Kashim Shettima, governor of Borno state, has congratulated Simon Kolawole, chief executive officer (CEO) of TheCable, as the online newspaper clocked 5 years.

The governor took to his Twitter handle to describe the ace journalist as a “decent man” dedicated to the cause of a better Nigeria.

“Congratulations my brother! You are a decent man who believes in the Nigeria Project. Best of Luck,” Shettima wrote.

As part of the 5th anniversary celebration, Kolawole shared an online post where he tasked his media team to strive for excellence in the journalism profession.


“As we cut our 5th anniversary cake today, I threw a challenge at my colleagues: “You must pursue excellence everyday of your life. There is a difference between ‘that man’ and ‘those men’, ‘that woman’ and ‘those women’. You must stand out in everything you do,” he wrote.

On the journey of TheCable so far, the public speaker and media entrepreneur said the online newspaper has experienced both high and low moments but will continue to aim for a better future.

‘Exactly five years today, we launched TheCable newspaper at the Lagos City Hall. We’ve had highs and lows but we look back on this day with a grateful heart to God and appreciation to all our supporters and critics. We can only get better! A zillion thanks to everybody,” Kolawole said.

Since its debut on April 29, 2014, TheCable has carved out a unique niche in the media space as an independent online newspaper committed to professional and ethical journalism practice “in pursuit of Nigeria’s progress.”
