  • State-sponsored “Feminism” and women empowerment in Nigeria: The case
           of the better life programme, 1987 – 1993
    • Authors: Jeremiah Dibua
      Abstract: This paper argues that although the issues of first ladyism and the role of women in the transition politics of the Babangida regime are important in the examination of the state-sponsored Better Life Programme (BLP), the significance of the programme can, however, be better understood if it is situated within the context of the massive  opposition to the neo-liberal Structural Adjustment Programme (SAP), and attempts at delegitimising the opposition while creating an alternative basis of support for the  Babangida regime from among rural dwellers. Since it was believed that the opposition was mainly urban-based, the regime decided to woo the rural dwellers by sponsoring  various supposedly rural transformation and grassroots empowerment projects, with the BLP being one of such projects. However, given the antecedents of the BLP, the  programme soon became a reflection of the undemocratic, corrupt and decadent  neocolonial Nigerian state and so, did not succeed in either empowering the rural women or in creating a new basis of popular support for the Babangida regime.

  • Provincialism as Nationalism: Nigerian nationalism and its discontents
    • Authors: Olutayo Adesina
      Abstract: There seems to be a fundamental disconnect between Nigerians’ search for  nationhood and the strategies for achieving this. Arguments made by many Nigerian leaders tended to suggest that national unity can only be served by satisfying some entrenched provincial interests that are geographically concentrated and politically organized. So, while many parade nationalist credentials, what propels them range from the ethnic to the religious and regional considerations. The bewildering  diversity that has come to define the country has created a wide sense of  antagonism and suspicion. The attempt by the colonial government and some  regional elites to create super-ethnic groups and subordinate other ethnic groups  has further contributed to the tension. Years of living together have not only  continued to entrench the mistrust and antagonism but unfortunately created a rabid sense of ethnic and or regional uneasiness. Unfortunately, all these have coalesced into a kind of provincialism that has bred a debilitating sense of entitlement. Every attempt to heal the breach has continued to fail due to the inability to come to terms with our “Nigerianness.” This article is devoted to identifying the underpinning  historical flaws that led to this crisis. While there is no single answer for this, the  paper posits that nationalism has been defined to mean a process where the  interests of particular groups or regions must be paramount. It further discusses how regionalization has blended with ethnicity to create a provincialism that has refused to come to an end several decades after independence. This has severely circumscribed Nigerian capacities to work towards a common goal.

  • Colonial land policies in Lagos
    • Authors: Lanre Davies
      Abstract: Land policies in colonial Lagos were variegated. They alternated between freehold at inception of colonialism in 1861, and customary tenure at the beginning of the twentieth century and later coalesced into a combination of both. The variegated nature of the colonial government's land policies created a lot of confusion in land matters, which often led to litigations. The same difficulties that plagued colonial legislators on land matters continue to dog the postcolonial Nigerian government. The paper argues that colonial policy influenced the administration of justice in land matters in colonial Lagos, where the judiciary operated within the framework that colonial authority had to be paramount otherwise, it would be ineffective and colonial rule might be impossible.

  • Historicising the budgetary problems of Ghana and Nigeria under Democratic
           Governance, 1999 – 2010: Common lessons in Fiscal Management
    • Authors: Adetunji Ojo Ogunyemi
      Abstract: The 1990s were periods in the history of Africa that many states on the continent which had hitherto been governed by military dictatorships began to embrace democracy. Under the military dictatorship and their similar civilian variants, the economies of these states had witnessed utter ruination partly as a result of IMF or World Bank advised economic restructuring policies and partly because of mismanagement by the dictators. The result was massive unemployment, fiscal collapse of the revenue-expenditure balance and huge debts overhang. Ghana and Nigeria, both West African states, were caught in the web of these failed economic policies, the most negative consequence of which was budgetary failures in the areas of revenue-expenditure balance, deficit financing, huge external indebtedness and massive poverty. Relying on a combination of data obtained on the fiscal operations of both countries as derived from their respective central banks, finance ministries and Annual Appropriation Acts as passed by their parliaments, this paper adopts historical and comparative methods of interrogation to analyse the budgetary performances of these two countries from 1999 to 2010 by presenting a history of their budgetary problems and challenges with respect to how they applied socio-economic policies in addressing their revenues and expenditure activities.

