The Liberalist Centre for Education, a Nigeria-based libertarian think tank for human flourishing, has trained a two-day training for selected journalists on pro-freedom reporting.
The training, which focused on educating the public about the ideas of liberty through pro-freedom reporting, was part of the centre’s Journalism for Liberty project, funded by Atlas Network, a non-profit organisation which secures individual’s rights to economic and personal freedom globally.
Speaking during the training, the Executive Director of the organization, Abdullah Tijani, stated that the training was aimed at exposing the journalists to the ideas of liberty and the journalistic skills needed to promote the ideas in their reportage.
For his part, the Programme Director, Johnson Sanni, said apart from the training, the project will also feature the launching of a news magazine that focuses on publishing pro-liberty articles.
He explained that the fellows at the training will henceforth become contributors to the organisation’s news magazines and advocates of liberty through their reports.
Some of the journalists including Adedayo Muhammed-Bashir said the training opened their eyes to the true ideas of liberty, which will boost their journalistic work going forward.
Purity FM Correspondents, Alfred Ajayi and Uche Ndeke attended the training virtually.
