FEDERALIZING ESANLAND IN POST-COLONIAL NIGERIA: CHALLENGES AND PROSPECTS


Esanland
By Williams Ehizuwa Orukpe
Department of History And International Studies University Of Benin

Abstract
         
This paper examines federalization through state creation as an instrument of nation building in Nigeria. Nation building efforts in 
multi-ethnic societies seek to facilitate nationalism and development. But in Nigeria, we find that the paths to nationalism so far adopted, instead of yoking her peoples into one bundle to promote development have paradoxically disintegrated and underdeveloped them. Hence, using Esanland as a case study and the political economy analysis framework, this paper seeks to historicize this issue. We seek to interrogate the problem of political integration without corresponding economic integration bedeviling rural areas in Nigeria. And to demonstrate that Nigeria’s adumbrated federalism is partly responsible for rural economic underdevelopment; and the economic disconnect between rural and urban economies in the nation. This paper maintains that rural underdevelopment in Nigeria is currently fueling ethnic-nationalism and crises of confidence in Nigeria’s federalism; and socio-economic dystopia in Esanland and other rural areas.

ESAN FOLKS, DID YOU HAVE HEATH INSURANCE?


By Ramatu U Bako

One of the under-utilized, under branded and under popular policies of our government is the National health Insurance Scheme (NHIS). Or the Private Health Insurance Scheme (PHIS) for those not working with or for government.

There is absolutely no reason why people should be going around looking for money to go to hospital or buy prescription in this country. It is appalling that in this day and age, people die not due to illness but due to the time lag occasioned by relatives running around trying to raise money to pay for test or medicines etc

ESAN REPORT:


Interview with Hon. Sergius O. Ogun, 
Federal House of Representative. Esan North East/Esan South East By WPPJr

"We need the citizens, elites to constantly probe the State Government and Local Government, “what is our revenue monthly profiles and what did you do with it, what projects are they initiating since elected, and how are these projects impacting the people”. Who is talking – nobody?
