CKN Nigeria was set up in 2008 to give Nigeria’s at home and in diaspora an undiluted first hand information on happenings within and outside the Nigerian nation.

It started as an interactive platform on Facebook, twitter, blackberry and later as a fully fledged news portal.

Over the years, we realized that the future of information dissemination will be wholly depended online via social media platforms.

We also realized that social media will become the greatest form of mass mobilisation and expression of ideas.

We at CKN Nigeria decided to key into this vision early enough, to position ourselves on what will be the FUTURE MEDIA.

Within this short period and to the glory of God, we believe we have achieved to a large extent our set down objectives.

We have been able to use our platform, to shape opinions, set agenda as well as mobilize Nigerians towards a common goal.

CKN Nigeria has within this period been able to set enviable records for breaking news, news reportage, editorial opinions, mobilisation as well as act as a platform for intellectual discuss in the area of politics, entertainment, social interactions, philanthropy and other societal engineering efforts.

We have also created a platform for people to meet especially in the area of building mutual relationships which to some extent lead to marriages etc.

It has not been smooth sailing all the way. Just like every venture, we have had our challenges, especially in the area of sourcing for contents, getting people to volunteer information, striking a balance between what is “good” and “bad”, discussing sensitive issues that may bother on security and many other un-envisaged challenges.

There is also the issue of power (electricity), epileptic network connectivity (since social media is News on the road).

Acceptability also had its own initial road blocks since people would rather exhibit A WAIT AND SEE attitude.

All in all for us at CKN Nigeria, it has been a WIN WIN situation for us. Being ranked as one of the most recognized and viable means of information dissimilation in Nigeria and abroad has made all our efforts worthwhile.

This has reflected in the number of AWARDS we have won within and outside the country.

Looking forward, we will strive to maintain our dominance in the market and increasing daily our market share.

We hope to make CKN Nigeria the first and most dependable news portal not only in Nigeria but the continent of Africa.

In advancing that goal, we have set up our International arm. www.ckninternational.blogspot.com
