National Unity: A Catalyst for Sustainable Democracy in Nigeria

UMARU SAIDU ZAMARE, Usman Ahmed Karofi


One of the factors toward achieving a sustainable democracy is unity. The ethnic problem in Nigeria is indeed the National Question, around which a great deal of our national live reveals and in the name of which all sort of crime have been perpetrated against the nation. It is this issue which has produced the “we want our man syndrome in Nigerians national politics. The Nigerian socio-polity is replete with many cases of inequalities, injustices, discrimination because even the appointments into the key and core areas of the economy and political offices are usually patently lopsided and ridiculously announced without much attention paid to the feeling and sensitivity of the other groups of Nigerians. It is in line with this that this paper tries to looks at the factor of Unity in transforming Nigeria to a sustainable Democracy. The extents to which these factors contribute positively to sustainable Democracy are recommended.
