Corrections Policy

Corrections Policy for Yohaig

At Yohaig NG, we believe in journalism of the highest integrity, priding ourselves in providing accurate, fair, and honest news.

We recognize that mistakes can occur, and our commitment to transparency and accountability means we will correct them promptly and visibly.

This corrections policy outlines our process and commitment to set right any inaccuracies that may arise in our reporting.

Commitment to Accuracy:

We strive to present our audience with factual, complete, and current news, utilizing all available information at the time of reporting. However, when an error is detected, we work swiftly and diligently to correct the mistake.

Reporting Inaccuracies:

If you believe that a story we have published is inaccurate or misleading, we encourage you to bring this to our attention.

Please get in touch with the editorial team by emailing us at [corrections@yohaig.ng].

We value our readers’ inputs and perspectives and take every feedback seriously.

Correcting Errors:

When an error is identified within an article, we will immediately seek the correct information.

A correction will be made directly within the content where the error was made, and a correction note will be added at the bottom of the article.

The correction note will clearly state the nature of the error, the correct information, what was initially published, and the date and time of the correction.

Handling Major Errors:

In the event of a significant error that may significantly misinform our readers, we will correct it and issue an apology.

This could take the form of a published correction article or an editor’s note, depending on the nature and impact of the error.

Transparency:

We believe in transparent corrections.

Therefore, we do not entirely delete content with mistakes.

Instead, we make the necessary corrections while maintaining the original content for transparency.

Correction in Social Media:

If we publish erroneous information on social media, we will correct it on that platform, retracting the incorrect post if we cannot modify it.

Accountability:

We do not attribute blame to individual reporters or editors for errors. Instead, we view mistakes as an opportunity for learning and improving our editorial processes.

Take-down Requests:

As a rule, we do not entertain take-down requests. We stand by our commitment to report the truth and provide accurate information.

However, if the claim is made that a story was inaccurate, we will investigate and, if necessary, publish a correction.

We will do so if fairness concerns require an update or follow-up, but we will not remove the original content.

This Corrections Policy reflects our commitment to upholding the highest standards of journalism, ensuring that Yohaig NG remains a reliable and trustworthy news source.

We believe embracing and correcting our mistakes strengthens our credibility and nurtures our readers’ trust.

We thank our readers for their support and cooperation in holding us accountable.
