Who is Chika?

Chika Ezeanya PictureChika Ezeanya-Esiobu is convinced of the ability of Africans to transform Africa. She is of the view that the acknowledgement of the significance of Africa’s indigenous knowledge – in all fields of human endeavor – is key to the continent’s advancement.

At the core of Chika’s research interests is the multidisciplinary exploration of indigenous knowledge, homegrown, and grassroots based approaches to the sustainable advancement of Sub-Saharan Africa. Chika is also interested in education as a tool for Sub-Saharan Africa’s transformation. Chika is currently the Principal Investigator for the International Development Research Center (IDRC) Canada commissioned project on utilizing indigenous technology to create employment for women in rural areas in Rwanda. Among her previous research works include for such organizations as the United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER), United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD), the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) and the World Bank.

A researcher, teacher,  fiction and non-fiction writer, and a public intellectual, Chika holds a Ph.D. in African Development and Policy Studies from Howard University in Washington D.C. and is presently a Senior Lecturer in the University of Rwanda.  Chika’s very first attempt at fiction writing became one of six manuscripts (out of 250 submissions) shortlisted for the Penguin Publishers Award for African Writing. Excerpts of the book can be read at http://www.beforewesetsail.com. Chika’s lifetime passion is to contribute to efforts that would see to the unleashing of the suppressed creative and innovative energies, buried deep in the hearts and minds of all Africans.Chika writes when she is not teaching or presenting at conferences, seminars or workshops in various countries. She has lived and worked in four countries spread across three continents and through her travels has learned to value integrity, dignity and respect for self and others, to be open to knowledge and to smile a lot from her heart.

    Congrats Coz, Until we ‘unleash the suppressed creative and innovative energies’ you will find young africans mostly Nigerians going through the desert and ending up in the Mediterranean unaccounted for, all in their bid to get to Europe where they have been forced to believe that pasture is greener.

    My social Enterprise : http://harambecameroon.org/ seeks to address the problem you underlined : “to unleash the suppressed creative and innovative energies, buried deep in the hearts and minds of all Africans.” That’s why I’m glad I discovered this enriching and inspiring blog. More grease to your elobows, and God bless!

    I share your passion for transforming the continent by lookng inwards and adapting our learning to our stuauitions. Isn’t it paradoxical that this continent of ‘poor’ persons has continued to provide millions for many foreigners who make the initial capital here to invest elsewhere? Our education, in addition to being principle-centred must equip learners with the tools of learning, it must cease to be teacher centred.

    May 9, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Sister Chika, I would like to commend you on your article on the “Euro & CFA.” To add some information to your article, are you aware that France has priority in acquisition of raw materials deemed “strategic” Also, do you know that it has first right of refusal for all government contracts in CFA countries and that the CFA allows France to have permanent military bases in its ex-colonies and they have the “legal” right to intervene in these countries? (see http://saoti.over-blog.com/article-17347736.html). Furthermore, did you realize that the CFA countries (through France’s prodding) were instrumental in thwarting Kwame Nkrumah’s vision of a United Africa? (see the movie “The Making of a Lesser Man” http://esteemtv.com/?home&vid=85).

    My question is what do we as Africans in the Diaspora and the Continent do about this. We at LivinginBlack http://livinginblack.ning.com/ have been advocating for a boycott of French products which a Pan-African organization in the Caribbean endorsed (see http://news.barbadostoday.bb/barticlenew.php?ptitle=Boycott%20France&article=6666). Yet we have gotten little traction when asking the Black-owned media to do investigative journalism in regards to this issue. What would you suggest?

     
    • chikaforafrica

      May 10, 2012 at 4:12 pm

      Thanks, Kwame. What we can do, I guess, is what we are doing; keep talking, keep writing, don’t stop. The emphasis must be on doing the right thing to the best of our ability. The result will surely come. Overtime, I believe a critical mass of critically conscious Africans will arise, several of who will be financially empowered to even float their own private networks. Few years ago, no one knew of Al-Jazeerah, today, it is prefered to CNN in several countries around the world. Doing the right always pays.

Here is an archived shows if you are interested http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/18784545.

        I’m also interested in your book “Before We Set Sail.” I haven’t read it yet, but I have read Diop’s “Pre-Colonial Black Africa.” so it would be illuminating to have some discussion of your book

I loved since the time we met . you are an influential somebody and we are blessed to have you.

    Great Woman! I salute you. You are truly an inspiration to me. I just read your article on Thomas Sankara, and dear me, I have never heard or read about such an “African” icon. Of a truth the youth of today have no role models. They are not even aware of those that should be role models. Over time our definition of role models are corrupt individuals, supposedly ‘living large’. I watched a child on TV being interviewed on what he wants to be in future and he replied, ‘ A Politician’. The question is Why? Because in Nigeria, politicians seem to have the best in life, big cars, so much money, private jets, family lives abroad, medical check-ups done abroad, immunity to corruption and the likes… Tell me, when did ‘A Politician’ become a legit occupation?? It’s so sad… But hey! I’m truly inspired by people like you, and I believe that someday, Africans will rise to transform Africa, a continent we will all be proud of. Keep the flag flying, it shall yet yield more fruits, because it’s yielding already. Happy Birthday Dr. Chika.

    At times I wonder where and how your inspirations are derived, the wisdom, sense and logic in what you write and ideology you put forward. Probably I am just carried away but I rate you as the most intelligent Nigerian woman alive today and I am not kidding. You do not even make noise about your self nor indulge in unnecessary debate and studio show with some commentators and showbiz people, but you drop your aura and personality coolly. I once boasted to my over 50 home boys group that you are arguably the best writer with originality like Late Chinua Achebe with proven records of understanding of contemporary African issues but some disagreed with me without pointing at a better writer. Your parents are indeed lucky to have you. More grease to your elbows.
    Regards,

      Thank you very much, Benson. I am happy that there are too many exceptionally brilliant African women out there. We hope and work towards the day when many more African women will get the opportunity to heal the world with their gifts, skills and brilliance.

    I believe Chika has the mental readiness to help us liberate our minds from the tendencies of error in thinking the solutions for Africa are somewhere out there. But, I am yet to encounter a praxis that she has tried somewhere on the soil of Africa and realised phenomenal transformation. Please Chika, send me evidence on some of those practices that have transformed communities that you have worked with.

      Thanks much, Dominic. Intellectuals and knowledge workers are almost always at the mercy of policy makers in terms of institutionalizing their ideas and bringing them to a fruitful execution. Thinkers who meddle in policy making do often find themselves loosing focus and neither building up their ideas nor excellently executing such. There is a role for advisers in governance, that is, researchers, those who know because they have invested effort and time in trying to seek out the truth and validate same. I do consider myself very much a researcher and very little of an administrator or policy maker. I would be very delighted to work with those gifted with, and passionate about public administration in moving the continent of Africa forward. I appreciate your questions – Chika
