President Buhari's CSO didn't consult us - Presidency
According to tweets from Adesina, the media office of the President was neither consulted before the CSO took the decision nor does President support the act.
Adesina tweeted, "We weren't consulted in the media office by the CSO before he expelled The Punch reporter. President Buhari is committed to press freedom.
"An amicable solution would be found to The Punch reporter matter. President Buhari does not intend to muzzle the media in any way."
Earlier on Monday, April 24, 2017, the CSO had reportedly expelled Punch State House correspondent, Olalekan Adetayo for reasons not explained.
It was also 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.
