About PM Parrot

About PM Parrot

Prokonnect Limited was registered in 2004 to serve as the mother company to publish PM Parrot Evening Newspaper and Parrot Xtra Magazine. Our Corporate Headquarters has since remained in Ibadan with representatives’ offices at Ojodu, Lagos and Abuja.

Our ambition then was to completely take over the practice of purposeful journalism in the south west of Nigeria and, indeed, the whole country.

PM Parrot Evening Newspaper, which tells tomorrow’s news fresh today, started as an evening tabloid in 2004 and was consistently circulated for about four years before the creation of its online version.

Our sister publication, Parrot Xtra Magazine started about the same time. It concentrated on coverage of events and publishing in glossy vivid colours. It is still very much in circulation and is published twice a month.

About Olayinka Agboola, our CEO/Editor In Chief: Attended Lagelu Grammar School, Ibadan. Got two degrees from the University of Ibadan, B.A in Archaeology and M.A. in History. He started his journalism career at the defunct Fame Weekly Magazine in Lagos in 1991 after his service year. He later worked at Ovation International Magazine, Thisday Newspaper, Eko FM Radio Station, Daily Sketch, Nigerian Tribune. He was a Press Secretary to a former Oyo State Governor before he floated Prokonnect Ltd in 2004.
