Executive Director of Media Career Development Network, Lekan Otufodunrin has added “UNLOCKED: Writings from COVID-19 lockdown” to his list of authored books.
The veteran journalist who once worked as an online editor at The Nation newspaper defied the COVID-19 lockdown to produce the new book.
The book titled “UNLOCKED: Writings from COVID-19 lockdown” is a compilation of incisive writings of the accomplished journalist and media career development specialist during the five weeks lockdown of Lagos and other parts of Nigeria due to the coronavirus crisis.
The book published in its electronic format is divided into three sections: Motivation, Interviews and Opinion/Analysis.
The purpose of this E-book, Otufodunrin said, is to showcase what he was able to achieve as a journalist without leaving his home in Lagos.
He also granted interviews for some broadcast stations and online publications and participated in several Tweetchats.
Otufodunrin has over 30 years of media practice. He is presently Executive Director/Managing Editor of Media Career Development Network, Nigeria’s foremost media mentoring and coaching organisation.
