— LTV building dilapidation status under her ”not my father’s properties attitude”
The federal and state government pronouncement on Cashless policy is no more followed in the daily marketing transactions by the Lagos Television management led by Siju Alabi,the IGR has reduced drastically due to the corruption perpetrated by the GM, investigation reveals…
Lagos Television made a lot in millions to sales of airtime during the Coronavirus lockdown but all these transactions were done in the GM’s office hence, why their IGR is returning low since she has pocketed returns from marketing sales, insider told This Medium, a typical example was when Fuji Musician Association of Nigeria (FUNMAN) Lagos State Chapter did a music to campaign against Covid-19 pandemic but the GM through her head of marketing ordered that they must pay N10,000 per slot before the music can be aired.
Alleged Sources revealed that between 2015 & 2017, LTV was making close to N50 million per month even when the Lagos State Government Ministries, Department & Agencies were not paying for services rendered to them yet, the station was able to remit monthly pension dues because those GM’s then, operated a cashless policy.
Also Siju Alabi employed GL. 13 cronies without due process when there was a ban on employment in Lagos State in 2018.
Source revealed that her P.A, was employed at point of entry on GL. 13 in 2016 with a Diploma Certificate qualification.
Another Lagos Television, Director Admin. & HR, who is not an administrator employed her son who is a Mass Communication graduate into Lagos Television Service when there was still a ban on employment because the GM, Siju Alabi approved it in order to appease her and engage those desecrating the standard of broadcasting today at the station.
The Director of Admin. & HR has grounded official process due to her inadequacies hence till today retirees since 2015 have not been paid their pension benefits yet all the management are receiving salaries whilst those who make sacrifice for what she is milking today in LTV are dying in penury.
Investigation shows that Siju Alabi is not a core professional production person hence, why Lagos Television has gone down the doldrums. Programs Production is not of standard unlike before and the News Productions which she claims to be an expert is totally watery, unlike in the days of late Kunle Oloke, Ayo Agbesanwa, Biodun Akinbusuyi and others then in News Production Department
Advertising Agencies are no longer patronizing Lagos Television unlike before. To prove this, even Lagos State Government picked MiTV as their choice station to pay and air its E-learning educational programs during the lockdown because LTV media report rating has drastically gone down.
Concerned Lagosians and media experts urged His Excellency Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to quickly take a drastic decision on issues affecting the state owned TV station. Which has grossly lost it past glory as a result of mismanagement, corruption and the idea of “NOT MY FATHERS PROPERTIES”
