About Us

The Columns Nigeria is a journal about collating ideas around security in Nigeria and beyond. We also publish content around governance and economy since they are pillars of security.

We publish and re-publish essays that are rigorous and readable to different intellectual interests, aiming to shape minds towards the improvement of security and development of Nigeria.

It is published by Center for Fiscal Transparency & Integrity Watch Nigeria, a not-for-profit organization that promotes good governance in Nigeria.

The ideas expressed in the essays and other content we publish are those of the writers who expressed them and not necessarily the views of The Columns or its parent body, the Center for Fiscal Transparency & Integrity Watch.
