Presidency Restores State House Correspondent’s Villa Press Pass


The Presidential Villa Press Pass of Mr. Ubale Musa, the Radio/TV Deutsche Welle State House Correspondent, which was withdrawn on May 11, 2015 by aides of former President Goodluck Jonathan, was on June 30, 2015 restored to him on the order of President Muhammadu Buhari.

While presenting the re-issued Press Pass to Musa, Mr. Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, said Musa’s re-accreditation as a State House correspondent was in keeping with President Buhari’s commitment to correcting the wrongs of the past.

Adesina said: “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 Ubale Musa’s accreditation was wrongly withdrawn.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.”

Musa thanked President Buhari and his media team for restoring his accreditation promising that he will continue to do his work as a State House Correspondent objectively, professionally and with due regard for the ethics of journalism.
