About Us

Nigeria is one of the fastest developing countries in sub-saharan Africa, and the requirement for information from Nigerians at home and in the diaspora is gargantuan.

The Herald is a digital newspaper and magazine dedicated to providing qualitative reports about Nigeria, and the international community to Nigerians both at home and in the diaspora.

Founded not long after the fuel subsidy protests of 2012, the Herald positioned to provide Nigerians with an unbiased reportage of daily events that touch the minds, and hearts of average Nigerians.

The onset of the knowledge economy has created a need for valuable information in real time and at the touch of a button. Our goal is to fill that gap and keep Nigerians in sync with the pulse of the nation.
