Unmasking operational supportive Rhetoric in Nigeria: A recipe for national Integration
      Ihejirika, Cardinal I.C., EDODI, SampsoN Obok
Abstract: Nigeria is presently overheated with calls for secession and restructuring. This is consequent upon perceived socio-political and economic imbalance, which has bifurcated the polity into the classes of agitators against and beneficiaries of the operative unjust politico-economic system. While those at the receiving end of the imbalance and disequity clamour for re-organization or total renegotiation of the country’s unity, the beneficiaries of the present unjust arrangement utilize the mass media to spread their slogans, propaganda and rhetoric. This is done in order to hide the reality of imbalance. This study therefore argues for a demystification of three identified supportive rhetoric operational in Nigeria. It recommends the reawakening and/or raising of critical consciousness among the citizens as a first step towards a praxis of reflection and action, which is hoped to stall this oppressive and manipulative system. The researcher employs the expository and analytical methods of inquiry and further suggests that the unveiling of these rhetoric will encourage transparency and mutual trust, which are pre-requisites for national integration and cohesion
