A three-day Project review meeting and training workshop on investigative journalism for anti corruption and accountability, organised by Wadata Media and Advocacy Centre (WAMAC), an NGO, with the support of MacArthur Foundation, has ended in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
The programme which began on Friday 3rd March had investigative journalists selected across all the six geo-political zones of the country as participants.
In his address to the participants, Africa Director of Mac Arthur Foundation, Dr. Kole Shettima commended the journalists for volunteering to take up the fight against corruption through their participation on the investigative journalism project and urged them to do more in that regard.
Speaking with Comfort FM Reporter Anthony Esin at Top Rank Hotel, Area Eleven, Garki, Abuja, venue for the programme, the Executive Director and Project Manager of WAMAC, Zubairu Idris said the training was particularly for appraisal of the performance of the various teams on the project.
Participants at the training were charged to increase their campaigns against corruption in all the strata of society while they also shared their experiences, achievements, success, and challenges during the previous year.
