Nigerian online journalism has a new member. Known as Intervention, it defines itself as being about, after and beyond intervention. A statement by Adamu Umar, the Acting editor described the paper’s focus as “journalism in the service of collective survival” which it is to achieve through balancing of power.
According to the statement, there would be consistent mapping of what it called the different voices and the debates, the alternatives as well as the actors in the society so as to ensure win-win outcomes instead of winners and losers in the society.

Its choice of issues in reporting and style points to a high quality paper.
