IBADAN - The Oyo State Council of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) has warned members to stop all physical interviews to prevent being infected by coronavirus (COVID-19).
The council in a statement jointly signed by its chairman, Mr. Ademola Babalola and secretary, Mr. Sola Oladapo, and made available to newsmen on Sunday in Ibadan warned journalists to be cautious in performing their roles as essential service providers, saying the extent at which the virus was spreading is very alarming.
“Truly, our services are very essential at this period when the world is ravaged by coronavirus (COVID-19). The public looks on to us for information on this global pandemic.
“Our job leaves us more exposed to the ravaging coronavirus. The rate at which this coronavirus is spreading has become very alarming and it is no respecter of anyone.
“As journalists, we must be very careful of how we carry out our duties without being infected,” it said.
NUJ commended members for their services at this trying period, praying that God would continue to protect them from all forms of infections.
