The Book
The tipping point is here; something has to give. It is no longer tenable to argue that the labour of our heroes past shall not be in vain is a justification for Odi, Zaki Biam or Baga. Those scars on our history are actually a desecration of the collective memory of our heroes past . . . it is necessary, in our present circumstance, for all true patriots to appreciate that keeping Nigeria together does not and will never equate promoting peace among her peoples. For some odd reasons, many Nigerians do not see the difference; hence, the consistent century-long failure in our approach to confronting the issues that contend with true nation-building.
For the avoidance of doubt, what Britain achieved on January 1, 1914 was the fusion of Colony of Lagos, Northern and Southern Protectorates into a distinct geographical entity – a country of diverse nations only. The legitimate expectation of the world as Nigeria turns one hundred (1914-2014) is that we would accomplish the task of amalgamating the bodies, souls and spirits of the various peoples of Nigeria into a nation truly so-called.
