More > independent African country, has not been a bed of roses. With a series of coups and counter-coups, the mistrust of one ethnic group another has not abated in over a century of her political history. Recently, having picked up the democratic process where she left off subsequent to the first military intervention in 1966, there is every reason to believe the political class has learned nothing and forgotten nothing. The face of the current Fourth Republic as depicted in the current work calls for prudence if the country is to move on in fulfilment of her destiny. To outsiders, there is barely any concrete evidence to back the suspicion that the country is at the crossroads.

There is a score card of poverty and inequity. On top of the fragile unity, the deceit of successive leadership what with the uncontrollable assault on public assets, an indictment that she is not getting it right, Nigeria at the lowest ebb of the twelve OPEC countries with USD1064 GDP is yet to hit her potentials.< Less

More > could only have sent a strong message that all things being equal the opposition could defeat the party in power on a continent notorious for a subsisting culture of electoral malpractices and the sit-tight syndrome.

Historians and demography experts... More > have continued to ponder if the British adventurers that did the fusion took time off to consider what the end product would look like. It is only real that more than a century since the capricious merger of the South with the North, the talk of amity and unity in diversity to forge ahead as a nation has not left the country. Aside from the continued bloody Islamist unrest, mass youth unemployment and infrastructural decay that are sure indices of a state under stress, the country is beset with an endless quest for self-determination by major ethnic nationalities.

More > teach the country a bitter lesson, carving out its name in gory tales of woe with reckless abandon. For a spell, the perpetration of horror, maiming and mindless killings of innocent Nigerians including defenceless schoolchildren and women culminated in arrant disorganization to governance in the entire North East of the country.
