Political Sociology essay, question below.

From the point of view of political sociology, the greatest damage inflicted on the political culture of Africa was the division created between state and society by the slave trade (Ekeh).

Do you agree or disagree with Ekehs claim about the slave trade? Your discussion should make reference to one or more African countries of your choice and should seek to establish linkages (or the lack of them) between the history of the slave trade and the current politics of the country (or countries) concerned.
