style.

The new NBC DG once wrote in Vanguard: Kwara State: Of monthly revenues and drain pipes.

Another of his several published write-ups are; Bukola Saraki: Demarche And Prognosis By Is’haq Modibbo Kawu and ₦20 Billion Bond: Chasing Kwara’s Black Goat At Night By Is’haq Modibbo Kawu, both published by Saharareporters.

Fondly called Lanre by kith and kin, one of the names he was given at birth, reliable sources told OrijoReporter that Mr. Kawu, who was born a Muslim, in the past used to be irreligious.

However, he dropped Lanre for Is’haq after he embraced Islam fully.

He started out his career in the media in Radio Kwara, and later worked with Radio France International, Radio Netherlands and BBC World Service.

He was the pioneer General Manager of Kwara State Television Authority, later editor of Daily Trust Newspaper before he became the Chairman, of the newspaper’s editorial board.
