The role of Nigeria union of journalism in checkmating the unprofessionalism attitude of journalists

The role of Nigeria Union of Journalism in checkmating the Unprofessionalism attitude of Journalists.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Over the years and up to date, most journalists in Nigeria have been killed, some badly brutalized and some were even sentence to some years or life imprisonment. One would wonder and may ask why all these things are happening to most journalists in Nigeria. The reason for this is not farfetched, and until we understand what journalism is all about. We would not be able to ascertain the reason for the rampant killing and maltreatment of journalists in this country.

Some scholar in the field of journalists point out one of the factors responsible for the unfair treatment given to journalists is “Unprofessionalism”. According to them, unprofessionalism has posed a great to the profession of journalism in Nigeria. This is so because many journalists do not acquire the training and skills of the profession yet they are still practicing it. Their entrance into the profession of journalism may be due to the assistance given by a relation or a friend who may be an influential person in the society or may be the person who rendered the assistance is occupying a very high position in the field of journalism. If that is the case, the entrants who are also known as “quacks” may not familiar or conversant with the does and don’t (Ethics) of the profession. Beside this, they may also be ignorant of the four major theories of the press. Knowing the four makes theories of the press makes the journalists to be aware of their limit in the discharge their assigned duties in any political dispensation they find themselves, be it military or civilian regime. It is on this not that the Nigeria Union of Journalist (N.U.J) should see the need to put a stop to the rampant killing and maltreatment of people by checking the excesses of the quack journalists that has been threatening the entire profession. If that is Donna chance should be given to those who have the knowledge, skills and training. The union should also ensure that the 10 point ethics/ code of conduct that was reviewed in 1992 to guide every journalist are enforced. This I believe would reduce (if not eradicate) the level of unprofessionalism with the profession of journalism.

BRIEF HISTORY BACKGROUND OF THE N.U.J

The N.U.J’s Birth was linked to the struggle for the independence of Nigeria. The union also given birth to so many protest groups all yearning for the country’s independence from the British. The groups came in various shades like the Nigerian Youth Movement, a platform for the nationalist and journalist among others. It was the collective effort of the nationalist and journalist. In 1950’s that compelled the British colonial government to grant Nigeria independence. Apart from writing editorial comments and reporting the activities of the nationalist, trade union, students and others bodies involved in the struggle for independence on the pages of newspaper. Then, the journalist had no organization through which they could take any action or make decision like other group what they could not express as a body was done through newspaper like the Eagles, the Lagos weekly times, the Lagos chronicle, the Lagos weekly record, the Africa message. West African daily times, Lagos daily news etc. Continue reading The role of Nigeria union of journalism in checkmating the unprofessionalism attitude of journalists

Igbo Traders as a Missionary Tool in South Western Nigeria

ABSTRACT

Igbo traders as a missionary tool to south western Nigeria is the core issue of this research work. Some scholars have attributed good performance of trade in a geographical area to missionary activities that have taken place in that area. This study was carried out to identify and explain the religious and developmental impact of trade as a missionary tool to the southwest region of Nigeria for religion and development. Important towns like Lagos and Ibadan where given greater attention of study to discover the presence and impact of Igbos in the southwest. The findings of this study shows that Igbo traders, in the course of moving from one part of the country to another to trade for livelihood, carry along with them their cultural and religious belief centered on Christian principles, and in the process contribute to the physical development of their host community. It clearly show hence, that Igbo traders should be encouraged to still see themselves as missionaries, thereby impacting on the commerce of the society at large. This in turn affects positively the progress of our society. Some recommendation and suggestions were put forward which if properly implemented, will serve as remedy to trade barriers Igbos encounter in these places and beyond for a a peaceful coexistence with their southwestern Continue reading Igbo Traders as a Missionary Tool in South Western Nigeria
