  • topinsn Oyelami Temitope, Student at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife Nigeria Caleb, untill recent, the massmedia has been subjective not now that they are biased in the dissemination of information to Nigerians. Power has been a problem and fear which has never been in existence is creeping in into the media houses. Dino Melaye, a former Rep member suffers attack alot because he tries no be honest..... the fight that the media houses had in the past is a grim the shadows are gone and the real them in suffering is now seen 1 year ago

  • paularo007 Aroloye Seyi, Global Moderator at Guruslodge The Nigerian Mass Media also know as the Nigerian Press has indeed come a long way, all the way from 1859 with the establishment of Iwe Irohin by Rev. Henry Townsend till date. The Nigerian Press started from the print media i.e with the establishment of Iwe irohin by the missionaries in abeokuta around 1859, along the way other forms of Media has also been added such as radio,television,new media etc which are the most popular forms of media in Nigeria today. The Print Media is referred to as the father of all because it beget all others and was the pioneer of The Nigerian Mass Media. It was also the print media through Dr. Nnamdi Azikwe the publisher of The 'West African Pilot ' Newspaper in 1937 that contributed to the independence of Nigeria in 1960. Right from 1859 till date, the Nigerian Mass Media as done a good job with the form of Newspapers. As at Today ,Nigeria has various Newspapers ranging from The Punch, Vanguard, Tribune, Compass, The Sun etc. Not only that, many indigenous Nigerian Languages like Yoruba,Igbo,Hausa.Efik,Ibibio and so on are all been published in the Nigerian Press.
