Listen to article

The president-elect of Nigeria, General Muhammadu Buhari, has instructed

all his staff, including the personnel attached directly to him, to steer

clear of all dealings with the media, and leave all media affairs to his

official media team.
In a statement released in Abuja on Wednesday, April 29, by Directorate

of Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, General

Buhari aligned himself with the pronouncement of his party, the All

Progressives Congress, APC which had earlier expressed disagreement with

the temporary barring of the African Independent Television (AIT) from

covering his media affairs.
“I would like everyone to henceforth stay within his/her defined area of

responsibility,” General Buhari said.
The president-elect added that his media team should be left to deal with

their media colleagues as they best knew how.
According to the statement, General Buhari was neither consulted nor

informed about the AIT barring, and only became aware of the matter after

the public uproar it generated.
“The time of CHANGE has come,” he said, “and we must avoid making the

same mistakes that the outgoing government made.”
