He said:

“In other parts of the world, you cannot just go and lodge in any hotel without valid identification. However, this is not the case in Nigeria. We are introducing this policy as part of our commitment to security of the citizens.”

“Sokoto has enjoyed peace but we will not relent on our oars, we will continue to do more to support our security agencies. If you are a foreigner, you must present your international passport with a valid Nigerian visa. If you are a Nigerian, the hotels will demand one of drivers' licence, international passport or National ID Card.”

The rule is expected to take force next year.
