Nigerian Editors Reject National Assembly's Guidelines for Media

The Nigerian Guild of Editors has rejected the new guidelines for the accreditation of media organisations, journalists and correspondents reporting from the National Assembly, describing it as "primitive, undemocratic and blatantly anti-press and anti-people". According to Vanguard newspaper, parliament wants media houses to provide copies of two-year's-worth of income tax returns of journalists who want to be accredited.
