Established in 2016, the Cable Newspaper Journalism Foundation (Cable) is a nonprofit organization focused on promoting active citizenry, transparency, and accountability in Nigeria through investigative journalism, mobilization, and advocacy. With the previous grant, the Cable launched the Policy Radar in Nigeria (PRIN) I & II initiatives, which focused on investigative journalism, data journalism, video reporting, and mentoring. The Cable has since published hundreds of investigative reports and dozens of mini-documentaries, with some prompting remedial actions by the government. With this award, the Cable launches PRIN III, which adds fact-checking and a policy tracker to the work. Its 'Cable Check' program monitors and addresses misinformation around the 2023 general elections. The Cable also translates its reporting into local languages and has a disability-friendly website and audio versions of fact-checking reports. The policy tracker program monitors campaign promises as well as policies and programs. The Cable continues to track policies through investigative reporting and building journalists' capacity in investigative reporting, including recruiting graduate interns across gender, geography, and faith, and collaborating with On Nigeria cohorts. The award contributes to On Nigeria's goal of reducing corruption and strengthening accountability, transparency, and participation.
