About Us

THE CITIZEN is one of the leading credible Nigerian online newspapers founded to promote the fundamental principles of responsible media practice. We are a timely response to the growing demand for cheaper, faster and easily accessible media as the world veers towards digital platforms for news and information.

We are positioned to leverage on the increasing penetration of mobile telephony and the internet in Nigeria to provide the citizens with an alternative means to participation in governance and institutional affairs.

Our commitment to these values has been justified by the consistent growth of subscriptions to our service. Presently, THE CITIZEN enjoys the patronage of subscribers in Nigeria and abroad who receive our FREE daily newsletter, Executive Briefing. The number of visitors to our website for up-to-date news and intelligent interpretations of events and policies has continued to grow.
