The management of DAAR Communications, the owners of African Independent Television (AIT), has been given a 48-hour notification to vacate a portion of its facilities housing AIT/Raypower FM in Port Harcourt by River State Governor Nyesom Wike.

The notice was required, according to the government, to demolish the building and start work on the proposed Government Residential Area (GRA) Phase 5 in Ozuoba, according to a letter dated March 20, 2023, and signed by Mrs. Ebere Dennis Emenike, Permanent Secretary of the Rivers State Ministry of Works.

The Rivers State Government and Daar Communication Plc are at odds over the site where AIT and Raypower Radio Station established its Ozuoba transmission station.

The state government recently claimed the property through a motion passed by the State House of Assembly.


Part of the letter read: “Following the imminent commencement of the above project, all structure(s) impacting on the right-of-way of the project have been earmarked for demolition including your own.

“Consequently, you are by this notice requested to remove such structure(s) within 48 hours to allow for speedy progress at work please”.
