Become an NDLink Champion

Join our community of motivated individuals who drive conversations around development
issues in the Niger Delta.


There is no platform in the Niger Delta that is a one-stop information hub of development related news and stories. As a result, development news stories are mostly under-reported or not reported at all.
It is important to have a platform that tells our stories, showcases our professionals and organizations, connects individuals, civil society organizations, the government and other stakeholders in the region towards promoting development of the Niger Delta. NDLink is that platform! We are poised to share the narratives that define the Niger Delta region and would love to have you be a part of the new voice arising in the region.

Who is a Champion?

  • An NDLink Champion has positive interactions with other members and is able to create a welcoming atmosphere for all members to share their views freely and openly.
  • They have expertise in a particular area, with a strong online following of their own.
  • A major attribute of a community champion is the ability to be open and respectful, to appreciate the ideas of others and look for input, not just from people they know, but also from other members of the community.
