APC Say Federal Government Siege On Newspapers Is A Battle The Jonathan Administration Cannot Win.

The All Progressives Congress APC has condemned what it called the unreasonable siege on newspapers across the country by security agencies, warning that the Jonathan Administration has taken on a battle it cannot win by tampering with press freedom.
 In a statement issued by its Interim National Publicity Secretary Lai Mohammed, the party said the President failed to learn the lessons of history that the Nigerian media can neither be intimidated nor suppressed by anyone, and that all those who tried to do so in the past lived to regret their actions.

 It wondered why a government that is being asked to diligently prosecute the war on terror is instead vehemently waging a war on the media and using the security agencies to interfere with the country's democracy.
