President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday ordered the re-issuance of Presidential Villa Press Pass to Deutsche Welle correspondent, Ubale Musa, who was expelled from villa by the previous administration.
The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina, disclosed this while presenting the re-issued villa press pass to Musa at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Mr. Adesina said Musa’s re-accreditation as a State House correspondent was in keeping with Buhari’s commitment to correct the wrongs of the past.
“Part of the change promised by President Buhari is correcting things that were wrongly done before.
“Mr. Ubale Musa’s accreditation was wrongly withdrawn. To redress the wrong done to him by the withdrawal, we have returned his Villa Press Pass to him so that he can continue his work without hindrance,’’ he said.
In his remarks after receiving his Villa Press Pass, Musa thanked the President and his media team for restoring his accreditation.
He promised that he would continue to do his work as a State House Correspondent objectively, professionally and with due regards to the ethics of journalism.
