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.”
