about

The book tries to trace the origin of today’s Nigeria. The foundation that produced it was based on faulty principles, which came about due to the fact that both the imperial Lords and the indigenous founding fathers had no clear vision of the nature the new nation should take. The fact that many tribes, tongues and beliefs were unsystematically coerced to form this unwilling alliance added much strain to the feeble chains of unity. Every effort made to address this situation has failed so far. The author shows failures in the political, economic and religious arena while arguing that the development of the mental faculties of the Nigerian youth is the only viable option towards success. This development can only come about through comprehensive education, not based on the acquisition of paper qualifications but on the development of the entire person as an entity.
Rowland Onyenali holds a BPhil from the Urban University Rome (Italy), a BA in Religion from the University of Nigeria Nsukka (Nigeria), an MA in Theology from Duquesne University Pittsburgh (USA), and an MA in Religious Education as well as a PhD in Theology/New Testament Exegesis from the University of Würzburg (Germany).
