Democracy & Participation Social Development

15 Oct 2017  |  YourCommonwealth
Ope Adetayo, a Commonwealth Correspondent from Lagos, Nigeria, discusses the rising regional tensions within Nigeria, drawing parallels to the Nigerian Civil War of 1967-1970. He reflects on the current agitations for self-actualization, comparing them to other global secession movements such as Catalonia in Spain and Southern Cameroon. Adetayo criticizes the Nigerian government's approach to handling these tensions, suggesting that political evolution and a psychological referendum are necessary rather than mere electoral solutions. He emphasizes that the grievances of the people stem from a lack of existential wellness, not just territorial disputes. Adetayo argues that providing basic needs like food, jobs, healthcare, and a fair judicial system are the answers to the nation's agitations, and urges the government to take action towards creating a progressive system for a better future for all Nigerians.

Ope Adetayo, a Correspondent from Lagos, Nigeria, discusses the issue of societal responsibility in the context of Nigeria's challenges. He argues that from childhood, Nigerians are conditioned to blame their leaders for societal problems, without recognizing their own role in electing those leaders and perpetuating issues through tribalism, religious persuasion, and other biases. Adetayo emphasizes that both the government and the people contribute to the country's deterioration and disunity. With elections approaching in 2019, he notes the resurgence of divisive identity politics. He calls for introspection and a collective re-engineering of society, rather than seeking solutions in the separation of Nigeria's regions. Adetayo advocates for a radical change in leadership and societal attitudes to address the country's deep-rooted problems.

Ope Adetayo, a young correspondent from Nigeria, discusses the need for Africa to engage in technological innovation and scientific progress to avoid being left behind as the world advances. He highlights the continent's history of slavery and the risk of a new form of colonization through technological stagnation. Adetayo argues that Africa must contribute to global advancements and that the responsibility lies with the educational system, particularly universities, to foster practical innovation. He believes Nigeria is well-positioned to lead Africa's scientific revolution due to its substantial labor force. Adetayo calls for Africa to 'begin its journey to Mars,' metaphorically suggesting that the continent should explore the 'inaccessible areas of possibilities' in various sectors such as health, defense, and education.
