Africa’s new sets of complex challenges dissected at Achebe 2012 Colloquium

In effect, governments like Egypt, Libya and Tunisia, to name a few, are faced with the daunting task of securing a democratic state, foreign to their current political DNA developed from decades of dictatorship. The Central and Eastern regions are undergoing an incredible time of turmoil and instability; to add, South Sudan, as recent as July 9th 2011, celebrated its new national identity and independence from Sudan. West Africa is yet to find an answer to the evolving proliferation and sophistication of terrorism. Africa’s Southern Region still wrestles with matters of race, politics, economic problems, AIDS, housing scarcity and peace building.

Fashola on Achebe’s Biafra explosive book, live at Achebe colloquium. By Chido Nwangwu

Gov. Fashola, standing at the podium almost 15 feet away from Achebe, told the galaxy of African, American, European and Asian scholars, researchers, students, activists and business executives that the heat generated by the book almost made him look for a reason to avoid the event rescheduled for him from the 2011 colloquium, almost 300 days ago.

Ojukwu’s will, Bianca and fight over property.

Keen watchers of the Ikemba Nnewi, after his 1989 publication of “Because I am Involved,” must have noted his marital evolution. His life as a married man can be divided into two phases: pre- and post-Bianca. The post-Bianca phase was arguably the most stable and balanced, either because he had become wiser with age or because love for his young beautiful bride tempered the exuberance that defined his previous adventures. Whatever it was, we saw Ikemba for the first time consciously making attempts to earn a living, and to become a more responsible husband and doting father. He was ably supported and encouraged along this path by the lady that he worshipped and adored. Bianca, as daughter of another aristocrat, easily blended into the role of business partner, gaining access to political contacts, from the south east to the north-central regions, to represent her husband and provide for their young children.
