Oh My Word! Nigerian Goverment Votes N300 Million To Fight Foreign Media Propaganda
The amount will be spent on “External publicity /media insertions in foreign media: print media, electronic media, media forum in selected cities abroad, engagement with foreign news agencies, production of specialized publicity materials for external audience”, according to the 2014 national budget. Nigeria is facing one of its most damaging international news coverage currently with a harsh media spotlight on the massacre by the extremist Boko Haram sect. This does not make ANY sense because if the Government is doing the RIGHT thing by protecting the lives of its citizens and providing security they wont need to spend money on propaganda especially this much. People are suffering, no health care, education, security, social amenities and PROPAGANDA is what is improtant. Its not like the money would be used for that it would most likely be stolen. THIS IS JUST TOO MUCH. PT.
