The Hysteria Over The Nigerian Census



I have already spoken and commented on the on-going Population and Housing Census in Nigeria on World Have Your Say produced by Priyah Shah of the BBC World Service.

The religious and tribal hysterics of Nigerian petty politics should be dismissed.
The misled militants of Members of the Movement for the Actualisation of a Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) attacked and disrupted the census in the South Eastern region of Nigeria. MASSOB is a mob of sick tribalists who have wrong notions of our history. They think the Ibos are actually Jews.

For more on the controversial issues raised, read Sola Odunfa's "Nigeria's counting controversy" on BBC Focus on Africa magazine

When the smoke clears, I will add more to my opinions.

Keshi,
We believe in what is best for humanity above and beyond petty acts of selfishness and foolishness.

I am totally against tribalism as much as I am totally against racism. And I am totally against all violations of our fundamental human rights.

Free to live and free to love as long as what we do will not endanger the lives of others.
