For Nigeria to move forward, the media should play active role in investigative journalism because the media should be the mouthpiece of the people. When politicians start deviating from their normal duties, it is the responsibility of the media to correct them by bringing them back on track and many more but with what is happening in Nigeria today, it is clear that most Nigeria media outfits lack the ability to carry out real investigative work. If they have been doing their jobs nicely, by now the Nigerian politicians would not have been manipulating the country which is bad and our further investigation also revealed that most politicians are working hand in hand with most Nigeria media outfits. When they get any information to publish, if it is damaging and involves any of their political associates, such article would not be published. We (Viewers Corners News) want to remind those that are in this profession that the Nigerian public rely so much on their contributions before any judgement can be made concerning any politician, that is why more work must be done on the side of investigative reporting which is lacking in Nigeria media.The only online media outfit doing nicely on this aspect is the SAHARA REPORTERS, the contributions of this great media outfit has made most politicians in Nigeria to caution themselves properly before acting because no matter where any issue is hidden, Sahara Reporters will surely bring it out to the Nigerian public and the world at large. Again look at senator Dino Melaye for example, who has been using a questionable certificate for years and the Nigerian people did not know, if Sahara reporters did not bring it out, it would have been hidden forever and they are many of such people in the senate and other places within the country (Nigeria) who are depriving others their rightful positions. Majority of Nigerians know the truth about senator Dino Malaye, people like him just went to the senate to enrich themselves, tell people what they want to hear and then turn around to do the opposite which is very bad. Senator Dino Maleye will attend a seminar and call it a degree, such men are in the Nigerian senate making laws for the country (Nigeria) and still Nigerians did not see anything wrong with that. Sincerely this group of lawmakers in the country (Nigeria) at the moment can never bring any benefit to Nigeria, therefore we are appealing to all Nigerians to be watchful and know who they vote for to represent them because development can only come to various communities when you vote people of outstanding qualities to lead your communities. Very soon 2019 would be here for everyone to choose who would represent them, please do it nicely and ask questions about who you are voting for. It is your right to know everything concerning the person you are going to cast your vote for so that you do not make mistakes of voting for the wrong person.
