Osinbajo, others mark 60th anniversary of WNTV, first TV station in Africa

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has led other dignitaries in marking the 60th anniversary of the Western Nigeria Television, first TV station in Africa.

Taking to his Twitter handle @ProfOsinbajo on Thursday, the VP noted that exactly 60 years ago today, the (late) Premier of the Western Region, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, then flanked by Governor General, Sir John Rankine; Chief Anthony Enahoro and Chief T.T. Solaru, formally entered the history books by inaugurating the Western Nigeria Television, the first in Africa.

The VP noted that the October 31, 1959 feat was ahead of countries such as China, who inaugurated its own first TV in 1962; Canada in 1967, New Zealand in 1960, and several European countries, including the Netherlands in 1960, Ireland in 1961, Greece in 1966 and Malta in 1962.

"we celebrate what is possible," the VP noted.

According to Wiki citation, Western Nigeria Television was the first television service station launched in Nigeria and Africa.

It was a partnership between Overseas Rediffusion and the Western regional government.

Its first broadcast was on October 31, 1959. However, in 1962, the government parted ways with its foreign partner, and WNTV came under the sole control of the regional government.

In 1975, the Federal Government established Nigerian Television Authority network service and acquired all TV stations in Nigeria to form the network. "WNTS then became NTA Ibadan." Wiki reports, citing relevant authorities.

Continuing, it notes that WNTV was created as a partnership between the Western regional government and a foreign firm.

"It was designed to be an educational tool for the masses and also a medium to beam local culture, foreign news and aims of the government to the homes of people in the region.

"Establishment of the station was enhanced by a constitutional change which removed broadcasting from an exclusive item to a concurrent item and political resolution of the regional premier, Obafemi Awolowo and the regional minister of Information, Anthony Enahoro," it added.

USA Africa Dialogue Series - Re: Akin Ogundiran: The Historian and Archaeologist of Yoruba-Atlantic becomes Chancellor Professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Congratulations Prof Ogundiran.  We wish you well.

Akin Ogundiran: The Historian and Archaeologist of Yoruba-Atlantic becomes Chancellor Professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte


I am pleased to share the good news that Professor Akin Ogundiran has been named Chancellor's Professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. This distinguished title is a university-wide honor reserved for a full professor who has attained outstanding scholarly achievement in a professional field, and excelled in interdisciplinary research, teaching, and service in more than one department or college. He is the third professor in the university's history to attain this distinguished rank—  

Professor Ogundiran has always been as exceptional as he was promising. He was a graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University where he bagged BA in Archaeology (First Class Honors) in 1988. This is where and when our interactions began, and that was where we sensed he was a student who would be greater than his teachers. We are proud of him, as one of the best students produced by Ife. He earned his M.Sc. in archaeology from the University of Ibadan in 1990. Ten years later, he received his doctorate in archaeology from Boston University. Within eight years, he became a professor of History and a major pillar in African Studies. In my book, The African Diaspora: Slavery, Modernity and Globalization, I devoted Chapter 10 to his oeuvre, stating in one of the key paragraphs that:

In connecting West Africa to the Atlantic economy, Ogundiran is pointing to what could be characterized as the metabolic rift between supply and demand; African economies were on the supply side of the global division of labor that compelled them to produce for the Atlantic economy and, at the same time, to consume products from external sources. This division of labor, and the productive mechanism unleashed by the demand side, ultimately had implications for all aspects of institutions. Ogundiran has to grapple not only with the meaning of local history, but also with the definition of the world in which the local is situated against the background of rapidly changing events. And if, as he treats the local, he engages in issues around production and trade—as all his objects indicate—he is forced to engage in the understanding of how society relates to nature: that is, how humans ultimately relate to their environments, using and destroying them at the same time, and sometimes renewing them as well.

           Ogundiran's career span ranged from journalism to the academics. He taught at three universities between 1989 and 1993: Ambrose Alli University (then Bendel State University), Delta State University, and the University of Benin, in their respective Departments of History. He also had a stint as a news editor and journalist at the Broadcasting Corporation of Oyo State, both in the radio and television divisions. After his doctoral degree, he accepted the appointment of Assistant Professor of History at Florida International University in 2001 where he earned tenure and promotion to the rank of Associate Professor within five years. He also served as Director of the African New World Studies. He moved to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2008 as Chair of the Africana Studies Department and Professor of Africana Studies, Anthropology + History.

