Feedback
  • For most of its history, Nigeria has had a
    reasonably free press
  • Military regimes have cracked down on the press
    and even closed some outlets at moments of the
    highest tensions
  • But relatively few Nigerians are literate or
    wealthy enough to buy a newspaper, so the key is
    radio and television, which civilian and military
    authorities have tried to control through the
    Nigerian Broadcast Commission
