The Nigerian Tribune is the oldest surviving private newspaper in Nigeria.
Established in November, 1949 by one of Africa’s foremost nationalists, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Nigerian Tribune was structured, since inception, to cater for the interest of the common people.

In Nigerian Tribune, we have continued to project the ideas and visions of our founder, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, which are to create a just and egalitarian Nigerian society, re-generate the spirit of altruism and nationalism in Nigerians by promoting the idea of nationhood.
Our principal goal, which has sustained our irrepresible, progressive spirit, is to remain the best newspaper with unassailable quality of value-added service in news gathering and information dissemination to every Nigerian.
As the tribune - mouth-piece – of the common man, we have established a tradition of excellence in the discharge of our editorial responsibility to the people of Nigeria, while still sustaining the spirit of an indivisible nation.
We have maintained our deep-seated commitment to the common cause of our dear nation for the goodwill and prosperity of Nigerians. We have a track-record of being fearless in the face of intimidation.
