@PremiumTimesng descends to new low, shows contempt for Presidency

The online media house, Premium Times, prior to the elections, had been categorized as one of two media arms (Sahara Reporters is the other) of the opposition party, the All Progressives Congress, APC.

A recent glance through the Premium Times website reveals that it has descended to a new low; It glaringly reveals its contempt for the Office of the President.

A dedicated election portal for the 2015 General Election lists President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as the Vice Presidential candidate of the party and Arch. Namadi Sambo as the Presidential candidate.

It goes as far as stating President Jonathan’s academic qualification as LLB ( the first professional degree in Law) rather than a PhD in Zoology.

Considering the reputation for credibility that Premium Times is perceived to have, it is obvious that the mistakes are not errors, as others were gotten correctly.

It simply shows how low the media house will stoop to push its propaganda for the APC against the PDP.

It is a wonder that Premium Times can still ascribe itself the status of a credible media house, with the way it has deviated from presenting any factual reports, rather spreading APC’s falsehood and propaganda.
