Private Broadcasting and The Challenges of Democratization of Electronic Media In Nigeria

Ciboh Rodney
KEYWORDS: PRIVATE BROADCASTING AND THE CHALLENGES OF DEMOCRATIZATION OF ELECTRONIC MEDIA IN NIGERIA

ABSTRACT:

This paper examines the difficulties in the growth of independent broadcasting in Nigeria and concludes that the unwieldy government network monopoly over broadcasting, which is expanding is a major threat to the national quest for democratisation of the country. The paper observes that government abuses of public stations are a consequence of this monopoly. And unless public monopoly is dismantled, government denial of citizen access to broadcasting will continue to erode one of the important conditions of genuine democratisation of society.
