Our Manifesto

Legit.ng is an independent source of information. It thrives on money from advertising solely, with no finance or influence from the government, political parties, or private individuals.

Legit.ng Mission

Our aim is to collect information from reliable sources, systematise it and explain it in an understandable and neutral manner. We provide high-quality, trustworthy and affordable media products related to different spheres of people's lives.

All the stories at Legit.ng avoid a single-sided reflection of the situation. The site is not liable for the author’s point of view, but, at the same time Legit.ng reserves the right to publish alternate versions as long as they are not considered propaganda, do not justify violence, nor lead to enmity.

The news site often deals with challenging and controversial content. But, it will also contribute to the diversity of content in the media and fulfil Legit.ng’s mission of encouraging and promoting all spheres of life and all views.

Legit.ng always refers to the initial source of information and makes a clear reference to it. The editorial team constantly makes every effort to verify data. The facts in our articles are instantly amended to achieve maximum integrity, accuracy and precision.

Legit.ng takes into consideration the versatility of its readers' interests. It is open to cooperation with independent contributors. Information gathered from readers, as well as reports from social media, are used on a regular basis.