          As a distinguished scholar, Ogundiran has devoted his career to working at the intersections of many disciplines: history, archaeology, folklore, geography, ethnography, and geochemistry. His collaboration with many experts has made this possible. He has particularly used his transdisciplinary training and interests to explore many aspects of Yoruba history from the 12th century to the present. He launched several archaeology projects from the central Yoruba and Edo regions to the Yoruba northwest to answer questions on regional interactions, the birth of societies, and the impacts of globalization on social formations, as well as the sociology and political economy of Yoruba cities, kingdoms, and empires. As a result of these studies, he developed the first and only comprehensive chronological framework for Yoruba history, covering more than a thousand years. He also made the stunning discovery of an ancient town buried under the canopies of Osun Grove, a Nigerian national monument of a UNESCO World Heritage site. Two years ago, he led the archaeological team that identified the ancient city of Bara where the remains of the past Alaafin of Oyo were buried between ca. 1615 and 1830. This last discovery is part of his long-term research on the archaeology and history of the Oyo Empire.

A tireless fieldworker, he has described himself as an archaeologist who is interested in local history in order to have a better understanding of global history. He said,  "Much of what we know today about world history and the place of Africa in it must be revised based on the original research that we archaeologists are doing. Every day, we bring something new to the historical archive that challenges popular knowledge of the past." He has been a strong advocate that the model of history education that Africa inherited from Europe must be set aside for a new interdisciplinary method. In an influential keynote address that he delivered in 2011 at the Institute of African Studies, University of Ibadan, he called for a new curriculum of history that will include archaeologists, historians, and other scholars, from sociology to philosophy and art history. According to him:

We will need to return to the kind of eclectic methodologies that the late Professor Saburi Biobaku and his collaborators outlined in Sources of Yoruba History nearly 40 years ago... We need in our departments of history, not only people who can use the colonial archives to write colonial-era history, but also archaeologists, historical linguists, historical anthropologists, art historians, ethnographers, etc., who can interdisciplinarily interrogate our precolonial history. I say, for any university in Nigeria to be a major player as a fountain of consciousness, we must pull down the walls that separate history and archaeology. As long as these walls exist, we will continue to copy Western historiography, and Western archaeology. Let us pull down this wall that divides our labor into miniscule fragments, and liberate ourselves from the silos of colonial construction of history. It is time to reconfigure a new humanistic curriculum that will enable us to develop a liberating paradigm of culture and history.


Ogundiran has his boots on the ground, not only in the field but also in the classroom. His passion to mentor a new generation of scholars in interdisciplinary studies of history and archaeology led to his appointment as a Visiting Professor of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Ibadan where he mentors graduate students in field research methods and social theories. He is also an External Examiner in the Department of Archaeology and Heritage Studies at Dar es Salaam University, Tanzania for archaeology postgraduate studies, and a Gaduate Supervisor of African History at The University of Bonn, Germany. He has also held a visiting appointment at the University of Cambridge and has been selected to serve on the advisory committee of the Shanghai Archaeology Forum in China.

          Ogundiran's scholarship extends to the diapora where he has explored the impacts of modernity, capitalism, and the slave trade on the creation of Africa's Atlantic culture, cultural continuities between Africa and the Americas, and the trajectories of Yoruba cultural legacies in the Atlantic world. Ogundiran's research has been supported by several institutions including the Carnegie Foundation, Social Science Research Council, Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, National Endowment for the Humanities, the Boston Humanities Foundation, and American Philosophical Society. He was also a National Humanities Fellow and a University of Cambridge Yip Fellow. His work has been anthologized in multiple entries including the Encyclopedia of Global Archaeology. In July 2014, he delivered the high profile keynote address at the Joint 14th Congress of the Pan-African Archaeological Association of Prehistory and Related Studies and 22nd Biennial Meeting of the Society of Africanist Archaeologists at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, titled "Collapsing Boundaries: A Continental Vision for African Archaeology."

Ogundiran is an author/editor/co-editor of several publications including Archaeology and History in Ilare District, Nigeria (Cambridge Monograph in African Archaeology, 2002), Precolonial Nigeria: Essays in Honor of Toyin Falola (African World Press, 2005), Power and Landscape in Atlantic West Africa (Cambridge University Press, 2012), and Materialities of Ritual in the Black Atlantic (Indiana University Press, 2014) which received a Choice Outstanding award. His articles, reviews, and essays have also appeared in African Archaeological Review, Azania: Archaeological Research in Africa, Journal of African Archaeology, Historical Archaeology, American Historical ReviewJournal of World Prehistory, International Journal of African Historical Studies, International Journal of Cultural Property, Current Anthropology, African Studies Review, English Historical Review, Economic Anthropology, and History in Africa, among others. 

