Founded on November 21st, 2015, and launched on January 1st, 2016, Critical Times News is an online news outlet founded by Critical Media Group. CMG, is a group comprising of young vibrant, dedicated and passionate Nigerians who are concerned about the well being of the nation (Nigeria).
Considering the state of affairs in Nigeria, Africa, and the world at large, we saw the need to form a platform where critical news and issues are not only shared, but most importantly, are critically discussed.
We believe critical issues as it concerns humanity, deserve more attention than it is being alloted. People deserve to know and understand the realities around them better, and how it affects them. Having the right knowledge and true picture of things, will certainly trigger the proper reaction and call to action. But these can only be possible if issues or matters of great significance are given their most deserved attention.
This is the core reason behind the existence of Critical Times News. To not only break news, but to also provide the medium to discuss the news, so that the right picture can be seen, information understood, and appropriate action, taken.
Our vision is to create and encourage an objective, truthful and unbiased kind of journalism were issues are not only identified for their sake, or for the purpose of serving personal or collective interests of a certain group of individuals, against the interest of the general public. But rather, a journalism which focuses on issues as it concerns the nation as a whole, and to give these issues their well deserved attention, ensured they are addressed, and needed difference felt in the general society.
We hope to create a platform were people not only read or hear of the problems facing the nation, but are also empowered with the right information to ensure that something is done to address them.
We envision a better Nigeria made possible by people who being empowered with appropriate knowledge on the realities around them, took the appropriate steps of ensuring that something is done to effectively address them.
Our mission is to ensure that every news makes a difference, and that your opinions are given the best attention and treatment they deserve.
We believe that 'bad news' can be made 'good news' if the right information is communicated, and the right cause of actions, taken.
For these reasons, we've resolve to not only break news, but also provide you the opportunity to:
