The historical role of the media in Nigeria has vacillated between offering, on the one side, staunch support for national unity and a democratic culture and, alternately, as a vehicle for the propagation of ethnic, religious, sectional interests. This article explores the turbulent relationship between the media, the political process and political actors, and it places their interactions in the context of the complex structure of Nigerian society.
