The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that all
accredited media organizations in the country, including the African
Independent Television (AIT), are free to cover the activities of the
President-elect, Gen. 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 organization,
irrespective of its role during the electioneering campaign leading up to the
recent polls.

It however enjoined all media organizations to observe the
highest level of professional standards 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 realms of the law,
for media organizations which have wantonly breached the Code of Ethics of the
journalism profession and turned themselves to partisans instead of
professionals. But such repercussions will not include barring any accredited
media organization from covering the activities of the President-elect,” APC
said.
