NASS Official Chases Journalists Away From Budget Defence Session
The Clerk of the Senate Committee on Special Duties, Umar Kabir, on Friday chased PREMIUM TIMES’ reporter and other online journalists out of a hearing room at the National Assembly.
He did this when members of the committee were about to meet with delegates from the North-east Development Commission, National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and IDPs for their budget defence sessions.
Although invitation to cover the session was extended to all journalists under the Senate Press Corp (of which PREMIUM TIMES is part of), Mr Kabir said he did not want “unconventional journalists” at the meeting.
The reporters were seated at the hearing room an hour before the arrival of the committee members.
The lawmakers soon arrived alongside Mr Kabir.
Noticing a few reporters present, he began to ask for Identity Cards of the reporters.
