Security agents bar journalists from Buhari’s 2018 budget presentation

A mild drama ensued at the premises of the National Assembly as security agents on Tuesday barred newsmen from some print and electronic media from covering the 2018 budget presentation by President Muhammadu Buhari to the National Assembly.

The budget presentation billed to commence by 2p.m on Tuesday saw some journalists denied entry into the National assembly premises.

Affected were newsmen from PREMIUM TIMES, Pulse.ng who were denied entry despite presenting their official and National Assembly identity cards to the security operative who rather told them point-blank that a circular was earlier circulated in that regard.

He said names of some journalists from some media organisations were missing an “accreditation list” prepared by the Research and Information Directorate of the National Assembly.
