Influences Of Media Ownership Patterns On Media Freedom And Professionalism In Nigeria


Abstract


This paper examines the patterns of media ownership in Nigeria. It analyzes the impacts of ownership patterns on media freedom and professionalism. It argues that the media ownership climate in Nigeria is very cloudy, and not conducive for optimum operations, especially for private media. Government uses its regulatory agencies to frustrate media freedom. The scenario is not a lot different from centralized control. Government is urged to encourage free enterprise and allow a level playing field for private and public media firms.

Interestingly, most societies have spent huge amount of time and resources to work out effective system for using the mass media. Some societies have, however, left the media at the whims of rulers as they come and go. The mass media will remain a useless lot unless there is an effective system to harness and use them as instruments of social communication.

The concern therefore is examining and analyzing patterns of media ownership in Nigeria in a bid to draw useful conclusions. This will help establish a correlation among media ownership, media freedom and professionalism.
