He recently revealed this in his speech at the opening of a 2-day 2021 edition of the Annual Roundtable on Cultural Orientation (ARTCO) by the National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO).
According to him, FG has absolutely nothing against the media, and the government’s stance on the regulation is in furtherance of national interest which is in line with global best practices.
He added that Buhari is focusing on guaranteeing an enabling environment for a robust media practice in Nigeria.
His words, “Contrary to insinuation in some quarters, this government has no plans to muzzle the media. It appreciates the media as a strategic partner in our determination to foster the socio-economic and political development of our nation.”

He is a retired major general in the Nigerian Army and previously served as the nation’s head of state from 31 December 1983 to 27 August 1985, after taking power in a military coup d’état. The term Buharism is ascribed to the Buhari military government.
