FORMER LAGOS STATE GOVERNOR The Yoruba criminal politician, looter and embezeller extraordiannaire Bola Ahmed Tinubu with over a dozen foreign bank accounts in Europe and the USA has decided to invest some of his stolen money in yet another media venture. What this means is that the APC leader is following in the exact footsteps of another Yoruba politician in the person of Obafemi Awolowo who equally stole money from dying Biafrans and used the loot to buy up lucrative shares in companies such as Coca Cola, Cadburys and Nestle.
Tinubu has set up yet another media platform this time around a new pay TV channel. The new television enterprise called CONSAT (Continental Satellite Limited) has its operational base inside Continental Broadcasting Services expansive base in Ikosi, Ketu, Lagos.
CONSAT will operate in the form of cable satellite pay TV with bouquet and dish. Already the total package (a bouquet and dish) will soon be rolled out for operation, all these are presently inside their Ketu, Lagos office. According to an insider, a package of CONSAT will sell for N15,000 and will provide 15 channels which will include CNN, BBC, Aljazeera and movie channels, while 95 channels will be available after a subscription would have been done.
ENCOMIUM Weekly source disclosed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) leader decided to set up his own pay television platform after he had tried to take over assets of HiTV. GTBank’s terms may have been a clog in the wheel of the deal. Again, CONSAT will be a better platform for TVC news satellite and TVC terrestrial television stations all owned by the politician.
