OUR STORY

AprokoGist Story

We know NEWS, News flows in our veins.

At AprokoGist, we believe there is a better way to tell a story (The Aproko way). A more valuable, Innovative, less invasive way where readers are given Quality and the same time preserving truth and transparency of what they read. We’re obsessively passionate about it, and our mission is to help people get absolutely the best and trusted news streams that cannot be found anywhere in the world. We focus on giving our readers the most transparent and verified news. It’s one of the hardest part of telling a story here in Africa and in the world at large. It is well known that, The News industry is the least transparent aspects of information sourcing online, and we see that as an opportunity: We’re excited to simplify NEWS for everyone through our innovative blog, education, and community News Telling.

 

Our Misson

To provide the most accurate and undiluted news, While preserving standard and integrity.In this part of the world (Africa), Journalist and News tellers are persecuted For telling accurate news not diluted by political influence. So here at AprokoGist, We have a common Goal to be able to tell the story And at same time saving our face from political bombardment. And we plan to achieve this, though troublesome and mischievous task by Introducing a new form of news telling we call the COMMUNITY NEWS TELLING.

 Our founding

AprokoGist was founded by Emmanuel Ikechukwu in 2017. It was called AprokoGist247, and started as a blog and an online community where some of the world’s best news headlines are shared. We launched the YOUTUBE channel called AprokoTube in 2018 to aid our visual News telling.

Where Does the Name “AprokoGist” Come From?

AprokoGist, Also AprokoGist247, was inspired by the Nigeria “Aproko Tatafo” which simply describes a person (s) which involves in spreading news from on home or place to another. — To us it simply means sharing News at great speed and engaging Our communities and Readers with openness and integrity. From the very beginning, we felt passionately about bringing that same integrity to the frustratingly opaque NEWS industry.
