Preparation of press cards in Bobo-Dioulasso: Taking photos now on site

Bobo-Dioulasso: The Higher Communication Council (CSC) organized on Friday February 9, 2024, in Bobo-Dioulasso, a photo session of press cards and passes for the benefit of candidate journalists from West. Journalists from the West will no longer travel to Ouagadougou to take photos of the press card or pass. This operation is now a reality in Bobo-Dioulasso. Indeed, on Friday February 9, 2024, the Superior Council of Communication (CSC) organized a photo session for the benefit of candidates from the greater West for the press card or the leave. 'Thanks to the Association of Western Media Professionals, the committee for issuing the press card, tailoring is now possible here in Bobo-Dioulasso,' informed Western regional director of the CSC, Evariste Bationo. This operationalization, added Mr. Bationo, is also partly thanks to collaboration with the National Identification Office (ONI). The objective of this initiative, according to him, is to make it easier for journalists to quickly obtain press cards. 'Normally a journalist who works in the field and who does not have a press card should not be able to work,' insisted Evariste Bationo. With the current security context in Burkina Faso, continued the DRO/CSC, it is not excluded that in the future, each journalist will be required to have a press card. This Friday, February 9, there were 19 media players from the Hauts-Bassins region at the Western regional directorate of the CSC for the very first photo shoot. 'This is a very important event and a relief for us, because many of them will have a press card with this decentralization of photo taking,' convinced the publication director and president of the Association. of the private press publishers of Hauts-Bassins, Moutamou Kani, also publishing director of L'Express du Faso.
