Three topnotch media professionals are set to train journalists in Nigeria at the forthcoming media training and workshop organized by Daria Media, a media company promoted by Kadaria Ahmed.
The three facilitators at the training aimed at correcting the anomalies of fake news reportage and unwholesome Public Relations are Kadaria Ahmed, former BBC journalist, editor of 234next, Straight Talk and The Core; Ben Williams of Beyond Broadcasting, a company that trains staff at Aljazeera, the BBC and many other media houses around the globe and Dapo Olorunyomi, founder of Premium Times.
In a statement issued by the company on Monday: “The Daria Workshop Series is a training platform for budding journalists; helping them to connect to the reality of journalism practice, clear out illusions and identify their unique niche and place in the continued existence of their field of endeavour.”
At the end of the training, three female participants will become recipients of the inaugural Mamman Marshall Scholarship for Women in Journalism. The scholarship is named after Kadaria Ahmed’s father who is described as a forward-thinking man well ahead of his times.
The statement further read that the training will drill participants on ways “to build commercially viable and sustainable media outfits as a means of circumventing issues of ethics, professionalism and partisanship.”
The training would hold in three Nigerian cities namely Kano, Uyo and Lagos. To participate in the training and become eligible to for a full undergraduate scholarship at the three participating schools; Bayero University Kano, Lagos State University and the University of Uyo, interested prospects can apply by visiting here.
