Nigeria Is Coming Apart at the Seams

At best, a revitalized Biafran secessionist movement will lead to mass bloodshed. At worst, it will trigger the country's unraveling

Few if any, African borders were established by Africans. The creation artificial African nations by the colonial powers and other outside forces is what has created all of the internal strife that African nations face today. Much of things that passes for African governance nowadays, is largely influenced and guided by non-Africans. African still have not had their own industrial revolution based on the most abundant power source known since ancient Egypt, the power of the Sun. Nigeria tried to build their whole economy on crude oil they didn't even have the technology to refine. This is the common pattern for Africans, there slowly learning how to produce value added products but still are not get full market value for their rare earth minerals and other resources found only in Africa.

The first-ever Nigerian bobsled team will compete for gold


Ezinne Ukoha
Juggling Wordsmith. I have a lot to say, so bear with me

... The team is now enjoying their newfound celebrity — but for me — as a Nigerian-American — the reality of their decision to forgo the option of competing as Americans in a quest to uplift the spirits of their compatriots —demonstrates their love for a gutless country that has done nothing to earn such a gesture.
My frustration with the nation of my discontent has been documented multiple times with passionate fury and the tragic sense of longing that leads to a growing pile of disappointments that are imposing in height and depth ...
