Pan-Atlantic University (PAU) was happy to receive Ms. Stephanie Busari who runs CNN’s bureau in Nigeria/West Africa and oversees CNN’s Africa output on digital to the M.Sc. career forum which took place on the 18th of April 2018.

The forum provided an opportunity for Ms. Busari to address issues around how journalists can change the African narrative through focus and conscientious reporting. She emphasised on the need to put accuracy over speed in ensuring that unverified news is not circulated.

Ms. Busari is the first Nigerian to head a CNN multi-platform bureau anywhere in the world. In honour of her 10th anniversary as a journalist with CNN, the full-time master’s students of the School of Media and Communication (SMC) presented her with a cake and a portrait photograph of her session with the class.
