Management of Inter and Intra States Boundary Conflicts in Nigeria: An Empirical Approach
by Femi Fatile
The sight of official surveyors being harassed or chased with charms and dangerous weapons speaks a lot about the vexing problem of setting state boundaries and demarcation lines in Nigeria, from the time of its independence to modern times.
Management of Inter and Intra States Boundary Conflicts in Nigeria, by Olufemi Jacob Fatile, works through the problematic socio-cultural aspects of federalism by a young promising nation. It lays the achievements and shortcomings of past administrations, regimes, and local and statewide officials, as well as the local people in determining border issues.
Exhaustive in research methodologies, Fatile gives an insightful assessment of the ongoing boundary issues in his country. In the end, he offers his own recommendations from the treasure-trove of knowledge accumulated through such painstaking research as it would entail in Nigeria.About the Author
