The Unmaking of Nigeria Federalism

 

By Remi Oyeyemi

 

 “Conscience is an open wound, only the truth can heal it” -    Uthman Dan Fodio (1754-1817)

 

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”  George Santayana, The Life of Reason, Volume 1, 1905

 

It was Uthman Dan Fodio, a Fulani and great Islamic scholar who described  “Conscience” as “an open wound” that could only be healed by “the truth.” Whatever served as the inspiration for this concept could not be anything other than awesome. In fact, one of the finest stables in the Nigerian media market, The Guardian, definitely shares the depthness of this thought as it adopted this in its logo: “Conscience nurtured by truth.” The fact that this same Dan Fodio is the great grandfather of Sir Ahmadu Bello, the late Sultan of Sokoto and Premier of Northern Region, the man who has played a prominent role in the Nigerian vicissitudes makes it highly imperative that we all open our “consciences” and allow “the truth” to heal them, if Nigeria must be saved.
