Bolstering Nigerian Election Reporting

By Africa Media Matters






We hear from the Nigerian Union of Journalists about the challenges facing its members and from IWPR’s Veronica Oakeshott on how these were addressed through training workshops and story production. Also British journalism professor Ivor Gaber and Lanre Arogundade, the director of the Lagos-based International Press Centre, discuss the programme’s election-related news service, Nigerian Election News Report, which assisted participants with their reporting of the ballot, and consider the role the initiative can play in the future.
