1.1 Research background

The fact that mass media play a central role in the development process of a country is not an empty word. Mass media is generally seen as a communication channel that can simultaneously reach a unified message to a heterogeneous audience. They regularly cover all kinds of topics in economics (Meyer 2002, Soola 2004). Mass media communicate ideas and new information to target audiences in society.
Tosanisunm (2004) observed that mass media go beyond these functions to enlighten, inform and entertain, while also persuading and catalyzing social mobilization. In other words, the mass media can be viewed as a powerful information service because of its ability to penetrate all layers of society. Ability to spread topic ideas and product news. Electronic media, the focus of this study, include radio and television. These communications His media sophistication has become a modern communication marvel. At the turn of the 20th century, systems were perfected that could send electromagnetic pulses through the air without cables and transmit voice over long distances.

Electronic media are machines or institutions used to simultaneously distribute information to a wide and diverse audience. Electronic media, the channels through which information is conveyed to an audience through various types of media, represent human attempts to relate and interact with other men. It is clear that the use of technology has improved communication nationally and internationally.

Aniabona (2007), in a contribution to the impact of broadcasting in the evolving context, argues that electronic media are powerful and effective. Comprehensive education for both children and adults to achieve goals set in terms of, inter alia, economic growth, health care, political and social awareness, political stability, self-reliance and national identity and other means to achieve national goals.
Basically, media is described as serving her three functions of information, education and entertainment. These are the traditional social functions that media serve.

1.2 Problem Description

As already mentioned, the influence of electronic media, especially television, is immense, despite the challenges it faces in meeting its responsibilities. One thing is certain: electronic media are especially useful for electronic development because they are accessible and permeable to diverse and dispersed listening audiences, regardless of their reading and writing levels. However, among all these influences and contributions to political development in rural Nigeria, there is insufficient funding and inadequate management of electronic media to effectively carry out these influences of political development. And if these media are underfunded and spend their revenues on keeping their businesses alive, it makes me wonder how these media can contribute to economic development.
