With 250 ethnic groups, high rate of semi-literacy and tense religious divide, Nigeria is facing more threat to its stability and wellbeing through Hate Speech, Fake and Sensational News, than it is facing from the Boko Haram and Niger Delta Militants' direct attack on its people and resources.
Every day, Nigerians are bombarded with alarming and divisive information as media houses strive to gain traffic in a community that is relatively new to, but massively uses, the internet. What stands Nigeria out, however, is that while fake news sites exist, many of such sites are made to appear like real media houses and even more sad is that the biggest media houses in Nigeria have been guilty of the most unprofessional and crisis threatening form of Fake News.
Everyday tensions rise in our dear nation due to misinformation. Our people have been made to hate each other and taught that one tribe is scheming against another. When the News is not fake it is purposely written in a manner that it will be taken out of context.
The three evils of Fake, Sensational and Out of Context News is why we created Explaining the News (ETN24.COM) which is meant to be a portal for giving every News item its correct perspective with the hope of using News to educate rather than agitate.
