Leveraging the Media for COVID-19 Fund Accountability


Several articles and publications have tried to juxtapose the Media’s role in amplifying the need for effective resource management regarding COVID-19 with the current level of accountability in the Nigerian economy. This is primarily due to the general belief that the media is strategic in shaping public opinions and debunking misinformation about the COVID-19 response and related expenses, and rightly so. It is also no gainsaying that people often rely on the media to guide their perceptions of resource allocation and governance. As such, more responsibility is placed on media organisations to not only gather credible information but also report these data with fairness and objectivity. This makes it paramount for media organisations to invest in resource gathering to ensure that reports are backed by credible data and not merely based on hearsay and emotions.
