Our widely popular YNaija FrontPage series has been syndicated to Leadership and Independent newspapers, on Saturdays and Sundays respectively.
The YNaija Frontpage is a daily op-ed series on the sites front-end that presents exciting voices on national issues, from the perspective of young leaders. Taking direct inspiration from the wildly popular Thisday BackPage, it provides informed, authoritative opinions on current issues in a way that guides and/or influences a generation interested in a Nigeria that works.
Over the past five months, YNaija.com has distinctly become known as an issues-compass—with opinion, editorials, features, analysis, commentary and essays that focus on the issues, debates and conversations that are boiler-plate for a now-aware youth population.
Now, the columnists for the YNaija Frontpage—Tolu Ogunlesi, Iyinoluwa Aboyeji, Japheth Omojuwa, Akintunde Oyebode, Kathleen Ndongmo, Temie Giwa, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu—and their incisive, thoughtful writing will now be in hard copy.
Stories remain will still remain syndicated at www.cp-africa.com, uploaded 24 hours after the articles are published on YNaija.com.
The YNaija Frontpage columnists join a stellar cast of thinkers already writing regularly for YNaija.com that include Chude Jideonwo, ‘Gbenga Sesan, Amara Nwakpa, Joy Bewaji, Ferdinand Adimefe, amongst others.
The syndication starts this week, so go grab your paper from your local vendor.