He is a highly-respected scholar among his colleagues. Commenting on his transdisciplinary scholarship, Nancy Gutierrez, dean of UNC Charlotte's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences said: "The impact of Professor Ogundiran's research stems from the themes of human society and behavior that he explores through archaeology, history, and geography. These characteristics make Professor Ogundiran's research truly transcendent, not just across academic disciplines, but also through the entire human experience." Provost Joan Lorden, the provost and chief academic officer at UNC Charlotte also describes Ogundiran as "an internationally recognized scholar whose contributions to the university and to the highly interdisciplinary fields of Africana studies, anthropology, history, and the arts define what it means to be a Chancellor's Professor." Ogundira is currently the editor of African Archaeological Review and was a co-founder of Yoruba Studies Review.

          As an academic administrator, Ogundiran served for twelve consecutive years in the position of a program director and department chair respectively (2006-2018). Under his leadership, the Department of Africana Studies at UNC Charlotte tripled its undergraduate enrollment in the major, added more than 20 new courses to the curriculum, developed an Africana honors program, launched African language courses in Swahili and Yoruba, created a concentration in health and environment within the Africana Studies major, and launched the graduate certificate in Africana Studies. He also created a university and community-linked annual lecture titled Dr. Bertha Maxwell-Roddey Distinguished Lecture, named after the founding chair of the department. He initiated and collaborated with the College of Arts and Architecture to launch the annual Africana Artist-in-Residence program. He also developed a wide range of community partnership projects that promote Africana knowledge systems, history, and culture in the Greater Charlotte area. His community partnership works in Miami and Charlotte have earned him accolades and honors such as a letter of commendation from former Congressman Mel Watt and a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition for Community Service.

Ogundiran enjoys reminding everyone about his Ibadan roots. He is particularly fond of his early childhood in the inner city of Ibadan, in Ojagbo-Aremo-Ode-Aje axis. He recalled his childhood in a recent interview:

It was a cosmopolitan environment, with a diversity of interests – Muslims, Christians, Orisa devotees, etc. Very early on, I realized that the elders around me paid attention to history, stories, things, and places in the way they solved problems, negotiated differences, managed conflicts, and organized towards a common goal. This was the background that shaped my unconscious orientation. Maybe, my interest in the study of history began with immersion into that kind of environment.

It turns out that our natal compound is the same: Ojagbo, at Ibadan. Let me recite, in his praise, the collective city praise poem, as recently modified and rendered by Iya'Badan, to save for another moment of glory, that of our compound where we worship Sango, the god of thunder:


Ibadan mesi ogo, n'ile Oluyole.

Ilu Ogunmola, olodogbo keri loju ogun.

Ilu Ibikunle alagbala jaya-jaya.

Ilu Ajayi, o gbori efon se filafila.

Ilu Latosa, Aare-ona kakanfo.

Ibadan omo ajoro sun.

Omo a je igbin yoo, fi ikarahun fo ri mu.

Ibadan maja-maja bii tojo kin-in-ni, eyi too ja aladuugbo gbogbo logun,

Ibadan ki ba ni s'ore ai mu ni lo s'ogun.

Ibadan Kure!

Ibadan beere ki o too wo o,

Ni bi olè gbe n jare olohun.

B'Ibadan ti n gbonile bee lo n gba ajoji.

Eleyele lomi ti teru-tomo 'Layipo n mu.

Asejire lomi abumu-buwe nile Ibadan.

A ki waye ka maa larun kan lara, ija igboro larun Ibadan.


What about the translation? Let me give the task to Akin, Baba 'Beji, our distinguished and

famous historian and archaeologist. This is his first assignment in this new position!

If his Ibadan upbringing prompted his interest in the study of history and archaeology, then Ogundiran has long expanded his provincial roots from Ibadan across the Atlantic and deposited knowledge in archives around the globe. As he assumes this new title, we can only wish him many decades of outstanding scholarly achievements, community engagements, and global impact. Akin has used his intellect and brilliance to become my senior. I bow to this great man.

