Olu Onemola, the Special Assistant on New Media to the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has revealed that the Senate will investigate the new guideline for journalists at the National Assembly.

He said that his principal remains committed to the freedom of the press.

Onemola stated this in a series of tweets in response to the alleged new guidelines for journalists in the National Assembly.

He stated that Saraki’s antecedents as the Chairman of the 8th National Assembly show that he has always believed in the right of journalists to operate unhindered in order to promote transparency.

The New Media aide emphasized that the purported issuance of the controversial guidelines would be promptly investigated.

According to him, “The attention of the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has just been drawn to a story that is circulating on social media about the National Assembly issuing new guidelines to journalists.

“These alleged guidelines have not emanated from either the Senate President or the Speaker and will be promptly investigated.

“The public should note that the 8th National Assembly has been committed to the freedom of the press as exemplified by its work to bring governance closer to the people through live streams and live tweets.

“This is because the leadership of the 8th National Assembly believes strongly in the freedom of the press and in carrying the Nigerian public along. Hence, the Senate President and all his colleagues will continue to work to ensure that these freedoms remain unhindered.”
