Originally named the Nigeria Printing and Publishing Company, the Daily Times of Nigeria was incorporated in Nigeria in 1926. Folio Communications officially assumed the ownership of the Daily Times of Nigeria on September 3, 2004.
The Daily Times, Nigeria’s pioneer newspaper and doyen of the media industry, clocked 90 years in 2016.
To celebrate the milestone in Nigeria’s media history, Folio Communications Limited, the holding company and owners of Daily Times and six other titles, commissioned Skill & Sketch Limited to design the 90th Anniversary logo.
The celebration of this heritage newspaper, according to Folio Communications Limited Board Chairman, Mr Fidelis Anosike, contrary to any other opinion, remains the celebration of the Nigerian media industry.
Anosike explained that the Daily Times anniversary would be used to re-evaluate the contributions of Nigerian media practitioners to nation building and galvanisation of the more than 250 constituent ethnic nationalities.
