According to August von Schlozer, a German Historian, a man who does not read newspapers is foolish (He actually said, “Foolish is the man who does not read newspapers; but even more foolish is the man who believes everything he reads in newspapers”). The implication of Schlozer’s words is that it is very important to for you to read newspapers and follow the news – especially that part of the news which has to do with your country or immediate environment. That takes us to the issue of Nigeria. Whether you live in Nigeria or in Diaspora, in as much as you were born in this country which prides itself as the “Giant of Africa”, you should follow every part of the news about her. Also, if you work in Nigeria (even though you may not be born there), the same applies to you. In this article, the usual contents which you’ll find in Nigerian newspapers today as well as how you can get full access to these newspapers are discussed.
In the present day Nigeria, lots of events happen – just like we have it in other parts of the world. However, the happenings in Nigeria seem to be of particular interest even to the international community simply because they are usually a mixture of extremes. In other words, Nigeria newspapers today are filled with both very gladdening and very saddening reports. Can you imagine reading on a newspaper page that the Nigerian government has taken a giant stride towards the stabilization of electric power supply in the country and also reading (in the same newspaper) that a particular group of youths have bombed a government-owned facility somewhere in the country? Yes, you find a mixture of reports like these in Nigerian newspapers today on a frequent basis.
Apart from a mixture or tragic and gladdening news reports, Nigerian newspapers are further made very interesting by other contents which they offer readers. These include job vacancy advertisements, commercial advertisements and promotional messages, brain-testing games and puzzles, interviews, editorials, cartoons and lots more. So, you will surely find at least one thing that catches your interest.
Getting access to Nigerian newspapers is not in any way a difficult task. If you live in Nigeria, then you may want to walk down to the vendor’s every morning and pick your own copy of your favorite newspaper. If you have a flat pocket and you are very reluctant to part with your cash (for personal reasons), then you may choose the easier option of just reading through the pages without taking the paper away. After reading the contents to your satisfaction, you may give the vendor a token (which is usually a minute fraction of the newspaper’s selling price).
Also, if you have an internet-ready device such as a laptop or a mobile phone, then you can have full access to the latest contents of Nigeria newspapers on the internet simply by visiting naijagists.com . This is the best option for those who do not want to get their home closets filled with heaps of useless papers afterwards.
