Deregulation, Globalisation and Current Issues in the Electronic Media in Nigeria

Anyanwu, Bernard J. C., Ejem, Agwu A., Nwokeocha, Ifeanyi M.


As a country with arguably the most vibrant media in Africa, Nigeria has caught the fire of the global media phenomenon. The Nigerian electronic media industry, in particular, continues to show greater participation in the global village agenda. This trend started with the passage of Decree 38 of 1992 that liberalized the electronic media industry in Nigeria, and empowered private ownership; however, no time has the globalisation effect been more felt than in the 15-year old (1999 – 2014) democratic administration in the country. This paper relies on primary and secondary materials from existing literatures and reports, to show how this globalization trend has galvanized the electronic media in Nigeria with numerous benefits and challenges, particularly in terms of production, content and reception.

Keywords: Nigeria, Globalisation, Deregulation, Electronic, Media.