USA Africa Dialogue Series - Review

This review may interest some:


Social & Behavioral Sciences

Adler, Jeffrey S. Murder in New Orleans: the creation of Jim Crow policing. Chicago, 2019. 256p index ISBN 9780226643311, $35.00; ISBN 9780226643458 ebook, contact publisher for price.
Murder in New Orleans: The Creation of Jim Crow Policing by Adler (Univ. of Florida) reads like the script for a documentary film. The statistical analysis of a data set of 2,118 murders committed in or around New Orleans between 1920 and 1945 is enlivened with "narrative portions of the Homicide Reports." Employing the methodology of "microhistory," Adler examines the institutionalized discrimination against the poor and direct racism by police officers, the media, and the general population in the context of expanding Jim Crow policing. Newspapers sensationalized some cases while neglecting the more common forms of homicide downplayed in police reports. New Orleans, in turn, experienced growing police brutality against African Americans and disproportionately higher murder convictions among this community. The murder rate rose sharply after World War I and then fell dramatically from the late 1930s onward, despite the Great Depression and the flouting of prohibition by city officials, supposedly because the population became more "mature" and jobless African American women became more dependent, among other alleged reasons. Missing from the explanation is the possible role of young men demobilized after the war but without the benefits of New Deal programs. Summing Up: Recommended. All readership levels. -- B.

Quality Education: Have We Dropped the Ball?

Ayo Olukotun

"To ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all"

United Nations Sustainable Development Goal No4.

"The All Progressive Congress, in government will carry out a thorough review of the education sector, and having established the main causes of the sector's terrible decline, will create elaborate incentives to attract the best and the brightest to teach in our schools"

All Progressive Congress Manifesto 2014

Quality education, which speaks to a threshold of competencies, skills, numeracy, and literacy, acquired through formal education continues to be important in official declarations nationally, and globally. As the opening quotes make clear, Sustainable Development Goal No4, and the manifesto of the All Progressive Congress, emphasize the overriding importance of quality education, with the APC manifesto outlining some strategies by which it can be achieved. Nonetheless, no one can pretend that Nigeria has made meaningful progress in the quest to achieve credibility in its educational standard. If we take tertiary education, with which this columnist is more familiar, we find continuous drop in quality, in the capacity of those who are admitted into the universities and polytechnics, as well as those who obtain their certificates from multiplying universities and polytechnics across the country.

For many years now, employers have been speaking about the deluge of unemployed and unemployable graduates, in search of diminishing jobs. So, the point here is that even if those jobs are available, employers have their doubt about whether this emergent labour force can perform basic tasks, such as writing memos on policy matters, articulating their positions on issues, or having knowledge of events, and personalities which would have been taken for granted some two or three decades back.

In a postgraduate class I taught several years back, I was bemused to find out, that the students could not identify such personalities as Kenneth Kaunda, Julius Nyerere, Kwame Nkrumah. In order to provoke a conversation, I told the class that I knew whom these figures were, and much else as a primary school student, without access to the latest gadgets in computer assisted learning. The students promptly re-joined that I should not forget, that life was much easier in Nigeria in my growing up years, than now that many youths have to scrounge for survival. I am not persuaded that their complain, valid as it may be, exhausted the clutch of depressing issues at stake. The fundamental point, however, is whether schooling at primary and tertiary levels sufficiently enable the students in the wide variety of skills that they need to be economically productive, and to develop sustainable livelihood. It was not long ago, to give an example at the basic levels of education, that the governor of Kaduna state, Mallam El Rufai, discovered that a disconcertingly high proportion of teachers in the employment of the state government, had themselves failed to acquire basic competencies, which would have qualified them to successfully inform and guide their students.

The joke was told recently, concerning a student who came late to school, at the time when the commissioner for education was on an inspection tour. As the student entered the classroom, the commissioner asked, seeking to test his knowledge, "who wrote Things Fall Apart". The student, assuming he was going to be punished, and not knowing the answer to the question, screamed, "I am not the one sir". The joke, however, is on the society that continues to make the motions of training and education, when the output of that bustle does not relate to the flurry of activities, taking place without attention. Considering that the youths now constitute a demographic majority, it is astonishing that quality education, taken for granted in several other climes, including some on the African Continent is much talked about, but little implemented. Conference after conference have been held on the status and quality of education, several of them coming out with proposals and recommendations for reform. Regrettably, however, matters seem to go rom bad to worse.

