Journalists associations

As scantily-patronised as it is, the NUJ is still the single biggest conglomeration of Nigerian journalists. But there are a few others, formed primarily on the basis of beats. The most popular of these would be the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), which, as the name suggests, is a union of sports journalists.

Others include the Brand Journalists’ Association of Nigeria (BJAN), Association of Nigerian Journalists and Writers of Tourism, Maritime Journalists Association of Nigeria (MAJAN) and the Nigeria Auto Journalists Association (NAJA).
