The Presidency has recalled the State House correspondent of Punch newspaper, Olalekan Adetayo, who was expelled from the villa by President Buhari's Chief Security Officer CSO, Bashir Abubakar over a report he wrote on President Buhari's failing health which was published last Sunday

Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, who reacted to the news via his twitter handle, said the President's media office was not consulted before Adetayo was expelled.
