The 2Seconds is an independent online newspaper and entertainment website, established in 2018 for the purpose of presenting balanced coverage of events, and of promoting the best interests of Nigeria and Africa. It owes allegiance to no political party, ethnic community, religious or other interest group. Its primary commitment is to the integrity and sovereignty of the Federation of Nigeria, and beyond that to the unity and sovereignty of Africa.
The 2Seconds is a liberal online newspaper and entertainment website, committed to the best traditions and ideals of republican democracy. It believes that it is the responsibility of the state not only to protect and defend the citizen but also to create the conditions, political, social, economic and cultural, in which all citizens may achieve their highest potential as human beings. It is committed to the principle of individual freedom but believes that all citizens have duties as well as rights.
The 2Seconds does not, in principle, object to the ideology of free enterprise, since this would be inconsistent with its commitment to individual liberty and freedom. But it believes that the state must intervene judiciously in the economic life of the nation, in order to minimize the adverse effects of free enterprise and ensure that less privileged citizens have reasonable and fair access to the basic necessities of life.
The 2Seconds will at all times uphold the need for justice, probity in public life, equal access to the nation’s resources, and equal protection under the laws of Nigeria for all citizens.
The 2Seconds believes that Nigeria is a legitimate member of the international community, but holds that she can best fulfill her international obligations only if her own security and integrity are assured.
