Femi Adesina, Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari has said only the minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed can address the issues raised over the bill as it is a federal government initiative.

 

Adesina stated that the president has nothing to do with the proposed amendment of the Press Council Bill.

 

Many media stakeholders have kicked against the bill which seeks to repeal and re-enact the NPC act. According to these stakeholders, the bill is unconstitutional and will make it difficult for media houses to operate in an atmosphere of freedom and hold those in the position of authority to account.
