    Nigeria, Biafra & Boko Haram


    “Nigeria, Biafra, and Boko Haram” tells of the violence, poverty, and corruption that
    plagues the country and provides a pragmatic solution.

    New book “Nigeria, Biafra, and Boko Haram: Ending the Genocides Through Multistate Solution” from
    Page Publishing Author Osita Ebiem is the author's proposal for the redrawing of the political map of the
    African continent as the prerequisite for the laying of realistic national foundations for the various states in Africa.

    Osita Ebiem, an active Rights and Self Determination advocate, has completed his book “Nigeria, Biafra,
    and Boko Haram: Ending the Genocides Through Multistate Solution”: a work that provides a portrait of
    an utterly disastrous Nigeria that is often haunting and unbelievable. Though the country and its people have endured trauma beyond comprehension, Ebiem offers practical solutions, which can reroute Nigeria’s path and ultimately begin the long process of healing.

    Discussing the foundation of his insightful new work Ebiem says: “The problem is not because the extant
    states boundaries were foisted on the indigenous peoples of Africa by foreigners. The trouble is that those boundaries did not take into account the feelings and wishes, cultural diversities and sensitivities of the different peoples. After observing the way affairs are handled in Nigeria and believing that the problem can be solved, I chose to shine some light on the violations of the fundamental rights of the peoples of Nigeria and provide a way out.”

    Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Osita Ebiem’s concise writing explores the annals of
    Nigerian history and explains in clear terms the evolution of a country forced together by European
    commercial interests.

    In this book, “Nigeria, Biafra, and Boko Haram: Ending the Genocides Through Multistate Solution”, author Osita Ebiem fashions a compelling argument for finally partitioning Nigeria into distinct countries. Through the use of the multi-state solution and the principle of Self Determination, the widely diverse Nigerian ethnic identifications—Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa/Fulani—would be unimpeded in practicing their religious, cultural, and social differences and help initiate and accelerate growth, prosperity, end impunity and entrench sanity, law and order in the various emerging new countries..

    Readers who wish to experience this fascinating work can purchase “Nigeria, Biafra, and Boko Haram:
    Ending the Genocides Through Multistate Solution” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple
    iTunes store, Amazon.com, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
