President's aide bars reporter from Aso Rock - Report

Olalekan Adetayo, the state house correspondent of The Punch Newspaper was expelled over a story on the state of the President’s health.

According to TheCable, Olalekan Adetayo, the state house correspondent of The Punch Newspaper was expelled over a story on the state of the President’s health.

It was further reported that Adetayo's expulsion from the state house in Abuja and other activities in the Villa is not unconnected with the detailed report which Sunday Punch ran on the absence of the president in some key occasions since he returned to the country on March 10, 2017.

There had been unconfirmed reports that the President's health had deteriorated following his absence at the Federal Executive Council meeting twice since his return.

President Muhammadu Buhari returned to Nigeria on March 10, 2017 after spending over one month in London, where he had gone for a medical vacation.
