Presidency reportedly bars Journalists from covering Buhari's Benue Visit

Presidency reportedly bars Journalists from covering Buhari's Benue Visit

In what is an obstruction to the freedom of the press, only 7 media organisations were handpicked to cover the president's visit to the state.

"It is a different setting". So there are some things you can't hide forever.

Also the President's scheduled visit to the Internally Displaced People's camp at Gbamjiba, in the Guma Local Government Area was reportedly put off.

According to the party, "President Buhari has irredeemably indicted himself ... such unpardonable slipshod attitude to governance is directly responsible for his government's wrecking of the nation's once robust economy as well as other woes that have befallen our nation in his nearly three years in office".

Speaking Tuesday morning, Adesina said the president has other channels of information but does not receive all information.

He said, "If the commander-in-chief is just realizing that his command was not obeyed one month after, there is something wrong with the system".

The party said President Buhari has irredeemably "indicted himself" for not knowing that the man tasked with the security of the nation failed to take orders from the Commander-in-Chief, stressing that such unpardonable gaffe is responsible for "government's wrecking of the nation's once robust economy as well as other woes that have befallen our nation in his nearly three years in office".

"The message it (the killings) sent is that security is a collective responsibility; it is no the responsibility of the president alone". What Nigerians expect is that everything should flow from the top which is not correct.

Our correspondent noted that security operatives from Abuja took over the activities at the state's seat of government.

"They were in the realm of allegations until the key stakeholders mentioned it yesterday". He called for a reordering of the security architecture in the country and it makes a lot of sense.

We are finished as a people to know that president Buhari is not empathetic even to the feelings of the bereaved families, that was why he could launch such a grave lie to justify his inhumanity instead of apology.
