Silverbird Journalist, Favour Bassey, resigns job to support Peter Obi’s presidential bid
Favour Bassey Otu, a journalist with Silverbird Television, has resigned her job to support Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), in the 2023 general election.
The broadcast journalist made the announcement on her Twitter page.
Otu said she made the decision to quit her job and support Obi because she is not allowed to be partisan due to the nature of her work.
“They said a journalist must be non-partisan (unbiased and fair). So, I resigned my position with Silverbird TV to throw my full support on Peter Obi,” she said.
“After the elections next year, I’ll apply for a media job maybe with Channels TV or ARISE TV or start up my business.
“We must get it right. Please this is not a campaign.”
