For almost a decade, Legit.ng, an independent media organisation, has used journalism to positively transform the lives of ordinary Nigerians for the better.
Now, we want to go even further to give you more deeply researched news reports and more entertaining content. However, we cannot do this alone.
This is why Legit.ng is seeking the support of our loyal readers to sponsor the worthy cause of providing more accurate, sincere and undiluted news reports as part of our contribution to making Nigeria an even better place.
Picture a scenario of a 13-year-old boy in Calabar, Cross Rivers state, who survived by selling irons on the streets to take care of his basic needs. But after Legit.ng reporters published a story about him, kind-hearted Nigerians reached out to help him get out of the streets and pledged to sponsor his education.

How about an 80-yr-old woman and her orphaned grandchildren who received a brand new mattress as a Christmas gift from a generous Nigerian following a report by Legit.ng showing pictures of the family while washing their old mattress on Christmas Day.
The above accounts are some of the many instances where Legit.ng positively touched thousands of lives through the support of newsreaders.
Today, Legit.ng intends to positively touch the lives of more people and we ask you to join us in that journey of changing lives for the better.
Why your support matters?
We keep our work open and free to all Nigerians. We do not put up a paywall as we believe everyone deserves equal access to quality journalism, at a time when factual reporting is critical.
As a responsible media company, we feel a responsibility to provide the country and the world with honest news about Nigeria. However, being an independent media company sometimes means uncertainty.
Legit.ng has never been influenced by any millionaire owner or politician. We are influenced by you and work for you. This is why we ask you to support us to sustain independent journalism in Nigeria.
