….blames overzealous aides
President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari has denied ever barring African Independent Television (AIT) from covering his programmes, saying overzealous aides were responsible.
He has as a result 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.
Buhari in a statement issued by the Directorate of Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, aligned himself with the pronouncement of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) which had also opposed the ban.
“I would like everyone to henceforth stay within his/her defined area of responsibility,” Buhari said.
