It’s sometimes difficult to introduce oneself, isn’t it? Anyway, I am a professionally qualified theatre, media and development communication specialist with about 15 years combined experience in print and broadcast journalism, management, international development, marketing, strategic planning, social research, public/client and media relations, advocacy and campaigns, knowledge building, consultancy and event management. I am also a professional trainer, publicist, writer, speaker, team builder and manager.
I have worked with and consulted for several reputable organisations including: BBC World Service Trust, Epos Health Consultants, Germany (managers of the European Union EU – PRIME project), World Health Organisation, PATHS 2 (a DFID funded project), Ipas, the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA), Nigeria and Vision Media Services operators of Vision 92.1 FM, a development radio station based in Abuja, Nigeria.
I currently run Atmosphere Communications Limited, www.atmospherecomms.com, a communications and media company based in Nigeria. We do a lot of media productions and trainings. Our future plan is to set up development radio and television stations, we believe in the power of the media to aid change.
I also consult/represent companies/individuals looking for trustworthy and reliable presence in Nigeria, and am open to alliances with other businesses. If you happen to drop by Nigeria or London, do give me a buzz and I would be glad to meet with you.

Interestingly, your observation is not limited to your country. As you stated, I think this obtains in many democracies. However, I think what obtains more in my country is that the "virile" media is seen and treated as the opposition to the government in power. Therefore members of the "virile" media are not liked by the government. But by and large, the media here help to set the pace for change
Agreed. But in my country, the media is veering away from its noble role of effecting social change. It is frustrating to see the media concentrate on doubling and tripling profits by sensationalization of stories, or giving more than the due share of reportage to gloss and glamour. I guess these are the pitfalls of having a free press in a democracy where everyone has the right to shout aloud!
