The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the expulsion of Punch newspaper’s reporter, Olalekan Adetayo, from the Presidential Villa, Abuja,was a move towards fascism.
The opposition party in a statement said the expulsion of Adetayo, who is also the Chairman of Press Corps at the Presidential Villa by Abubakar Bashir, the Chief Security Officer (CSO) to President Muhammadu Buhari did not come as a surprise given that the Nation is gradually tilting towards full blown dictatorship.
“Adetayo’s offence we heard, was his report…titled: “Fresh anxiety at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa over Buhari’s health”.
” The PDP acknowledges Mr President’s health challenges; and as a human being and an elder Statesman, we quite understand the need for him to have adequate rest and continuous medical attention.
“We are therefore not too surprised that the President has not in recent times been able to fully face the rigours of government and has to make very rare public appearances.
“This is pretty obvious to all Nigerians. The Punch Story is, therefore, nothing extraordinary. It merely reflects what Nigerians already know with perhaps a little bit of speculative license.
The party pointed that the situation shouldn’t, therefore, elicited the extreme reaction from the President’s Chief Security Officer.
It also noted that the Media being the fourth estate of the realm is an important pillar of any democracy.
