When a team of top flight media practitioners -- journalists, marketers, sales directors; indeed, the entire mix -- met on January 5, 2014, to review media practice in Nigeria, a conclusion became ineluctable: We must stop identifying the weaknesses of the items on offer and give Nigerians the real deal. The Morning Mail was thus born, to give the country a newspaper that is truly committed to the highest ideals of journalism. It is yet an evolving newspaper, but it is currently being piloted by Oluyinka Olujimi (LL.M UCLan, L.B., B.L.) as Publisher/CEO; respected ace cartoonist and administrator, Moses Ebong, as Executive Director (Brands and Marketing); and veteran political editor, Akinjide Akintola (Managing Editor), among others.
