“Most major scholars of civilization except Braudel do not recognize a distinct African civilization. The north of the African continent and its east coast belong to Islamic civilization. Ethiopian constituted a civilization of its own. Elsewhere European imperialism and settlements brought elements of Western civilization…” (S. P. Huntington, 1996, 47).
The problem, however, is not that those civilizations are evil but that the survival of certain forms of their existence means the eternal death of our own cultures. This might be a personal opinion, but a careful examination of Nigerian Catholicism, Protestantism and Islamic religion might prove that Nigeria is not just a perfect breeding ground for these civilization but a modern dumping ground of their artifacts.
