GLOBALIZATION A MYTH OR REALITY by Melvin Umunna, Pol Sciences

At last, the long anticipated and much talked about American general elections has been finalized and against all odds Donald Trump emerged victorious against his rival opponent Mrs. Hilary Clinton and he is now the President Elect of the United States of America pending the inauguration ceremony which holds on January 20, 2017. After the unprecedented victory, Trump gave his first speech in which he made an emphatic statement which was “we are taking back our United States of America”. The question begging here is that was America ever in the holds of someone else? However, what can be deduced from this statement is that nationalism is gaining momentum once again.

Earlier this year, the world was thrown into amazement and bewildered when the United kingdom held a referendum as to it’s pulling out of the European Union popularly known as “BREXIT” which was voted by the citizens in a resounding majority.

The call for Brexit was also in line with what I call the nationalistic force or tendencies ravaging even the most developed part of the world.

United Kingdom and United States of America belong to the United Nations Security Council and are part of the super powers in world politics, with the cause of event which have occurred in both countries one can say emphatically that despite the calls for an integrated world system and for a globalization , one can now see that Nationalism can never be shoved aside.

Nations of the world project their national interest through their actions and inactions and these events shaping the two most liberal Nations in world has proven that the effect of Nationalism cannot be overemphasized and that the idea of having a global integrated system may just be a myth and an idea which can never be fully accomplished.

By the way, if we are to engage the idea of globalization, one could argue that the advancement of the world has been due to the tearing of national boundaries and frontiers which have fostered technological, scientific and economic growth. Though the argument has its validity, looking at what the world have achieved through the idea of globalization but the big question here is that can Nationalism be displaced for a more globalized and integrated world?

With the occurrence of these events, one would ask what is the hope of migrants from Africa and the rest of the underdeveloped places of the world into Britain and America? What is the faith of millions of African migrants running to seek greener pastures in the UK and US?

These event would be a defining moment in the African Climate as we seek to redress our political and economic system. The heavy dependence on these two nations by the underdeveloped African state may have come to a halt as even the developed states are seeming to claim back what is theirs.

It time for African leaders and governments to rise from the shackles of underdevelopment, de-link from the imperial powers as suggested by Economist scholar Rodney 1972 and build a strong,productive, virile and United Africa.

NIGERIA AT 56, HOW DID WE GET HERE? By KOSOKO OYEYEMI [@_olayemi_] 

PRELUDE;

Here’s a piece of heresy, different from the one you’re accustomed to, Britain didn’t travel to Africa sic Nigeria just to civilize and preach Christianity to us, thus at the first instance the creation of Nigeria by Lord Lugard was purely based on business and developing Britain’s economy, in other to take over the colony that would later be known as Nigeria, The British government paid the royal Niger company a whopping sum of 865,000 pounds which was a huge amount of money(Even Mr Darosha would not travel that far and wide just to preach democracy and Christianity after spending that amount of money ), so let’s establish a fact, while most developed countries were born out of shared identities , ideals , characteristics and goals we were born just to fulfil a business purpose and that purpose we fulfilled till October 1 , 1960