  • Land Acquisition, Cocoa Farming and Internal Migration in Ondo Division,
           1947 – 1972
    • Authors: Samson Adesola Adesote, Rasheed Oyewole Olaniyi
      Abstract: This paper attempts to answer some fundamental questions regarding the availability of land for cocoa farming in the growth of internal migration in Ondo Division of Western Nigeria between 1947 and 1972. Among these questions are: What factor (s)  facilitated the influx of migrants into Ondo Division between 1947 and 1972? What role did land play in the development of cocoa farming in Ondo Division between 1947 and 1972? Was there any relationship between cocoa farming and internal migration in Ondo Division between 1947 and 1972? The paper, however, argues that the  availability of suitable and fertile land coupled with its easy accessibility constituted major pull and push factors that facilitated the influx of cocoa migrant farmers (mainly from the old Oyo Province with a few from Abeokuta and Ilorin Provinces , among  others) to Ondo Division during this period. It concludes that the presence of large  number of migrants has helped to shape the structure of the economy of the area and as well build decisive socio-political and economic relations between them and the host communities.

  • Inter-ethnic Marriages, “Indigeneship,” Women’s Rights and National
           Integration in Nigeria Since 1979
    • Authors: Bernard B. Fyanka
      Abstract: This paper investigates gender inequalities relating to indigene-ship in Nigeria. The growing population of mixed ethnic marriages in Nigeria has created challenges  relating to indigene-ship especially with regards to women who have married into ethnic groups other than theirs. The growing population of women who are not living in their states of origin due to inter-ethnic marriages encounter discrimination that is both gender and ethnic bound. These forms of discriminations are mostly  enshrined in customary laws which need to change in order to initiate a bottom up approach to dismantling the system. The study uses the federal character principle as a frame of reference for analysing the extent of discrimination against women beginning from the federal level to the local council levels. It argues that the principle should be interpreted as an instrument of affirmative action for women and a provision should be made for redefining the indigene-ship of women in inter-ethnic marriages. From federal statutory discrimination, the paper narrows its discourse to how this form of discrimination impacts on rural women especially those in inter-ethnic marriages. Land is central to indigene-ship, however most communal  societies in Nigeria uphold customary laws that do not encourage land ownership by women in inter-ethnic marriages and women in general. This will invariably affect both ethnic and economic integration of women who are the bulwark of food security. While utilising the historical methodology, the study also incorporates surveys  conducted by other researchers. A critical review of the federal character principle and gender biased customary laws is suggested. This recommendation is largely based on findings that point to the fact that although a good amount of advocacy regarding the gender component of the federal constitution has been on for some time, no concrete actions have been advanced by government to solve the problem.

  • The Dilemma of Bureaucratic Rationalisation: The Role of the World Health
           Organisation during the Nigerian Civil War and its Aftermath, 1967 –
    • Authors: Benjamin Uchenna Anaemene
      Abstract: Despite the widely publicised humanitarian condition during the Nigerian Civil War  (1967-1970), the World Health Organisation (WHO) was conspicuously absent in the provision of emergency assistance to the war affected areas. This article employs the bureaucratic framework to explain the inaction of the WHO in the provision of  emergency assistance during the war. The article argues that in the face of its constitutional constraints, the WHO was able to provide indirect supportive assistance to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). In addition, the impact of the Organisation was also felt in the aftermath of the war through the restoration of the  health services in the Eastern Region and the provision of assistance during the Second and Third Development Plans. The article concludes that while it is understandable that member states are not willing to submit their autonomy and sovereignty to the WHO,  the sovereignty concept should give way to the coordination efforts directed by the  WHO during public health emergencies.
