ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – The president-elect of Nigeria, General Muhammadu Buhari, has instructed all 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 by Directorate of Media and Publicity of the APC Campaign Council, 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 Television (AIT) from covering his media affairs.

“I would like everyone to henceforth stay within his/her defined area of responsibility,” Buhari said.

The president-elect added that his media team should be left to deal with 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 generated.

“The time of CHANGE has come,” he said, “and we must avoid making the same mistakes that the outgoing government made.”
