Editor-in-Chief and Founder of ENigeria Newspaper, Desmond Ike-Chima, has emerged winner at the 17th edition of the Nigeria Media Night-Out Awards 2023 in the Editor of the Year award category.

The Nigeria Media Night-Out Awards is a foremost award dedicated to the celebration of outstanding journalists and media practitioners across the country and this year’s edition was not an exception.

He said “I want to especially dedicate this award to my son, Kamsiyochukwu whose birth marked the beginning of an upward trajectory in my life. And to my respected colleagues in the media whose dedication and doggedness have contributed immensely to the sustenance of professional journalism in Nigeria. Additionally, I want to also thank the award organizers for finding me worthy of this award and most especially God Almighty for making this possible”.

Ike-Chima parades a classic investigative journalism history that metamorphosed the game-changer in today’s online journalism practice. He also possesses great storytelling skills; a nose for the truth as well as an excellent track record as a staff reporter and editor before founding his ENigeria Newspaper – a tabloid and online publication founded in 2008.
