DEUTSCHE WELLE CORRESPONDENT'S WITHDRAWN VILLA PRESS PASS RESTORED ON PRESIDENT BUHARI'S DIRECTIVE
On the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari, the Villa Press Pass of the Radio/TV Deutsche Welle State House Correspondent, Mr. Ubale Musa, which was withdrawn in the last days of the Jonathan Administration, was restored to him today.
Presenting the re-issued Press Pass to the correspondent at the Presidential Villa, the Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity), Mr. Femi Adesina said that Mr. Musa's re-accreditation as a State House correspondent was in keeping with President Buhari's commitment to correcting 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 Ubale Musa's accreditation was wrongly withdrawn.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," Mr. Adesina said.
In his brief remarks after receiving his Villa Press Pass, Mr. Musa thanked President Buhari and his media team for restoring his accreditation.
He promised that he will continue to do his work as a State House Correspondent objectively, professionally and with due regard for the ethics of journalism.
