In 2004, there were about 95 reasonably regular newspapers. However, in 2012, the number has almost doubled with Ayankunbi, (2012) positing that as at
today, the total number of newspapers in the country is in the neighbourhood of 150. Ayankunbi, (2012) expresses concern that despite having about 150 newspapers published in the country
and a population of over 150 million people, the combined daily circulation figure of all of them is
about 300,000 copies.

in 2008, about 22 independent internet newspapers existed; these are however mostly online editions of print newspapers. This number has however increased to over 34 internet newspapers in 2012.
 According to 2007 statistics by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), only eight million Nigerians (or 5.9% of the population) had access to the
internet. Most of these – probably up to 90% – gained access only through cybercafés that charge per hour and
therefore do not spend much time on the net unless it is absolutely necessary for their purposes.

This situation has however, witnessed an exponential growth with the availability of internet access via cell
phones, Internet modems, iPads, Blackberry, Andriod, and other browsing enabled devices, all these have skyrocketed
access to the Internet in Nigeria. This is evident in the increase of people with access to the
Internet in the country. Presently, Nigeria has the highest number of Internet users in Africa, with a population of
45,039,711 Internet users as of Dec.31, 2011, 29.0% of the population, (internetworldstats.com, 2012).
