What PIJAlance Means?


PIJAlance is a strategic word full of wordings carefully chosen to reflect who we are and who we wish to become in the future.


PIJAlance is a combination of two words PIJA and lance.


PIJA is derived from the initials of our mother online institute of learning—Patriot Institute of Journalism and Arts. The institute, though has paused in operation for now, is with the vision to school Nigerian youth on skills not taught in schools; the reason for the addition of Arts , signifying crafts while Journalism symbolises news reportage.


Lance is our choice of words to describe the impact we would like our stories to make. The impact to fish out truths and butcher falsehoods; to sharpen strengths of the weak and disorganise the camp of the unjust-few. lance is a symbol for good antagonizing bad; for justice alienating the sight of injustice.
