Oldest Newspaper in Nigeria

The oldest newspaper in Nigeria is the “Nigerian Chronicle,” which was first published in 1862 during the colonial era. It began as a government publication and later evolved into a commercial newspaper. It’s important to note that the landscape of Nigerian newspapers has changed over the years, and while the Nigerian Chronicle is one of the oldest, it may not be in continuous publication in the present day.
