Abstract:With the unification of the former Trust territory of the Southern Cameroons with the Cameroon Republic in Oct. 1961 it became necessary for the Nigerian Federal Government to look for an alternative site for the Man O'War Training Centre. It has been transplanted to Kurra Falls about 50 miles from Jos, Northern Nigeria. The Centre is a project of the Nigerian Federal Government, designed to inculcate in all participants the spirit of responsible and enlightened citizenship, patterned on the model of 'Outward Bound' courses in Britain. The courses provided are designed to bring men, as well as women, together to spend a period in community living, giving them the opportunity also of working with, and for, men and women from countries and tribes they have learned from childhood to look upon with some reservation and suspicion. They learn in a very practical way that the concept of 'One Nigeria' can become a reality. The Centre aims also at helping to further the cause of Nigerianisation by training responsible men to realise the moral obligations of responsibility.
