    Interesting analysis. Home truth we are not willing to tell ourselves. We are a people that live in self denial because we view every effort and intervention in our national life through the narrow prism of ethnicity and tribalism especially when it confers an undue advantage on us. My hope is that enlightened minds should rise beyond primordial interests and prepare Nigeria for 21st century challenges.
