Daily Trust Foundation trains journalists in broadcast investigation

Journalists in Nigeria have been charged to imbibe modern techniques to upscale their skill to produce quality investigative reporting for the betterment of society.

This was the thrust of three-day training in broadcast investigation for journalists drawn from various media organisations in the country organised by Daily Trust Foundation with the support of MacArthur Foundation.

Speaking at the event, the acting Chief Executive Officer of Media Trust, publishers of Daily Trust and other titles, Nura Daura, urged journalists to go beyond ordinary reporting to painstakingly carry out investigations that would stand them out.

Daura said, “Everybody can go on social media to post either correct or fake news, but when it comes to investigative journalism, work has to be done before you can come up with it. That is something that nobody can do unless someone has invested his time and resources and commitment. That is why we are focusing on that area.”

The Chief Executive Officer of Trust TV, Ibrahim Shehu, charged journalists to be brave and meticulous in telling the right story through evidence-based investigative reporting with good audio and clear images.

“Investigation tells people what people want to hide. Journalists must be brave and meticulous. They have to research enough. It’s about evidence. Journalists should do good stories for the good of all,” Shehu noted.

The Director, Daily Trust Foundation, Theophilus Abbah, said the training was aimed at building the capacity of Nigerian journalists to do compelling broadcast investigative reporting with good visuals.
