Welcome To WABMA®
...in-campus and online courses available
The ever increasing number of public and private media houses worldwide, has necessitated the urgent and compelling need for the regular training of practitioners to effectively run these institutions.
The West Africa Broadcast and Media Academy (WABMA®) has therefore been established to bridge the apparent yawning gap in the training of media professionals, particularly in Nigeria, Ghana and The Gambia and online.
WABMA® ignites the creative genius in students and properly hones the skill of practitioners to pursue successful careers in the public and private media as well as the creative industries and new media.
Audience Survey Questionnaire
Media Literacy & Countering Misinformation Project
Dear Respondent, the availability of mobile phones and the internet has led to the spread of false information about the COVID 19 pandemic as well as the Vaccine which has led to an increase in COVID denial and shunning WHO precautions and treatments for the Virus. Unscientific claims have led to a spread of conspiracy theories and distrust for government initiatives to stop the spread of the virus.
This study aims to understand the population most susceptible to misinformation, their favorite media (online & radio), and their knowledge about how to detect and counter fake news and misinformation.
