ABSTRACT

The practice of journalism comes with its challenges in every part of the world today. In Nigeria journalists suffer different types of abuse in the course of carrying out their duties, these abuses range from, unlawful arrest and grueling interrogation during detention, imprisonment, assassination, harassment, rape, maiming and other forms of physical and emotional abuse

The theoretical framework that will be used for this study is the psychometric paradigm which assumes that challenges are subjectively defined by individuals who may be influenced by a wide array of psychological, social, institutional and cultural factors. The research design that will be adopted for this study will be the interview method.

The population used for the study were seven journalism practitioners from TVC, Business News, The Eagle Online and STB Maccam, all in Lagos state. The sampling technique used for this study was the purposive sampling in order to maintain validity and reliability. A sample of questions were used for the interview. The result of this study showed generally that there are issues being faced regularly by practitioners of journalism in Nigeria and that even the government pose a challenge.

The federal government should set up an agency through the ministry of information and communications specifically to tackle the issue of risks and dangers involved in the work of professional journalists. Journalists should always prepare a security assessment in advance of a potentially dangerous assignment. Remuneration of journalists should be given utmost priority. Government should bring perpetrators of acts of impunity against journalists to book so as to serve as deterrent to others.

Keywords: Practitioners, Journalism, PR and Advertising, Nigeria, Issues, Opinions.
