Presidential Primary: Journalists Denied Access To Venue As APC Fails To Release Tags

Journalists assigned to cover the presidential primary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have not gained access to the Eagle Square in Abuja, as the Governor Abdullahi Sule-led Media and Publicity sub-committee has yet to release accreditation tags.

According to the programme of events, the exercise is to commence by 10am with the arrival of delegates.

Media houses which nominated their staff to cover the event had written letters two weeks ago on the directive of the party.

The APC correspondents who are always on the ground at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja have not been given their tags either.

Journalists, who arrived at the Eagle Square in the early hours of Tuesday, remain outside as security operatives denied them entry.
