It is just over six years since the government evicted more than Bushmen from the reserve, although it has always denied any connection between mining and the evictions. The Bushmen won the right to return to their land inside the reserve in a landmark ruling at Botswana’s High Court in , where the judges recognized that the evictions had been ‘unlawful’ and ‘unconstitutional’. But the Botswana government is doing all it can to stop the Bushmen from going home, banning them from using a water borehole to get water inside the reserve, and stopping them from hunting for food. Meanwhile, any mines in the reserve will have to drill multiple boreholes to operate, and will create massive disruption to both the Bushmen and the wildlife.

History of Nigeria

According to Billy J. Dudley, [3] the British colonialists used direct rule for the indigenous ethnic groups on the Jos plateau since they were not under the Fulani emirates where indirect rule was used. It was the discovery of tin by the British that led to the influx of other ethnic groups such as the Hausa , Igbo , Yoruba , thus making Jos a cosmopolitan city.

According to the white paper of the commission of inquiry into the crisis, Ames, a British colonial administrator, said that the original name for Jos was Gwosh which was a village situated at the current site of the city; according to Ames, the Hausa wrongly pronounced Gwosh as Jos and it stuck. To distinguish it from the hill tops, it was called “Jas”, which was mis-pronounced by the British as “Jos”.

It grew rapidly after the British discovered vast tin deposits in the vicinity.

Many soon became involved in politics, often criticizing chiefs for keeping to their traditional ways.

Though there is archaeological evidence that societies have been living in Nigeria for more than twenty-five hundred years, the borders of modern Nigeria were not created until the British consolidated their colonial power over the area in The name Nigeria was suggested by British journalist Flora Shaw in the s. She referred to the area as Nigeria, after the Niger River, which dominates much of the country’s landscape. The word niger is Latin for black.

More than ethnic tribes call present-day Nigeria home. The three largest and most dominant ethnic groups are the Hausa, Yoruba, and Igbo pronounced ee-bo.

Nigeria Table of Contents All evidence suggests the early settlement of Nigeria millennia before the spread of agriculture 3, years ago, and one day it probably will be possible to reconstruct the high points of this early history. Although archaeological research has made great strides in identifying some major developments, comparatively little archaeological work has been undertaken.

Nigeria Table of Contents Throughout Africa societies that had been predominantly rural for most of their history were experiencing a rapid and profound reorientation of their social and economic lives toward cities and urbanism. As ever greater numbers of people moved to a small number of rapidly expanding cities or, as was often the case, a single main city , the fabric of life in both urban and rural areas changed in massive, often unforeseen ways. With the largest and one of the most rapidly growing cities in sub-Saharan Africa, Nigeria has experienced the phenomenon of urbanization as thoroughly as any African nation, but its experience has also been unique–in scale, in pervasiveness, and in historical antecedents.

Modern urbanization in most African countries has been dominated by the growth of a single primate city, the political and commercial center of the nation; its emergence was, more often than not, linked to the shaping of the country during the colonial era. In countries with a coastline, this was often a coastal port, and in Nigeria, Lagos fitted well into this pattern.

As a result, land degradation also occurred in these low density areas.
