Boost your capacity in social media, expert charges journalists


Director of Journalism Clinic, Mr Taiwo Obe has tasked Nigerian journalists to boost their capacity by maximising the use of social media in news gathering and reporting.

Obe threw the challenge, in Abuja on Saturday during a training on “Rethinking Content” for journalists.

He pointed out that some Nigerian journalists were not making the best use of the social media to boost their reportage.


[penci_blockquote style=”style-2″ align=”none” author=””]“What do you have a mastery of that you are not getting returns from? The trend must change, rethink and add value to your reportage.[/penci_blockquote]

He challenged journalists to re-think better ways of doing things in their profession.

“Readers no longer get their news the next day via delivery lorries and news-stands. They have iPhones and Facebook accounts that buzz as soon as an event happens”.

“You must be the one starting a conversation because we live in a world of conversations,” he charged.

The Managing Director of Fidelity Bank Plc, Mr. Nnamdi Okonkwo, who also spoke during the event said the engagement platform was to help in building capacity for the media and to complement the efforts of their employers.

Okonkwo, whose firm bankrolled the training, was represented by the Divisional Head, Brand and Communications, Mr Charles Aigbe.

According to him, the training was targeted at 100 journalists in the print, radio and television, adding that sponsorship by the bank was part of its commitment to support excellence in media practice.
