1.1     BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The destruction impact of corruption in the live of nation throughout the world is acknowledged. Corruption is perhaps the most important factor that is impeding the accelerated socio-economic and political transformation of developing or fewer developing countries (LDCS) of the world. In fact, it is recognized by development scholars that the level of reduction in corruption has a very direct link to the level of economic development of nations in the worlds.

The media and civil society groups has been identified as the two very important weapons to fight the scourage of corruption worldwide. In Nigeria, the independent press, by which we refer to the news papers and the news magazines, have been actively involved in checking the excesses of governments and as well as others in positions of authorities. The most focused and far-reaching war against corruption in Nigeria could be said to have started during the regime of the erst while president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo especially with the establishment of the two Anti-graft bodies. The Independent Corrupt Practices and related offences Commission (ICPC) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The establishment of two bodies provided great impetus for the press to perform the constitutionally ordained role effectively watching over the activities of the government so as to ensure efficient survive delivery. Despite the student criticism that the war was biased and the agencies were being used to witch-hunt enemies of the government, the press still provided great support to the anti-graft agencies in its activities.
