At the inception of press revolution in Nigeria, the western part of the country seemed to have more than a fair share of gains. For instance, Lagos alone still harbours more newspaper companies any region in the country. Surprisingly, some regions in the country are experiencing a near-to-total drought in the practice of journalism, especially the print version. Consequently, these regions are left behind in the progressive gains of the print media which indeed cannot be over-emphashized.
