Fear of uncertainty has gripped the  Yola based  Gotel Communications  owned  by the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar as two general managers of his radio station, Radio Gotel, Alh.Sani Muhammad Usman and that of the television (TV Gotel), Muhammad Al-Amin were sacked for alleged dismal performance in revenue drive of the station.

Their sack followed a meeting of the board of directors of Gotel Communications, that  approved the abolition of General Managers  position in its tripartite mediums, namely: Radio Gotel, TV Gotel and Gotel FM, that begun test transmission.

The first Radio Gotel manager, a veteran broadcaster Alh.Bashir  Mustafa was earlier forced to resign in a similar controversial circumstances. Already an interim Managing director in person of Engr. Joshua Hassan was appointed, to oversee the affairs of the three outfits,while appointment of the two general managers were terminated.

A reliable source from the board who wouldn’t want to be quoted  told Daily Trust on Wednesday evening that the decision was part of efforts to ,’’sanitize the mediums to achieve desired result particularly in revenue drive.”
