The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that all accredited media organisations in the country including the African Independent Television (AIT) are free to cover the activities of the president –elect General Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by its national publicity secretary Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the incoming Buhari administration will not discriminate against any media organisation, irrespective of its role during the electioneering campaign leading to the recent polls.
It however, enjoined all media organisations to observe the highest level of professional standard in carrying out their duties.
‘There is a code of ethics guiding the practice of journalism in Nigeria, and this demands every journalist to ensure a strict adherence to the highest levels of ethics and professionalism in carrying out their duties.
‘There must be repercussions within the realm of the law, for media organisations which have wantonly breached the code of ethics of the journalism professionals. But such repercussions will not include barring any accredited media organisation from covering the activities of the president-elect.’ APC said.]]>
