In order for democracy to thrive, there needs to be good journalism. Journalism helps separate fact from fiction, inform the public and make sure that we live in a society that is well-informed. Journalists hold those in power accountable and they are a check on an unchecked government. Join our Content Creation Academy
With the current political and social situation in Nigeria, the lack of Human Capacity Development, and suffering among the people, good, functioning journalism and media creation are paramount to better inform the citizens.
Democracy is a system of government where people participate in the law-making process. In the end, the democratic process is about bridging differences, thanks to good journalism and information media.
This is impossible without a solid base of information and analysis. Our democracy needs well-informed citizens making decisions about what’s best for all of us.
