Producer: Vivian Onovwewhare

Date: January 4, 2024.
Fact Finders is a programme brought to you by The International Centre for Investigative Reporting (ICIR) in collaboration with Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), to empower you with essential knowledge on how to recognize and effectively counter misinformation and disinformation narratives in Nigeria. This programme is powered by The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Abuja.
Introduction: In the last quarter on this programme, we have been addressing the issue of fake news in our society, shared examples and different ways to identify them. Today, we will look back at major misinformation and disinformation narratives that trended in the country last year and also proffer ways to tackle information disorder effectively this year.
To do justice to that, we have with us in the studio: Bamas Victoria, the editor of the International Centre for Investigative Reporting (ICIR) and Kemi Busari, the editor of Dubawa in Nigeria, joining us virtually.
