How A Reporter Was Denied Access To Cover Social Media Bill Hearing In The National Assembly:

A young Lady identified with the username @ProfUkay on Twitter has taken to her social account to lament over her denial to have access to the National Assembly where she was supposed to represent a body.

According to the young lady in her report a moments ago, she had arrived at the entrance gate of the Nigerian National Assembly but was asked to go back for dressing improperly.

She hinted that it was the men at the gate that stopped her from entering the Assembly. Meanwhile, according to her, she was supposed to represent her organisation @AmplifiedR to cover the public hearing of the Social Media Bill which was debated before the Assembly recently.

The reporter being unhappy with the development laments that if she had driven in with an official car that such would not have happened.

She further states that her gown which did not reveal any opening was condemned for not been excessively short.

Her words read; “Dear @nassnigeria what is your dress code policy for entering the National Assembly? Today I was denied access to cover the #socialmediabill public hearing for my organisation
@AmplifiedR on the grounds that I am indecently dressed.”

“This gown comes exactly to my knees yet it is tagged “too short”. Several people were astounded as I was denied access tag kept asking “which gown is too short. Do you know what short is”? #socialmediabill @AmplifiedR”
