Lockdown: Your ID Card is Your Pass, Minister Tells Journalists

All working journalists and other media staff in Lagos and Ogun statesas well as the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) had 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.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Monday, the Minister of Information
and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said the clarification became necessary in view of the inadequate time to properly accredit working journalists in the affected states and the FCT during the period.

He said members of the media are expected to continue to provide
essential services during the lockdown, in order to keep Nigerians
well updated on the COVID-19 pandemic.
