Nigger, the offensively degrading word continues to wreak havoc with thousands, perhaps millions of unsuspected African Americans lives every day. Slavery may have set in motion this process of self-hatred among us, but today its infectious disease is rapidly spreading to greater proportions causing irreparable damage to the mentality of nearly an entire nation of people.
The persistent trend of insecurity with a corresponding prediction of a looming disintegration of Nigeria which cynics often argue as the necessary panacea for resolving the crisis confronting the nation necessitates the need to re-examine all institutions that have the potentials and mandate to shoulder the campaign for national unity. In this study, the spotlight focuses on the media. Besides their wider coverage capacity, the media are reputed to possess unrivalled power to influence their users. Sadly, fifty three years since independence, the Nigerian media have remained committed to championing regional and sectional interests, with little or no emphasis on national integration. This paper therefore, through a critical study of the Hausa film “Karangiya” (2012) explores a recent effort by Nigeria Home Video towards the promotion of national integration. The paper assesses both the overt and subtle forces of unity traceable in the film, bringing home the point that the media can still be utilized for the propagation of the gospel of peace and national unity much as they have hitherto been used for regional and sectional propaganda.
MY GRADE 12 STORY
(MASEALAMA SECONDARY SCHOOL)
I am grade 12 student who has just recently graduated. You might call me accomplished, and in a way, I am, but not in the way you’d think. 12 years of pouring over text books and being lined up to be judged in front of my peers has not made me any more intelligent. I can tell you the first 45 digits of Pi and I can explain to you the difference between an acid and a base, I can recite the Pythagorean Theorem in my sleep, I will recite lines out of a textbook like they are a religion. But I cannot tell you the value of security, or of kindness. The distinct contrast between personal health and personal gain. I can tell you in grade 10 four of my classmates attempted to take their own lives before finals. I can tell you our counsellors office is always booked. I can tell you how when I didn’t understand something in AP Chemistry my teacher asked me to leave if I could not participate in his class. I merely asked him to explain a question. Instead of doing his job and teaching, he told me to leave. Told me I was not good enough to be there. Mistakes are viewed as failure in these hallways. A wrong answer is a sin you must atone to, not a human error, but a flaw so grand it defines your entire life course. There is no “average” here. We all must exceed expectations. Do your parents know that a grade that is considered average is a “C”? When I got a C in fourth grade my parents grounded me for a month. They said I was lazy and stupid and incompetent and that I’d better smarten up and stop fooling around. I never fooled around. I am driven by a deep need to impress others. I never fool around. I worked and worked and worked, with a deep hollow of anxiety in my chest. I have never been good at History, but I worked and…

This is the only way by which the unity and integrity of the nation will be restored forever and nobody with the bad intention will dare to look into our nation. This unity and integrity of nation was also dream of poet, Bankim Chand Chatterjee who turned this precious dream into reality by using lovely script as a tool. Nobody is having the authority of breaking the unity of the nation using the same tool.
