The Key Challenges To Peace In Nigeria

Nigeria is faced by various devastating political and socio-economic conditions, with about 250 multicultural ethnic nationalities.

Nigeria is plagued by religious, ethnic, communal and resource conflict. Large resources and benefits from oil wealth could not touch the lives of the people. Allegiances to ethnic groups come first before the Nigeria state. The recent resource control agitations in the Niger Delta have given birth to various militia groups. The rise of vigilante and separatist groups threatens the hard earned democracy, the growth and development and the coexistence of Nigeria as a nation.

Unfortunately democracy that seems to be a dream come true is fast turning a nightmare. The April 2007 polls which will mark the first change of government from an incumbent civilian government to another have been described as a test that will make or mar the largest country in Africa. Many of the challenges faced by Nigeria today were analyzed in this paper with possible solutions that will awaken Nigeria to its position in Africa and avert the 1967-1970 civil war experience.

One may think that the biggest obstacle to African development is poverty, but like Ebere Onwundiwe argued, “The strategic danger to Africa’s expected rebirth is the disintegration of Nigeria, the largest political concentration of African people in our continent” with a population of 140 million people, any major conflict is a disaster to the continent.

Nigeria is also another point of concern, as “one of the potential areas of instability” according to Porter J. Goss the former U.S. Director of Central Intelligence Agency, in his address to the Congress. His fear was that in the southern Nigeria, military is still struggling to contain militia groups in the oil-producing area, the continued ethnic violence that frequently erupt throughout the country and the threat of Muslim population.

But as the Nigerian government struggle with the various challenges that faces her, it has been emphasized that as a political and economic giant in Africa, it future can either be a shining example for the continent or a cautionary tale of what happens when great potential is sabotaged by poor governance, lack of leadership and and pervasive corruption.

Reason for the kidnapping and immediate inaction of the government

“sabotage, poor governance, lack of leadership and pervasive corruption”

We ALL are ONE!!
