6.5 Media and dissemination
This section contains five documents on media produced by SLGP, a governance development programme that operated in Nigeria from 2001 to 2008.
Corruption problems in Nigerian governments could be eased by using media for improving transparency. But reports on the topic are unpopular with government partners and so consequently are paid little attention, despite the considerable successes for the small amount of work produced.
The reports fall into three categories:
- Providing learning resource centres (LRCs), most of which failed, to foster better access to information,
- Developing strategies for transparency and awareness, and
- Delivering radio programmes which, despite good audiences, did not appear to influence government operations.
The reports follow two themes. One is media publication of information about government business to improve transparency and accountability. The other, and more popular theme, is using media for publicity. The second has potential to be manipulative but both themes are implicitly partisan and political, and therefore sensitive.
In these documents there are:
- Reports on the Hannu Daya radio programme from its origin in 2002–2007,
- A report on the original outline proposal for the LRCs, and
- A proposal for a media strategy in Benue State.
