Journalists Should Use Their ID As Pass—Lai Mohammed

Media workers and journalists in FCT, Lagos and Ogun States have been advised to use their valid identity cards to access their work places and assignment venues during the 14-day lockdown.

This was said in a statement by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, in Abuja on Monday.

He said the clarification became necessary in view of the inadequate time to properly accredit working journalists in the FCT and the affected states.

He stated that members of the media were expected to continue providing essential services during the lockdown to keep Nigerians well updated on the COVID-19 pandemic.

“All working journalists and other media staff in Lagos and Ogun states, as well as the federal capital territory (FCT), have been advised to use their valid identity cards to access their places of work and assignment venues during the 14-day lockdown directed by the President in the two states and the FCT.
