From the desk of the Publisher, Mr Obinna Sunday Ejianya

I firmly believe that knowledge is power and that knowledge stems from information. By providing accurate information, we empower individuals to make informed decisions at all levels, be it in governance or among the citizenry.

Motivated by a desire to provide accurate information and empower our people to make informed decisions, especially in choosing the right leadership and having leaders in check, I decided to venture into the media industry. I discussed this with a friend in the diaspora and sought a name for the media outlet. Inspired by my admiration for 9News Australia, a prominent media organization, I saw a connection between “9News” and Nigeria. Thus, 9News Nigeria was born in 2016. With earmarked funds, we launched the platform and have since been dedicated to delivering reliable information to the people.

I firmly believe that knowledge is power and that knowledge stems from information. By providing accurate information, we empower individuals to make informed decisions at all levels, be it in governance or among the citizenry. If our leaders are confronted with the truth on a daily basis, they will strive to bring about the necessary change that Nigeria and Africa require. The media plays a pivotal role in guiding both leaders and the masses along the right path.

Throughout history, leaders in societies worldwide have sought to control the media, underscoring its influence in shaping public opinion and impacting the masses. The relationship between power and the media has endured across civilizations, with examples dating back to ancient times.

The control exerted by leaders over the media serves as a tool for shaping narratives, disseminating propaganda, and consolidating power. By manipulating the media, leaders can control the flow of information and manipulate public perception to suit their interests. This control enables them to suppress dissent, maintain their positions of authority, and perpetuate corrupt practices with minimal opposition.

This is why non-state media organizations should be independent, apolitical, and unbiased most of the time, and media stakeholders should minimize the conflict of interest tendencies and be transparent enough that those in power would have a rethink while carrying out their duties of meeting the people’s needs. We owe the masses the duty of care to preserve the truth as its custodians and disseminators.
