Nigeria’s newspaper industry is a vibrate one and this is because the press institution in the country has come a long way. Since the introduction of the first indigenous newspaper in 1859, the Nigerian reading public has been inundated with different newspapers, many of which are private owned. According to Sommerlad (1996) he states that “Nigeria has not only made progress in this important aspect of national growth and development; it has been made to adopt the press as a political tool, for economic development, stimulation of change and for social function.”
The privately owned newspaper outfits are usually more direct in their reports, they are usually not given to unbridled propaganda and acting as government mouthpiece like the government-owned outfits. They usually tell the story as it is without fear or favour. They appear in print and online. Most Nigerians rely on these papers to report and provide an honest analysis of the political and economic events in the country.
