A final year student journalist of the Obafemi
Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Adejumo Kabir has
unveiled a book on best practices of campus
journalism.

The book, titled “Campus Journalism
Beginners Handbook” according to its author
Mr Adejumo Kabir, is a guide that will help
student journalists report their campuses
better and prepare them for journalism after
school.

In the foreword of the book, the Executive
Publisher of Premium Times, Dapo Olorunyomi,
noted the author had done the broad practice
of journalism in Nigeria a great service by
putting together and publishing what, to his
mind, is the first practice guide on the hitherto
“hidden” genre of campus journalism.
Another top Media Career Specialist, Lekan
Otufodunrin also wrote that the opportunities
available for campus journalists of this
generation are much and there is a need to
ensure that those engaged in the art maximise
their potentials.

Kehinde Ayantunji, Chairman of Nigeria Union
of Journalists in Osun, said the book is an
intelligent investment and a huge consolation
about the predicament of the Nigeria youths
particularly the educated ones in tertiary
institutions.

Kabir is a freelance journalist for Premium
Times with dozens of investigative journalism
awards to his name at the national and
international level. He was named finalist at
the 2018 Africa Check Awards (Student
category) in South Africa.

Early this year, he launched the Campus Press
Hub; an initiative offering training and
consultancy services on best practices of
campus journalism to students across Nigerian
institutions.

This book is the second handbook guide for
campus journalists after a book titled: “The
Road Before the Fourth Estate” co-authored
by Kunle Adebajo and Kanyinsola Olorunnisola,
who are now both graduates of University of
Ibadan.
