An Islamic media agency in Nigeria, Dpath To Jannah Media Hub, has fixed Sunday, March 11, 2023, for its sophomore media seminar in Osun State.

A statement issued by the company disclosed that the second edition of the programme would take place at Ibikunle Lawal College, Parakin, Ile Ife, Osun State.

It was stated that the theme for the event is Media and Muslims: Opportunities and Threats 2:0 and would involve the Director of Public Corporation Affairs at the Voice of Nigeria (VON), Ustadh AbdurRazaq Adegboyega AbdusSalam (Abu Umar Al-Faruq), who will speak on the topic Islam and Social Media: Our Duties As Muslims.

According to the statement made available to Business Post, a renowned communication strategist and life coach, Mr Kamoru Salaudeen, will dissect the topic The Business Side Of Public Speaking, while a prolific broadcast journalist and media trainer, Mr AbdulHakeem Ishola, will speak on Public Speaking: The Do’s and Don’ts From the Lens Of Islam.

In the statement, the Director of Dpath To Jannah Media Hub, Mr Sodiq Lawal, disclosed that the programme is aimed at training the participants drawn from different universities in some southwest states on media reportage and exposing them to opportunities in the media industry.

According to him, the participants, including Muslim students from Obafemi Awolowo University, Osun State University, and the University of Ilorin, among others, who grace the event, would be awarded certificates of participation.

“Media coverage and representations have too often been discriminatory, exclusive, and biased, with many important voices left unheard. The upcoming media seminar attempts to address these issues through ethical and unbiased reporting.

“It also aims to improve the understanding of Muslims and Islam through unbiased media reporting, connecting with Muslims and religious representatives as well as diversifying the media’s respective views and portrayals. Participating Muslim students will also have the opportunity to get involved in the practical aspect of media.

“A panel session will also take place during the seminar where participants will interact and ask media-related questions from the guest speakers,” he added.
