Nigeria’s President-elect Muhammadu Buhari has barred the African Independent Television (AIT) from coving his activities until further notice.
AIT and General Buhari were engaged in a running battle in the run-up to the general election over a documentary which was deemed hateful in some quarters.
Commenting on the development, Garba Shehu, the Spokesman of the All progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign organisation enthused thus: “AIT has been asked to step aside based on security and family concerns.
“In addition, Buhari has decided that they will have to resolve some issues relating to issues of standard and ethics.
“We will be talking with them to try and resolve the matter, but for now the station has been asked to stay aside because like I said there are some family and security concerns. They have been asked to step down their coverage until we resolve the matter with them on ethics and standards.
“You can quote me that I said that we have asked them to step aside and that we are resolving the the issues of ethics and standards with them”.
