Save Nigeria from its military

As a Nigerian professor more or less in exile because of the present chaos in my country, I was particularly elated by the Monitor's insightful comment on the world turning a blind eye on the most populous and economically viable country in Africa (editorial, ``Mandela, Si, Abacha, No,'' Oct. 6). It is unfortunate that the developed countries cannot see the danger of allowing the Nigerian military to start another round of colonization. I hope people will not forget the need to save Nigeria from its military. Jim Nesin Omatseye, Miami Florida International University
