I started my journalism career as a reporter for the New Nigerian Newspaper based in Kaduna State, Northwest Nigeria, after graduating with a Higher Diploma in journalism from International Institute of Journalism Abuja. In 2013, I transitioned into freelancing for local and international media organizations. I am a member of Investigative and Developmental journalists team based in Kaduna, Northern Nigeria. Our focus is mainly on rural reporting and development. Our reports led to several interventions in most of the rural communities reported in Kaduna State. I have received several awards, including the Courage in Journalism Award in recognition for my investigative report in Unguwar Kanti a local community of Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna state in the year 2016 from Africa Media Development Foundation. In December 2015 I received Bleeder's Pen Award from Hemophilia Foundation of Nigeria for my effort in creating Hemophilia Awareness in Local communities of Kaduna. In November 2016 I bagged developmental and community service award for community reporting from Kadpoly Students Entrepreneur group ( ENECTUS) . In early 2017, I received another award from Peace Revival and Reconciliation Foundation of Nigeria a Non-Governmental Organization for my efforts in peace and rural reporting. I developed an interest to join Rural Reporters because I share in its vision, passion, and concerns toward giving voice to people living in remote communities across Nigeria and Africa. I believe with my contribution to RR media platform, authorities attention will be drawn to take appropriate action towards focusing more on rural areas in Nigeria and Northern Nigeria in particular. I cover education, health, Water, and Environment.
