Joseph Agbro

After earning an Economics degree from Delta State University, Abraka, I've worked as a print journalist with The Nation newspaper for the past 12 years, reporting arts, business and entertainment. 

Despite coming into the profession by 'mistake', I've come to recognise and love journalism's inherent power in communicating information, entertaining and shaping of ideas.

However, in the midst of the fear and fierce competition between social media and traditional media, it is my belief that responsible journalism is not death-bound. And to better the world today, my goal is to continually put my media skills to the test in providing clarity with fact-based stories.
