African Examiner Opens Nigeria OfficeFeatured, Latest News, News Saturday, December 21st, 2013
After six years of online publishing, the African Examiner, Nigeria’s reliable online daily news service has opened its Nigeria bureau office in Ogba, Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria.
At the opening of the new corporate office, the Publisher/Editor-in-Chief, Mr Sunday Fase, who was in Nigeria to open the office said “the office would further enhance our operations and ensure that we further provide quality news service to our numerous readers.”
His words “In 2007 when we started, it was not because there was a great financial opportunity; we did not establish the news service because there was a chance to gain great popularity and honour, but it did come about because we had the commitment to be the best.”
Mr Fase recalled that the idea was conceived in December 2007 in the City of Baltimore, Maryland in United States adding that “the founding team knew from the very beginning it would not be easy. Yet, our commitment to provide responsible online journalism was resolute.”
According to him, what the team brought to the table then was that online journalism should equally be practiced like the traditional journalism where Journalists report the truth without prejudice or favor and online media practitioners practice within the confine of the universal ethics of the journalism.
“We are happy today that as one of the pioneers of that ideology, online journalism in Nigeria and indeed in Africa has become a part of media strategy for big multinationals and corporations as well as government agencies to effectively showcase their Programs and services to their local and global audience and customers.” he noted.
The office, equipped with modern communication gadgets and experienced journalists will serve as African Examiner’s operational base for editorial and marketing services in Nigeria and West Africa.
