National Conference May Ban ‘Unfriendly’ Media Houses From Covering Proceedings

confabThe National Conference has proposed to invoke the relevant section of its procedure rules to revoke accreditation granted any media house that publishes what it considers as, “unfair and offensive” report.

This is stated under Order 14-Miscellaneous of the National Conference Procedure Rules 2014 which was distributed to delegates on Thursday.

The rules says, “The Conference may withdraw approval to the representative of any media to attend the sitting of the conference if the medium publishes a report of the proceedings which the Conference considers unfair, offensive and not a true reflection of what transpired”.

The Conference Assistant Secretary, Communications, Mr. James Akpandem, had at the inaugural sitting of the conference last Tuesday, asked delegates to lodge complaints of misreport against any media house at the secretariat.
