Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project has filed a lawsuit against President Bola Tinubu over the unlawful ban and withdrawal of the accreditations of twenty five journalists from covering the Presidential Villa.

The suit followed the expiration of a 48- hour ultimatum issued by SERAP to the Federal Government, to withdraw the ban or face legal action.

SERAP urged the president, to publicly instruct the officials in the presidential villa to allow journalists and media houses, freely do their job and discharge their constitutional duty of holding those in power to account.

It could be recalled that the Federal Government in August, withdrew the accreditation tags of some journalists and media houses from covering activities at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The affected journalists were simply told at the main gate of the Presidential Villa to submit their accreditation tags.

Meantime, no date has been fixed for the hearing of the suit.
