GOCOP is a non-governmental, non-partisan, non-profit making organisation for the highest strata of working journalists who have attained the exalted position of Editors in the journalism profession and have delved into online publishing.

The primary objectives of the organisation are ensuring that online publishers uphold the tenets of journalism and provide a platform for peer review.

A statement by the Chairman of the Launch Committee, Chijama Ogbu, said: “It is our goal is to provide order in online media within Nigeria’s geographic space, which currently boasts of a high population of charlatans.

“We believe it is important to provide a platform for journalists in this business to come together to set barometers of compliance with the ethical codes of the journalism.”
