PCNI & VSF train New Media Practitioners in Borno


From December 11 -13, the Presidential Committee on North-East Initiative (PCNI) in collaboration with the Victims Support Fund conducted a three-day capacity building training workshop for 40 new media practitioners in Borno. The theme of the workshop is “Utilizing New Media for Humanitarian and Developmental Reportage.” While inaugurating the event, the Vice Chairman of PCNI and VSF, Tijjani M. Tumsah, said the training was designed to expose reporters to best practices in reporting and use of new media in information dissemination. He added that the training would assist in promoting hope, dignity, peaceful and harmonious coexistence in the North East. The VSF Director of Programmes, Professor Nana Tanko, disclosed that similar workshops will be conducted in the six states of the region to build capacity of practitioners and ensure that their reportage enhances the visibility of interventions on the ground.
At the close of the event, the participants received certificates on successful completion of the course, expressed appreciation to PCNI and the VSF for the initiative. Subsequent workshops will be held in Yobe and Adamawa states at dates that will be announced in future.
