One Should Never Judge a Person by External Appearances

Race is a social concept used to categorize humans into large and distinct populations or groups by anatomical, cultural, ethnic, genetic, geographical, historical, linguistic, religious, and/or social affiliation. First used to refer to speakers of a common language and then to denote national affiliations, in the 17th century, people began to use the term to relate to observable physical traits. Such use promoted hierarchies favorable to differing ethnic groups. Starting from the 19th century, the term was often used, in a taxonomic sense, to denote genetically differentiated human populations defined by phenotype.

“One beautiful spring day a red rose blossomed in a forest. Many kinds of trees and plants grew there. As the rose looked around, a pine tree nearby said, “What a beautiful flower. I wish I was that lovely.” Another tree said, “Dear pine, do not be sad, we can not have everything.”

The rose turned its head and remarked, “It seems that I am the most beautiful plant in this forest.” A sunflower raised its yellow head and asked, “Why do you say that? In this forest there are many beautiful plants. You are just one of them.”

The red rose replied, “I see everyone looking at me and admiring me.” Then the rose looked at a cactus and said, “Look at that ugly plant full of thorns!” The pine tree said, “Red rose, what kind of talk is this? Who can say what beauty is you have thorns too.”

The proud red rose looked angrily at the pine and said, “I thought you had good taste! You do not know what beauty is at all. You can not compare my thorns to that of the cactus.”

What a proud flower, thought the trees …… “

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.
