Journalists in Nigeria are no strangers to attacks on the free press. Now, though, the industry faces a different kind of threat: A looming recession that is gutting newsrooms has been exacerbated by the pandemic. We need to rethink local news in a way that better serves communities across the country.
These emerging journalists in Nigeria care about public service and are covering stories that inform, engage, strengthen and serve their communities.
We’re working with TheCable and Premium Times, two independent, online newspapers, to improve fact checking efforts and fill coverage gaps around climate change, education, crime and justice and more.
We’re always looking for allies who believe in a sustainable and free press in Nigeria, especially for communities that need it the most.
