- About National Mirror
National Mirror was acquired in 2008 by the billionaire lawyer and business man, Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim (OFR). His first task upon acquisition of the newspaper was its complete refocus, giving it proper direction. He then acquired six states-of-the-art printing machines. The intention is to site the machines in each six geo political zones in the country.
The machines are specifically to be located in the cities of Lagos, Abuja, Akure, Owerri, Kano and Maiduguri. With that, every part of the country gets to read the newspaper earlier than any other newspaper, considering the fact that each of the printing locations is about four hours to the final sales destination. Not only that, emphasis is given to the local news in the arrangement.
In order to achieve the objective of being a world-class newspaper in the country, the publisher assembled some of the best hands in the industry. Members of the top editorial team include Seyi Fasugba, Daily Editor, Kayode Fasua, Acting Editor of the Sunday Mirror, Gbemi Olujobi, Editor of the Saturday Mirror, Dozie Okebalama , Editorial Board Coordinator, Segun Fatuase, Editor, Online and Web Operations, Callistus Oke, Editorial Page Editor, Gani Kayode Balogun, Senior Manager, Research & Strategic Development as well as Semiu Salami, who edits Business Courage, the special publication that comes with National Mirror every Monday. With simultaneous printing already achieved in three of the plants, National Mirror operates an effective decentralized system with a Regional Managing Editor heading each zone .
