The Cable Newspaper Journalism Foundation (CNJF), also known as the Cable Foundation, with support from Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA), is calling on keen students from higher institutions across the north-central region of Nigeria to apply for the second edition of its two-day capacity building workshop for campus journalists.


Cable Foundation, a partner of TheCable newspaper, is a not-for-profit organisation using the vehicle of journalism to advance transparency and accountability in government. It is a subscriber to “solutions journalism” – a school that believes in rigorous reporting of positive response to problems and challenges.

The training workshop, implemented under its Campus Civic Media Campaign (CCMC), aims to hone the skills of campus journalists in up-to-date trends in investigative journalism, fact-checking and data reporting.

In many ways, technology has impacted negatively on ethical and professional journalism. This is evident in the proliferation of websites, blogs, posting fake news and unverified contents.

CCMC thus aims to train students of higher learning so that they can use their communication platforms to present credible news and informed commentaries, as well as demand for accountability and good governance using the tool of investigative journalism.


Students, with flair for reporting and writing, from across tertiary institutions in the north-central: Benue, Kogi, Kwara, Nasarawa, Niger and Plateau states and FCT.
