SPECIAL: Happy One Month Anniversary at Parallel Facts

Dear incredible readers and the Parallel Facts family,

Today is a momentous one for all of us; it’s officially our one-month anniversary of Parallel Facts online newspaper. It is with great joy and pride that we reflect on the remarkable journey we have embarked upon together in the last month.

In just one-month, Parallel Facts has evolved from a mere idea into a force to be reckoned with in the media landscape of Nigeria and Africa. Our dedicated team, consisting of talented individuals from various fields, has poured their hearts and souls into this venture. From the brilliant minds behind our technology and graphics to the strategic thinkers shaping our business to the tireless editors and writers who work day and night to deliver the news, let’s not forget our unsung heroes, the ghost workers who have made invaluable contributions behind the scenes. Each and every one of you deserve our heartfelt appreciation.

When we started Parallel Facts, we had a simple goal: to tell the truth, no matter how difficult it may be. We wanted to provide our readers with accurate and unbiased information so that they could make informed decisions about their lives. This we have been able to do these past few days, albeit with criticism from the hegemons in Nigeria that are afraid of a shift. This enormous sacrifice, for us at Parallel Facts, is not too big to implement for a better and more productive working society.

Together, with the support of the management and well-meaning Nigerians, we have achieved extraordinary milestones. Over the past month, Parallel Facts has published over 400 articles, capturing the attention of an astounding one million followers on social media. But it doesn’t end there. We have gone beyond merely reporting news; our editorials have fostered national cohesion, bringing people together and emphasising our shared values and aspirations as a nation.

One of our proudest moments came with the groundbreaking success of our first Twitter space. Over 222,000 people tuned in, shattering records and making it the eighth-largest gathering of its kind in the world and the very first in Africa. This achievement is a testament to the power of our platform and the relevance of the stories we tell.

Parallel Facts has quickly emerged as Nigeria’s fastest-growing online news platform. Our commitment to presenting mind-boggling editorials, conducting thorough investigative reporting, and presenting news without the taint of propaganda has resonated with our audience. We firmly believe in the power of facts, and our unwavering dedication to delivering accurate, reliable information will continue to drive us forward.

Today, as we celebrate our one-month anniversary, we also reiterate our unwavering commitment to our mission. We aim to be the number one media platform in Nigeria and Africa, telling the stories of our people and showcasing the remarkable potential of our continent. We are determined to bring information to our audience with a simple click, making knowledge accessible and empowering individuals to be informed citizens.

None of this would be possible without the support of our readers, whose trust and engagement have been the cornerstones of our success. We are deeply grateful for your continued support and promise to remain steadfast in our dedication to serving you.

In conclusion, I would like to express my utmost gratitude to the incredible team at Parallel Facts. Your hard work, passion, and unwavering belief in our vision have propelled us to great heights. Together, we have achieved wonders in just one month, and I have no doubt that the coming months and years will bring even greater triumphs.

Cheers to Parallel Facts, the embodiment of exceptional journalism and the catalyst for positive change. May we continue to shine a light on the truths, the possibilities, and the untold stories that shape our nation and our continent.

Thank you, and here’s to a future filled with limitless possibilities!
