8 May

World Press Freedom Day was established by the General Assembly of the United Nations in December 1993 as an outgrowth of the Seminar on Promoting an Independent and Pluralistic African Press.

Article 19 of the 1948 Universal Declaration on Human Rights states that everyone “has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right in-cludes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers”.

Regrettably, Nigerian media is still at crossroads despite the country’s enactment of Freedom of Information (FOI) law. The Nigerian press won a major  battle on May 28, 2011 when President Goodluck Jonathan signed the Freedom of Information Bill into law, after more than 12 years of campaigning. The FOI act was heralded as it is essentially to aid the quest for transparency, account-ability, good governance and democratic participation in Nigeria.

But barely one year after the FOI Act, observers are still of the view that Nige-rian press is still desperately in search of freedom despite the beauty of press freedoms as guaranteed by Sections 22 and 39 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Unfortunately, effective use of this piece of legislation is being hampered as many citizens are not aware of the law and those who are aware still do not know how to use it. The Act supercedes all other Acts such as the Official Se-crets Act, the Evidence Act, the Criminal Code, the Penal Code and the Federal Public Service Rules. Yet this Act seems to be observed more in principle than in practice as either the government agencies/institutions won’t comply or journalists are afraid to act because of the hostile environment they are operating.

Today, even as Nigerian media which has actually never been free, manages to remain vibrant, it has continued to face all sorts of attacks from both the govern-ment agencies and individuals. Practitio-ners have become endangered species as they face death daily while carrying out their constitutional duties.

Recent onslaught on the media has further compounded the woes of journal-ists in Nigeria. Attacks on ThisDay, The Sun and Moment newspapers’ offices in Abuja and Kaduna last Thursday by a terrorist group was an indication of the vulnerability of Nigerian media.

Before last week’s incident, some journalists had been killed by this group. In January, Channels Television vibrant reporter,  Enenche Akogwu  was  shot dead  in Kano by the sect when he approached bystanders for an eyewitness account at the scene of a bomb blast that was masterminded by the group. Akog-wu’s death happened immediately after the gruesome murder of Nansok Sallah, 46, a news editor of government-owned radio station, Highland FM in the restive central Nigeria city of Jos.
