Oluwaseun Durojaiye

Deputy Communications Manager

Oluwaseun Durojaiye is a journalist and communications strategist with over seven years working experience. In 2019, she worked as a special correspondent for The Cable Newspaper in Nigeria, covering elections in the eastern region of the country and exposing electoral malpractices. She later worked as an investigative journalist at the International Centre for Investigative Reporting (ICIR), where she focused on reporting on health, COVID-19 and gender issues.

As an investigative journalist, she was selected as a transnational fellow of the African Women Journalism Project (AWJP), and worked on a cross-border report highlighting the impact of COVID-19 in Nigeria and Kenya.

She’s also an accredited solutions journalism trainer and has trained over 200 journalists on how to integrate solutions journalism into their reporting. In July 2021, she was selected as a solutions journalism Africa Fellow and pioneered a curriculum and training deck used to train journalists on how to do solutions journalism in three major Nigerian languages; Hausa, Igbo, Yoruba including Pidgin – which is a popular lingua franca in West Africa.

Her passion for solutions-focused reporting led her to launch Social Voices, a digital publication rooted in public service journalism, using a constructive journalism storytelling approach.

At CODE,  she works to empower citizens with information and data to demand accountability from the government. She’s currently dedicated to using journalism and advocacy to influence policies as well as spotlighting how people are working to solve the most prominent challenges affecting the health, development and social welfare of the most vulnerable and marginalized people in Nigeria and across Africa.
