Project Background[edit]

A newspaper is a publication printed on paper and, issued regularly, usually daily or weekly. It serves as a platform for disseminating news, opinion, and current issues. Before the advent of social media, Newspaper served as one of the sources of information in Nigeria. The business started in the 19 century in Nigeria. Most of the media houses at the time focused on promoting religious ethics and correct social vices among community members in the country and were owned by Missionary. Between 1834 and 1937, only three newspapers were in circulation. After the Nigerian independence in 1960 up till now, the number has increased astronomically. As at the last count, there are over 100 newspapers published in the country (online and offline). However, the basic information about all the Newspapers published in the country since independence cannot be easily accessed. So, it’s a big challenge for researchers or users of Wikipedia and its sister project to refer them for their works, and the few available data are scattered across the internet and so make life unbearable for users of this information.
