The Campus Journalism Dialogue, CJD, is set to host two celebrated Nigerian journalists, Lekan Otufodunrin and Ajibola Amzat, for a Tweet Chat on Friday, in commemoration of 2020 Worker’s Day.
The CJD Twitter Chat is a flagship webinar series hosted by the Youths Digest, with support from the Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre, CISLAC.
According to the Youths Digest editor, Gidado Shuaib, in a statement on Wednesday, said the session is aimed at engaging campus journalists on the occasion of this year’s May Day celebrations.
Mr Shuaib disclosed that Mr Otufodunrin, a former online editor of The Nation newspaper and now the Executive Director of Media Career Services, will speak on ‘Tips for Building a Successful Career in Journalism’.
He added that Mr Amzat, editor of the International Centre for Investigative Reporting, ICIR, will engage Journalists on ‘Investigating the COVID-19 Pandemic: A Guide for Inspiring Young Journalists’.
“Campus journalists, who will be participating in the 3 pm event on Friday, can send in their questions and also tweet @lotufodunrin @TheICIR and @YouthsDigest.
“Questions and comments can also be forwarded via #CJDChat hashtag,” a statement from the Youths Digest read in part.
Recall that a few weeks ago, the platform had organised a series of online media training and seminars for campus journalists across the country.
The seminars, which were adjudged insightful, were facilitated by prominent journalists, Digital security experts and media professionals.
