Speaking on the infringement of a local program; Alago’s magazine program on the state own radio (NBS FM, Lafia), Orogu condemned the act, describing it as impunity of the highest order which would be jeopardised the nasty democracy of the state.

The chairman further said the program is aimed at discussing the unity and progress of Alago nation, but why would the government suddenly issue a command to stopped such live program ongoing?

“Our attention was drowned in the happening in the state own radio station that there were activities of Alago magazine which was asked to be stopped, while some other tribes program would be allowed if not for political impunity by the present government of APC, ” he reiterated.

He then said the program has nothing to do with the PDP, but rather a normal program promoting the unity and progress of Alago people even though the present serving Senator representing Nasarawa South Senatorial zone, is from the same extraction and would be contesting against the Governor,
