C. marking the first internal unification in the country. The modern state originated with British colonization in the 19th century and took its current territorial form with the amalgamation of the Southern Nigeria Protectorate and the Northern Nigeria Protectorate in 1914 by Lord Lugard. The British established administrative and legal structures while practicing indirect rule through traditional chiefdoms in the Nigerian region. Nigeria became a formally independent federation on October 1, 1960.

The official language is English, chosen to facilitate linguistic unity at the national level.

Nigeria is a regional power in Africa, a middle power in international affairs, and is an emerging global power. Nigeria’s economy is the largest in Africa, the 25th largest in the world by nominal GDP and the 25th largest by PPP. Nigeria is often referred to as the Giant of Africa due to its large population and economy, and is considered an emerging market by the World Bank. However, the country ranks very low on the Human Development Index and remains one of the most corrupt nations in the world.

Newspapers published in Nigeria have a strong tradition of the “publish and be convicted” principle dating back to the colonial era when the founding fathers of the Nigerian press such as Nnamdi Azikiwe, Ernest Ikoli, Obafemi Awolowo and Lateef Jakande used their newspapers to fight for independence
Until the 1990s, most publications were owned by the government, but private newspapers such as the Daily Trust, Nigerian Tribune, The Punch, Vanguard and The Guardian continued to expose public and private scandals despite government attempts. to suppress them.
Laws related to the media, including newspapers, are scattered across various pieces of legislation. There are few good sources for discussion and analysis of these laws.
Some newspapers rely heavily on ads that can be placed by companies owned by powerful people. In some cases, this makes newspapers wary of reporting details of crimes or suspected crimes, and sometimes publish articles that clearly paint corrupt individuals in a favorable light. An analysis of newspapers shows a strong bias towards coverage by men, reflecting prevailing cultural biases. Few articles talk about women and there are few photographs of women outside of the fashion sections. Although profits have declined since the late 1980s, the number of publications has grown steadily. As of 2008 there were over 100 national, regional or local newspapers.
Online newspapers have become popular since the rise of internet accessibility in Nigeria; more than ten percent of the top fifty websites in the country are dedicated to online newspapers. Due to the improvement in mobile penetration and the growth of smartphones, Nigerians have started to rely on the internet for news. Online newspapers have also been able to circumvent government restrictions because content can be shared without the need for any physical infrastructure. The result has been a disruption of the traditional sources of news that have dominated the media industry.
