A student journalist, Adejumo Kabir, has launched a media hub for the training of campus journalists.
According to Kabir, the innitiave, ‘CampusPress Hub’, aims to oversee the training of students who have passion for journalism.
Speaking on why it became necessary to embark on the project, he said: “We realise that many students want to practise journalism on campus but do not really have the proper training to take them beyond. Also, journalism itself is all about making impact in your community and I understand clearly that my community at this present time is campus.”
Explaining how the training will be conducted, Kabir said it will be a two-day workshop on best practices of the profession where trainees will be taught about the ABCs of journalism and other core elements of the profession.
“The world has far gone beyond your course of study in school to become a journalist. There is a need for proper training. Also, considering this era of fake news, if campus journalists are well-groomed, they will prove a vehicle of virtue, truth and love.
