Legit.ng has emerged Nigeria's most popular digital publisher in terms of website traffic, according to the latest report by DataReportal which cited Alexa as its source.
The report also indicates Legit.ng is the seventh overall most visited website in the most populous African nation, ahead of other tech giants such as Wikipedia and Instagram.
This means a huge percentage of the over 100 million internet users in Nigeria, 104.4 million according to DataReportal, get their news from Legit.ng.
The Alexa ranking cited in the report also implies that more Nigerians get their news from Legit.ng than any other sources in the country.
Since 2012, Legit.ng, formerly NAIJ.com, has consistently led the way in exploring diverse formats and topics and analysing audience preferences to create the most relevant and resourceful content.
As we cover politics, business, sports, entertainment news and more to enrich Nigerians’ lives, we were never afraid to implement something new.
This informed our brave decision in 2018 to upgrade from NAIJ.com to Legit.ng. The name change was not just for changing sake; it was the product of our efforts to continue to provide credible content that aligns with our core value: integrity.
We create impactful stories that are authentic, ethically verifiable without getting caught up in the messy pool of fake news and hoaxes.
As we continue to lead the way in digital publishing in Nigeria, Legit.ng in February 2021 made another major milestone by joining the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Media Compact.
As a member of the SDG Media Compact, Legit.ng now plays a critical role in raising awareness about the SDG.
We are one of the only six Nigerian media companies that were invited to join the United Nation’s SDG Media Compact.
It is a special privilege that the UN extends to leading media organisations around the world to partake in the collective responsibility of making the world a safer and better place as envisioned in the SDG agenda.
