The acting Director of Parliament’s Public Affairs Department, Kate Addo, issued a circular which prevents journalists from accessing MPs’ offices at the Job 600. Per the new directive, journalists wanting to access Job 600 would have to seek clearance from the Public Affairs Department before being allowed into the building.
Meanwhile journalists have described the directive as offensive and unfortunate after efforts by the leadership of the Parliamentary Press Corps to reverse the directive reportedly failed.
