It has come to the notice of the Plateau State Government that there is a proliferation of fake documents flying about in the name of passes.

Some of such fake documents take the form of letters both photo copies and originals.

This attitude has contributed to frustrating the enforcement of the lock down exercise and the Presidential curfew across the State.

This has also put such persons on coalition course with enforcers of the Presidential and Executive orders in the State.

In the light of the above, Government calls upon all and sundry to note as follows:

1. That all passes issued by the state task force on COVID-19 are time bound and have expiry dates.
2. That any letter of exemption so certified by any organisation must be presented as original that as photo copies will not be accepted nor recognized.
3. That Personal Identification of persons so captured by the Executive Order of the Governor as being on essential duty suffices.
4. That the enforcers of the lock down order should take note and act accordingly.

Furthermore, let me use this opportunity to remind the public that the wearing of masks is compulsory. Failure to adhere attracts a penalty.

Commissioner of Information and Communication,
