My Media Story: Prioritise the Mental Health of Journalists in Nigeria – Linda Nwabuwa Akhigbe
The Nigeria National Assembly, similar to both the USA Parliamentary and the UK House of Lords is the number one legislative body in the country. Many Nigerians watch their activities daily from the Red and Green Chambers while at home, at work, or on the move on their mobile phones.
Linda Akhigbe, is a frontline journalist with Channels TV, who for the past ten years, has covered the National Assembly as the Senate/Political Correspondent. She also doubles as a news presenter and heads the presentation department in the station’s office in Abuja. With her responsibility covering the NASS, she produces and presents The GAVEL, a weekly current affairs programme focusing on the Federal Legislature, which many Nigerians keen about the goings-on in the NASS would not miss.
She has insights and great depth of knowledge about the NASS that is far reaching. As our Special Guest in this Edition of the #NWiM Nigerian Women in Media Project by LightRay Media, she gives us an Exclusive insight about her journey in the media and the Nigerian Media landscape.