To be sure, our youths excel in several departments of life, which include, music, sporting activity, stand-up comedy, fashion, tech start-ups, and to an extent in some entrepreneurial activities. They do this however, for the most part, from inbred and innate skills akin to native intelligence without necessarily acquiring much in the way of formal education. It can be argued that formal education would have broadened their horizon, and their capacity for contributing imaginatively to the national forte. In other words, there is a need to revisit reforms that will reintroduce quality education in the national policy agenda, beyond catch phrases and official clichés that continue to becloud the issue. Were such policy initiatives to be undertaken. It will mean a mark up in the current lacklustre budgetary allocation, year-after-year to education. For example, in contrast to the expectation aroused before the 2019 budget was read to the National Assembly, that education will get a commendable share in the budget, it only got 620.5billion naira, which is only a little above 7% of the total budget. This means that, in the last couple of years, the budget for education has hovered between 5% and 7% of annual budgets, failing to break the groove of low budgetary allocation and underfunding, prevalent in the sector. It is unlikely, therefore, at this rate that we will come up with public schools offering credible and respectable educational training that will constitute a solid improvement on what currently obtains.

As the SDG, and other global policy documents reiterate, education is not just another item on the agenda but a cardinal one that holds the key to success in several other policy areas such as scientific and technological development, industrial growth, as well as social services. That is why for example, the phenomenal breakthrough of the Asian Tigers to modernity is crucially related to long term and sustainable Development in the education sector. That is another way of saying that they placed education at the centre of perspective development strategy, that saw them ascending from third world to first world, as the title of a well-known book suggests. This meant that, at every turn, they worked out what impact policies will have on the educational sector.

Understanding that educational growth is critical to overall breakthrough. South Korea, for example, ensured that quality education became the catalyst for technological advancement, even as the education sector itself received new boost from new technologies. The other thing that we can borrow from the educational strategy of that part of the globe is to make the welfare and renumeration of teachers the centre of an upward drive in quality. The APC manifesto, quoted earlier, recognised this, when it spoke of making available 'elaborate incentives to attract the best and the brightest to teach in our schools'. Good policy enunciation, but the question to ask is when will the implementation of the policy begin? Our political elite admit the overriding value of quality education, which is why they send their children abroad to acquire it. All that they need to do, therefore is to ensure that their charity truly begins at home, that is in the national policy universe. The time to begin is now.

USA Africa Dialogue Series - PRESS RELEASE CISLAC decries arrest of News Digest’s journalists



CISLAC decries arrest of News Digest's journalists

In Abuja, 31st of October, 2019: The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) is seriously disturbed by the reported arrest and detention of the Editor of News Digest, Mr. Gidado Yushau Shuaib and the professional webmaster for News Digest, Mr. Adebowale Adekoya over an investigative report published through their medium last year, revealing unchecked and unsanctioned use of Indian Hemp by the workers of Hillcrest Agro-Allied Industry in Ilorin throughout in loading and off-loading processes of grains.  

While we are concerned by the recent but alarming arrest and detention of journalists as expressed in the Amnesty International's report on calling for concern on "Endangered Voices and Attack on Freedom of Expression in Nigeria calls[…]", we observe the deliberately unabated restrictions against Freedom of Expression as guaranteed by the 1999 Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria as a major setback to the nation's democratic core values and respect before the international community.  

We maintain and reiterate our undaunted position for social justice and press freedom, while calling on relevant authorities to secure citizens' rights at all levels.

We recall that Mr. Shuaib, who is also the anchor of Youth Digest, has been in the fore front of training young investigative journalists on accountability in the public sector, as demonstrated in "Campus Investigative Journalists Workshop" where campus students were trained on effective reportage, recently organized by CISLAC in collaboration with Youth Digest. This is in addition to the Campus Journalism Awards, where best performing Campus Journalists were rewarded and encouraged in January 2019.

We are not unaware of the media role in influencing public opinion, shaping political agenda, providing a link between the government and the people, while acting as the government's watchdog in advancing good governance.

We also recall the crucial importance of the media in the promotion of democracy and rule of law; just as media is indispensable for people to be informed and to effectively participate in a democracy.

It is on this premise that CISLAC will continue to support young investigative journalists to pursue various legal means to expose corruption and illegalities in our society, as this forms the basis of good governance, transparency and accountability that CISLAC advocates and upholds.

We appeal to the law enforcement agencies and the Government of Nigeria to restrain from arbitrary arrests of journalists, who expose malpractices and criminal acts. The perpetrators of corruption and other heinous crimes are the true enemies of the state who drag Nigeria into the abyss. Investigative journalists are patriots who should be celebrated, not arrested on fabricated charges and physically abused.

We call for the unconditional release of Mr. Gidado Yushau Shuaib and Mr. Adebowale Adekoya and restrain from military dictatorship-like practices.
