ABSTRACT
From  all  indications,  it  has  become  obvious  that  the  mass  media  has  a  great  role  to  play  in  the  management  of  human  rights  abuse  in  Nigeria,  taking  into  cognizance  their  role  in  the  society  which  includes  surveillance  of  the  society,  correlation  of  the  various  ideas  and  transmission  of  the  various  interplay  of  ideas  amongst  the  different  segment  of  society.  This  is  where  the  mass media’s  role  comes  into  play.  In  that  they  (populace )  are  better  enlightened  about  their  rights  and  privileges  as  citizens  of  Nigeria;  so  that    as  a  people  they  can  ultimately  know  what  ought  to  be  and  what ought  not  to be.

And  the  government  also  will  be  better  positioned  to  its  roles  as  custodian  of  the  people  as  government  is  meant  for  the  benefit  of   the  greater  good  of  the  people,  that  is  respecting  the  rights  and  liberties  of  individuals  as  citizens  of  this  great  country  Nigeria.

Unless  and except  the  mass  media  lives  up  to  its  responsibilities,  it  cannot  and  will  not  be  an  effective  tool  in  the  management  of  human  right  abuse  in  Nigeria.

Finally,  we  acknowledge  the  contribution  and  understanding  of  the  members  of  the  group,  working  together  has  been  a  wonderful  experience  and  for  every  other  person  who  contributed  one  way  or  other,  God  bless  you  all.  Amen.
