Working Legally and Internationally as a Nigerian Journalist (1996-2011)

The following message is for everyone in lightstalkers.org, Nov. 11 etc.
I was ‘lucky’ to have the experience to start out asa journalist with ‘The Turkish Daily News’ in Istanbul, Turkey while I was thee as a member og the Nigerian NGO team attending the United Nations Habitat II conference there.

Three years later I moved to Geneva, Switzerland after getting a job to work as Times Publications, London, UK correspondent in the UN at Geneva from ’999 till 2007. This was a part of my career that increased the number of countries I visited to 30, from Sweden to South Africa.

It all went well because there is hope to do more and this is an experience I will love to share here as I do on other fora.

I’m retired to work on memoirs and books plus, hopefully, a few documentaries and wow… maybe an autobiography.

I hope there will be enough after this message to spur a meeting of lightstalkers in Nigeria or, at least a Nigerian lightstalkers page… I’m looking forward to an event for only the weekend starting 31 Jan 2014.

The discussions are just starting… welcome…

Note: There will be additional messages, updates and news in the coming weeks… :-) Peace Out!
