The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, stated this on Monday, on AriseTV’s The Morning Show monitored by The Nation.

He said: “…This government never clamped down on the media, it has never done, and will never do.

“This government will never tamper with the independence of the media, and freedom of the press. If any columnist is alleging that, it is within his right…

“Peoples gazette is a paper that lies everyday. It has lied against me, and has lied against several people. So why should we bother ourselves against a platform that is full of lies?”
