Beginning from the inception of this contraption called Nigeria and through to her independence in 1960, the country was not in any way amalgamated toward the benefit of the citizens of the place or granted independence in the real sense of it. Some people have asked if Nnamdi Azikiwe was born in1904, Awolowo in 1909, Ahmadu Bello in 1910, Tafawa Belewa in 1912, Michael Okpara in 1920, if the answer is ‘yes’, they went ahead to ask who then agreed with who and signed the 1914 amalgamation deal, because according to record, in 1914, Nnamdi Azikiwe was ten years, Awolowo was five years, Ahmadu Bello was four years, Tafawa Balewa, was two years and Michael Okpara was not born.

This then shows that Nigeria was solely amalgamated by Britain for economic gain. The south and north were amalgamated into being Nigeria without agreement or consent of the people and was trusted to the Northern people because of the same selfish reasons like north being less educated which makes it easier for them to be manipulated even after the independence. Their population as at then was falsely inflated and census rigged in their favour, to give them an advantage over the south that is more educated. The British saw the South as a threat. They felt that in no distant time the south would challenge the amalgamation and the hidden objectives for the creation of Nigeria.

Imagine a country that had independence in October 1960 has as many coups as eight or nine and the first was in January 1966, which brought in General Aguiyi Ironsi as the head of state. On July of the same year, there was a counter-coup, which brought in major General Gowon to power. The third coup was in 1975, which ousted Gowon, and brought in Brigadier Murtala Muhammed to power as head of state, another was the 1976 coup, popularly known as “Dimka coup” which brought in Lt General Olusegun Obasanjo as the head of state.

The worst is the 31st December 1983 coup, which truncated the democratically elected government of Alhaji Shehu shagari. Major General Mohammed Buhari, who thereafter became the head of state, led the coup. The then chief of staff, Major General Ibrahim Babangida overthrew Buhari with the coup of 1985. There was also an alleged Vatsa coup of December 1985 and the 1990 coup led by Gideon Orka that failed. In 1994, Abacha overthrew the interim government led by Ernest Shonekan.

Up till now Nigeria still has her presidents from the same set of past generals: In 1989 to 2007, the president of Nigeria was former head of state, retired General Olusegun Obasanjo and was supposed to hand over to another retired military officer, Shehu Yaradua, but due to his death in prison, the Barton was handed over to his younger brother, Umaru Musa Yaradua and he died while on seat and his vice who happened to be a civilian took over and ruled for six years. He was also harried out of office by intimidation and subsequently rigged out in 2015 and another military man in the person of General Mohammed Buhari was rigged into office.

It is a popular saying that “the worst civilian government is better than the best military government”, since 1966 to 2018 it has been military rule or military officer in civilian cloth except for shagari, and Goodluck Jonathan, who were either forced out or intimidated out of office by the military officers. Now tell me how such country can develop or move to greatness with such military men ruling, and with distorted policies. It is certain that the citizens have no hope of anything good coming from Nigeria.
