RE: APOLOGY by DAILY TRUST
August 11, 2017
The AICL read with dismay, the “RETRACTION” published by the Daily Trust Newspaper of Thursday, August 10, 2017 making reference to its earlier malicious publication of Monday, July 31, 2017 headlined ‘Disquiet in FCT coy over salary fraud; whistle-blowers’ sack’’.
Our demands are simple; a full RETRACTION and APOLOGY given same prominence as its mischievous publication of July 31, 2017 (Front Page Headlined and Half Page 3).
We certainly will not accept the 2 x 2 corner piece apology issued on page 3 as retraction to their libellous and defamatory publication.
Unfortunately, this falsehood has rubbished whatever integrity the medium seemed to have enjoyed in time past and has comfortably placed it in the genre of junk publications.
