About Us

The Spectacles is an online news platform that covers Nigeria. We are your one-stop Nigerian portal for all Nigerian news – politics, education, economy, Zamfara Current Affairs and much more. We are poised to provide our readers with unbiased, prompt and reliable news/updates.

We offer 24/7 updates on the happenings all over Nigeria, with the mission to drive socioeconomic growth and peaceful coexistence in northern Nigerian communities through: improving access to quality education, participation in governance, promotion of social justice and gender advocacy, and providing empowerment opportunities for youth and women.

We are the best, with the fastest updates on the hidden and encrypted political happenings in Nigeria. We publish across all formats also with this online platform where we hope to appeal to the bulk of our young and middle class elites with a vision of the future and a belief in social change.

The Spectacles desires to give a voice to the voiceless so that together, we can break away from the chains of poverty, deprivation, disunity, conflict and declining values in our society. Together we shall demand for leadership and good governance, justice, fairness, transparency and accountability amongst others.

We are not on online editing just to make money, we do it because we love it…
