The Editor Daily, Nigerian Chronicle, Florence Oluohu has advised journalists to be factual in their reportage adding that accurateness is the cheapest way to credibility.

Ms. Oluohu who was lecturing at the 6th edition of CrossRiverWatch Capacity Building Workshop for journalists insisted that practitioners and their media houses will save themselves a lot of headache if they desist from inaccuracies in their report.

“You the journalist should ask questions when not sure of information gotten. You can reach out to the organization or persons interviewed for accurateness when not sure”, she maintained.

Mrs. Florence who was speaking on the topic “Editorial Expectations” said that among other things, the journalist should be able to think fast and work under pressure while also having the “nose for news”.

She gave other editorial expectations as; objectivity, brevity, good command of English, simplicity, good sense of judgment, ability to adopt to media technology as they unfold etc.

The CrossRiverWatch capacity building training for journalists holds every Saturday for budding journalists at the Corporate Headquarters, No. 2 Ndidem Usang Iso (Marian) Road, Calabar between 3:30pm – 5:30pm.
