Dangote Trains S/West Journalists In Digital Reporting Skills





On Wednesday, Dangote Industries Limited began training 50 journalists from South Western states in "ethics, skills, and personal qualities for reporting in the digital age."


The Centre Financial Journalism, powered by the Dangote Group, hosted a two-day capacity building workshop in Abeokuta, Ogun State.


Azad Nawabbudin, Plant Director of Dangote Cement PLC, Ibese, stated that the training was part of Dangote Group's business strategy to impact journalists, who are seen as essential stakeholders.


Nawabbudin urged journalists to use digital reporting since it will undoubtedly improve their reporting while also allowing them to reach a broader audience.


“More than ever before, the Nigerian media desires more education, intellect and skills to deal with issues as they are always under severe pressure to deliver since the emergence of social media. Little wonder, some media practitioners have resorted to sensationalism, blowing issues out of proportion without confirmation in the quest to meet deadlines and get attention and patronage,” he said.


Wale Olanrewaju, the state chairman of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), and his Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), Mrs Seun Boye, praised Dangote Group for the training and challenged other cooperating entities to follow suit.
