The Centre for Financial Journalism [CFJ] has been launched in Lagos to train and retrain a sizeable number of Nigerian journalists in different aspects of financial journalism every year.

Mr. Ray Echebiri, Chief Executive Officer of the Centre, said the vision of CFJ is to be the prime capacity-building platform for financial journalism practice in Nigeria while its mission remains to raise the standard of the practice in the country via quality training programmes and research.

The Centre said its motive remains to sharpen the knowledge of journalists to fully understand the dynamics of the Nigerian economy, workings of the financial markets and intricacies of the real sector.

“The major objective is to produce highly skilled financial journalists who can convert information and data into economic intelligence for the benefit of Nigerians and businesses.”
