President Bola Tinubu’s promises to uphold press freedom are still unfulfilled

Written by gcsjjustified

President Bola Tinubu has repeatedly promised to uphold press freedom in Nigeria, but these promises remain largely unfulfilled. Despite his assurances, journalists in Nigeria continue to face harassment, threats, and even illegal detention while carrying out their work. Attacks on press freedom and the shrinking of civic space under Tinubu's administration have been widely documented by press freedom advocates and civil society groups.While Tinubu has acknowledged the importance of a free press, his government has yet to take concrete steps to protect journalists and ensure they can operate without fear of reprisal.
