Future Tense is a book of answers: the discussions will serve the interest of those who want a first glimpse at the media environment in Nigeria about which there is scanty literature; even the existing ones are largely filled with outdated information.
Future Tense is a book of conversations: it draws on the perspectives of media professionals and scholars attempting to answer some and more of the questions posed above.
Future Tense is a collection of diverse, passionately held opinions, proffered just as would be in any gathering of Nigerians at a favourite joint. The conversations are not the stuffy proceedings of an academic conference, weighed down by footnotes, but the heated musings of several stakeholders, some involved with NEXT, all connected by a shared interest in the media industry.
