Nigeria: No Extension in Media Accreditation Deadline

Journalists hoping to be a part of the Asaba 2018 African Senior Athletics Championships and are yet to apply for the media accreditation have been advised to do so without further hesitation.

In a statement issued by Olukayode Thomas, the Head of Media and Publicity for the Asaba 2018 championship, he reiterated that there will be no extension to the June 30 deadline date announced when the accreditation process officially opened nearly two months ago.

According to Thomas, the Local Organsing Committee are working round the clock to ensure that all accredited journalists are provided with an enabling environment to make them carry out their duties out without any form of stress.

He said: "Actually, the response by journalists across the continent and beyond have been impressive but you know some people just like doing last minute rush.

"We are going to be firm on the June 30 deadline we have announced from the start. So, we enjoin all interested journalists to go to the website and complete the simple application process"

The accreditation process can be easily done by visiting http://caaasaba2018.com.ng/ media-accreditation/ to fill the form online.

Interested journalists are expected to fill out one registration form for each member of their team; as a group or team application will not be accepted.

Already, it has been stated that Non-Rights Holders will only be allowed to bring cameras and/or recording equipment onto the event site for the purpose of carrying out non-live reports.

There will be no access with this camera to the stands or any location with view to the live action.

Also, the deadline for booking accommodation in the official media hotels is June 30, 2018, while for Media Friends outside Nigeria, the accreditation will serve as their visa.

The Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba, Delta State, will host the Asaba 2018 African Senior Athletics Championships from August 1-5
