The Nigeria mass media since independence, has faced the greatest challenge of how to make itself relevant to the Nigerian Society, especially in the ever precarious, prevalent issues of insecurities currently ravaging the country. How do I mean?
The political class, in its Avarice, or greed, has employed the mass media as instruments, for selfish and sectional loyalties, that, they (Media) failed abruptly to tell the citizens, the true situations and happenings around the country and it’s states. As a results, media reports have greatly heightened tension and created suspicion among the citizens.
The mass media comprises the means by which a society disseminates and receives information. The well attuned traditional instruments of the mass media to the modern Man are the Newspaper, Radio, and the Television. The Journalist is a human being, he studies other human creatures.
In quintessence, reports about human beings are the major source of his information.
Consequently, the information disseminated by the journalist, media, could be harmful or useful, depending on its contents. This is where the issue of security comes in. The media transmit messages about a particular society, No one else can play this role. The information is passed across a destination, to achieve a goal, which is to inform and educates.
It then means, the media must not misinformed, mislead, or led astray the citizens when it comes to dispensing information to its citizens. They must get it right. Whatever information that will be let out to the public, must be Credible, Authentic, and Beneficial to the people.
National security borders on incidence that endangers human existence or welfare. Nigeria’s national security means the protection of the lives, rights, dignity and property of its citizens. It also means the protection of its resources, cultural integrity, territory, sovereignty and lawful institutions of the country.
The major aim of national security is to secure the just and equitable living conditions for all the citizens of the country. But it is sad to say that, the leadership of the country has failed in this respect.
Security includes the means at the disposal of the government for protecting the state and its citizens from external aggression and internal insurrection. The state exists for the interest of defense, public safety, public morality, etc. The freedom of expression and the press is an aspect of national security, and it is necessary for a true democracy.
Again, the lamentable fact is that, the reverse is the case, looking at currents events of insecurities ravaging the shore of the country. There has been cases of kidnapping, miscreant hiding under the disguise of kingpins, killings, ritualism, cyber crime, day light robbery, cultism, community street crimes, just to mention but a few!
The media needs to be very alert! The major function of the press in any given society includes surveillance of the environment, correlation of the component of the society in responding to the environment and transmission of the social heritage.
The media must be more than ready to blow the whistle, to call attention to serious national issues at every opportunity, because of the incessant incidence of armed robbery and other violent crimes that are on the increase in Nigeria. The daily Newspapers should be awash with reports of armed robbery and other forms of crime including corruption by public office holders.
