In selecting the medium to use, Thisday and Sun newspaper strategy is being adopted (i.e. the print media). The bases on which this study has is to determine how adequately these newspapers covered the EFCC activities between 2009 and 2010. The research will contain content analysis research method in carrying out the study. Three hypotheses will be formulated for the study.
The hypotheses both have null and alternative hypotheses. The newspaper industry is a specialized industry. It has a unique pattern of reporting based on inverted pyramid style. More national papers are reckoned with professional approaches to news gathering and reporting. There has always been strict compliance to the pattern of reporting in other to conform with the international standard in reportorial style. Any act of deviation from this style is a professional blunder.
