Buhari meets Tunde Thompson, others
THE President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday met with Mr. Tunde Thompson, a member of the media team who visited him and one of the journalists jailed under Decree 4 of 1984.
Buhari, who praised Thompson for rising above his jail experience to forgive and support him, said what happened under his military regime was one of the challenges of that period.
The President-elect, who spoke when he received members of the Media Team and Social Media Influencers at the Defence House, Abuja yesterday, commended members of his campaign media team led by Malam Shehu Garba for running a very “decent media campaign” despite the vigorous hate-campaigns mounted against him by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Buhari, who said he was full of praises for the APC Presidential Campaign Media & Publicity members for the success of the entire campaign, particularly commended the Director of Media & Publicity, Malam Shehu, for providing leadership that led to the success of his team.
He said: “I thank you for your uncommon motivation to do the work. Despite the shoestring budget on which we ran our APC campaign, you did not allow the lack of adequate remuneration to stall the work at any point in time.
