Buhari cautions Personal Aides on Media roles
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.”
