Nigerians have been urged not to be afraid of engaging in dialogue among themselves, as it remains the only means of resolving the persisting imbalance in the polity for a better country to emerge. Also, Nigerian scholars and intellectuals have been flayed for sheepishly subordinating their high calling of civilizing the polity to politicians simply because of the positions of power they occupy.

These were the views expressed yesterday in Lagos at the launch of a book, How and Why the Yoruba Fought and Lost the Biafra-Nigeria Civil War, written by public intellectual, Dr. Jimanze Ego-Alowes.

Special guest and Managing Director, The Sun, Mr. Eric Osagie, said the imbalance and level of deprivation in the country as blessed as Nigeria were such that have created anger among a majority in the citizens.

Osagie particularly condemned the tyrannical tendency of the three major ethnic nationalities of Huasa-Fulani, Yoruba and Igbo, who appropriate certain national institutions to themselves at the expense and exclusion of the other minorities groups.
