Whistleblowers Protection Platform Calls for Application for Training Journalists on Investigative Journalism 

Henri Thulliez, Executive Director

The Platform to Protect Whistleblowers in Africa (PPLAAF), which offers technical, legal, and media assistance to whistleblowers in Africa, is calling for applications from Nigerian journalists for a training on investigative journalism and the pivotal role of whistleblowers in investigations aimed at equipping them.

PPLAAF notes that crimes such as corruption, money laundering, terrorism financing, and embezzlement of public funds significantly undermine the stability and development of a state and that whistleblowers, who uncover actions contrary to the public interest, play a crucial role by reporting them publicly or to the competent authorities during their professional activities.

The proposed training is billed to hold in Abuja, Nigeria from February 19 to 23, 2024.

Interested applicants should send their CV and a cover letter with the subject line: “Application for Journalist Training Abuja” by email to mariepaule@pplaaf.org on or before January 30, 2024. Ten journalists will be chosen to participate in the training.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to include a sample of their journalistic work.
