MARKIIAM LAGOS (AP) - One year ago Nigeria emerged from the worst civil war in the history of motern Africa. Buildiiys in what was once the secessionist state of Biafra are still pockmarked. Riddled, rusted wrecks of trucks remain scattered by roadsides throughout eastern Nigeria. The relief effort, now being wound down, has been hampered by inefficiencies and corruption. Hunger has been checked in eastern Nigeria, but alarmingly high numbers of cases of hepatitis and tuberculosis have been reported. Yet the most immediate wounds of the 30-month civil war are healing. Emergency sick bays numbered more than 125 soon after the collapse of the Biaf-ran army Jan. 12,1970; today there are fewer than 40, with far fewer patients in each. Six months ago relief workers around Owerri, one of the last towns to fall to federal Nigerian troops, found an average of 15 cases of malnutrition during a three-hour clinic. Today they find two or three. Daily life is still grim in the East-with an estimated 20 per cent of able-bodied men and women unemployed in a population of seven million- but it has been worse. Celebrating their first peaceful Christmas in three years, many citizens of Enugu in the East thronged to local markets for chickens and goats to feast on. The government of the Ibo East Central state paid salaries early and waived a standing 23-psr-cent surcharge on all civil servants' salaries that has been levied to raise revenue. A year after the end of a war that aroused deep-seated "tribal" hatreds, a visitor finds little animosity between the victorious Hausas and Yo-rubas and the defeated Ibos. Traditionally migrants from their densely-settled homeland in the East, Ibos are trickling oack to jobs in Lagos, venturing back Into the Hause-domi-nated N'orth and the Yoruba West. Some Hausas businessmen are investing their own capital in the East, entrusting it to renowned Ibo industrious-ness. L. Colors assorted.
