Being Kano state the most populous state in Nigeria became the centre of democratic freedom in the northern part of the country as well as southern part, freedom of information became less active until May 28, 2011 that the then president Goodluck Jonathan signed the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) into law.
The FOIA is a legislation that guarantees the right to information within the control of public institutions to all Nigerians regardless of age, class or occupation.
Media and Information Literacy (MIL) in developing countries like Nigeria is a challenging field of media development today.
On a more fundamental level MIL- understood as an ability of individuals is directly linked to the human rights to freedom of information, expression, and education which are violated in many countries, but in Nigeria the FOIA already signed into law for more than seven years.
Does the law benefitted Nigerians? or it was just a law, like other laws? And how MIL and FOIA became relevant in term of right rights to freedom of information? After the law was signed the film industry in northern Nigeria (Kannywood) filled markets and television stations with new Hausa language movies.
