This Day is a Nigerian national newspaper. It is the flagship newspaper of Leaders & Company Ltd and was first published on 22 January 1995. It has its headquarters in Apapa, Lagos, Lagos State.[1]

As of 2005, it has a circulation of 100,000 copies and an annual turnover of some $35 million (US). It has two printing plants, in Lagos and Abuja. The publisher was noted for his early investment in colour printing, giving the paper a distinctive edge among the few durable national newspapers that exist in Nigeria. Along with many of owner and proprietor Nduka Obaigbena's media ventures, the paper has long been riddled with controversy over the late and non payment of its staff and suppliers.[2] Journalist Olusegun Adeniyi is the current chairman of the editorial board.
