There are three roads every human or organization must pass through to fulfill his or its purpose ; the road well travelled, the road often travelled and the road not travelled at all. Crest Newspaper is borne out of the need to travel through the road that many have not used. In doing this, the news medium is out to bend the rules, alter information flow and provide alternative voice for people hitherto considered as unwanted. The focal point of the newspaper is to critically assess and report happenings in the society in order to cause the needed change for a better society.
The vision of CREST is to serve as, “ a veritable platform for in-depth investigations, balanced reportage as well as alter the top-bottom communication flow in our society.” CREST shall be a platform where those in government and the led have equal opportunity to air their opinions, suggestions and grievances without impinging on one another’s right.
CRESR is a product of young minds coming together to cause a revolution in journalism practice by churning out good stories, scintillating opinions, captivating features, analyses and in-depth investigations that will not only set agenda for a better society but right the wrongs among the ruling class. Without any political leaning, CREST editorial team would leave no stone unturned in unraveling the truth behind every story. This shall be done within the precincts of law and ethical standard of journalism.
Today 29th May, 2021 marks the beginning of CREST. The paper will grace the news stand every Monday and will begin second edition after the review of market forces. In as much as we celebrate this new entry, we celebrate you our reader. We cherish the time you spend to go through our stories. Thank you.
