A PRESS RELEASE BY THE NIGERIAN BAPTIST CONVENTION PRESIDENT, REV DR SUPO AYOKUNLE OVER THE STATE OF THE NATION AND SUNDRY ISSUES ON MARCH 3, 2014 Let me seize this opportunity to congratulate all Nigerians for the Centenary Celebration of the amalgamation of the northern and southern protectorates into the present day Nigeria by the then Governor-General, Lord Lugard in 1914. We are celebrating the fact that we are still together as a nation. We cannot say that all is well but we believe that if we all work together towards making all things well, year after year, the story of the nation would change for better in the name of Jesus. While I charge all Nigerians to be law abiding and be upright in all they do, shunning corruption, I want to urge our leaders to ensure that they commit the resources of the nation into serving the nation not self. Some of the challenges the Government must be prepared to solve are mass unemployment, provision of stable power supply which is key to development, especially, in ...

What is the fuss and hullabaloo about this centenary celebrations? And if I may ask, what are we celebrating? A grand fraud and deception by Lord Lugard and now his latter-day saints who have continued to dehumanize and demonize us in this free for all enterprise called Nigeria. It is really so preposterous that a cache of the devil incarnates called boko haram are foisting all manners of heinous crimes and atrocities on Nigeria and Nigerians and amid all the confusion, the best solution to this canker worm that has eaten deep into our national fabric we can come up with is a misprioritized centenary celebrations. Is it not akin to pouring water down the drain? Can't we utilize such wastages in the building of the second Niger Bridge? Are there no matters of urgent national importance that we can sink this centenary money into, such as the education and power sector? And again, what gains are there to be accrued from such bogus and misplaced celebrations? Onye ulo ya gbaa oku oga ji achu oke? I have also ...
President Jonathan what *** you think u are doing?. How can Gen. Abacha, babaginda, those who kill dele giwa and the rest received award for promoter of Unity why boko haram doesnot deserve award then... Femi kuti said they won't collect the ward until federal govt apologize for murder of his grandmother funmilayo kuti. PROF WOLE SOYINKA SAY IT WON'T ACCEPT THE AWARD WITH SUCH PEOPLE IN THE LIST.. imagine Lord Lugard received ward upon the book he wrote title tropical Africa..
Christie Nonyelum Akumabor .just looking at the list of those given national awards even without the attendant recent massacre shows that their government certainly DOES NOT reflect the feelings, aspirations or mood of the country. Imagine honoring Buhari, IBB, Abacha; known coup plotters, human rights abusers and one a convicted theif alongside Gani, Fela, Prof Olukoye Ransome-Kuti, Prof Ambrose Alli, Achebe and Soyinka. Then including the Queen, Lord Lugard and his then girlfriend on this list whilst names like Awolowo, Zik and Mary Slessor were conspicuously absent. You continually urge Nigerians to support the country/government whilst it is PATENTLY OBVIOUS that Nigerians love their country, otherwise we wouldn't spend so much time and energy discussing it.However most Nigerians have total disregard for our government and it's officials because they offer us nothing, not even security and simply pillage our resources for their own use. Imagine some of the names the younger generation of Nigerians com ...
[Ad] Why Nigeria’ll not break up under Jonathan’s watch—Clark on February 28, 2014 at 2:17 am in Politics Elder statesman and Ijaw Leader, Chief Edwin Kiagbodo Clark was the guest lecturer at the 7th Distinguished Lecture Series of School of Media and Communication, Pan Atlantic University, Victoria Island, Lagos, last Wednesday. He spoke on burning national issues including the raging Boko Haram insurgency, war against graft and comments that Nigeria may disintegrate before 2015 among others. BY IKENNA ASOMBA CHronicling the history of Nigeria dating back to the 1914 amalgamation of the Northern and Southern protectorates, Clark said that propositions that the nation will disintegrate should be totally disregarded, as what is playing out in the country today is only a tussle for political power. He said: “We have been together for the past 100 years. It was in 1914 that Lord Lugard amalgamated the Northern and the Southern protectorates. Don’t ask me why the amalgamation because ...
The International Conference Centre in Abuja was agog with activities as the Centenary Conference had in attendants some diplomats, as well as Heads of Governments of various countries who graced the occassion to celebrate with Nigerians and Nigeria at 100, but as the big question is: Which way forward Nigeria? For the past 100 years, after the almagamation of the Southern and Northern Prolectorates in 1914 by Lord Lugard, which birthed what we now know as Nigeria, there has been issues centred on Ethnic, Tribal and Regional consciousness, morethan the much desired National consciousness. Cases abound of ethnic based high class tribalism, nepotism and favouritism at the detriment of merit in Federal Appointments in this country. Even admissions into most federal institutions have been and are still characterized by sheer tribal and sectional interests other than merit in this country. A statistical enumeration of all staff in all the federal agencies, parastatals and ministries in terms of ethnicity will ...
In your opinion, what do you think of Lord Lugard's assessment now?

Dated.23-02-2014 Fellow Compatriots, The labour of our heroes past as inscribed sonoriously by the admiring tunes of the anthem proved so welcoming as Nigeria celeberates an historical reports with vehement concerns towards the 1914 amalgamation which led to the recognized centenary value. This level of vox populi has laid dramatic consequence as significantly we all must term the adequacies of this sojourners of fate as a conserved interest of Christ. The fredrick lord lugard of the 1914 leadership era as the general governor of the northern and southern proctectorate was a pragmatic and dogged exemplary value as the properties of the unification seating was traced towards an effective recommendation of fiscal federalism, structure and form of government, power sharing and devolution of powers,tax policy, and citizenship ethno-religious friction. Fundamentally, Nigerias' choice of ...
" BRIEF HISTORY OF OKUN PEOPLE ". Okun people are Yoruba descendants in Kogi state. Kogi is a multi ethnic state and Okun people are up to 20% of Kogi State population, smaller than the other two major completely different tribes, Igala and Ebira. Okun people spread across six local government areas in Kogi State, known as Kabba-Bunu, Yagba-West, Yagba-East, Mopa- Muro, Ìjùmú and Lokoja local government Areas. They speak varied dialects…Owé, Ìyàgbà, Ìjùmú, Bùnú and Oworo, but their language is generally called Okun, Okun has become a form of greeting among them. They understand one another to a greater extent and large numbers of them speak Yoruba. Their dialects are influenced by various factors. Such factor is that Kogi state shares boundaries with Kwara, Ondo, Ekiti, Niger, Benue, Nassarawa, Anambra, Enugu, Edo and Abuja. Also, The Nupe wars of the 19th century and interaction with the Hausas due to geographical zoning left an indelible mark on the Okun people and their dialects. Accordin ...
“In character and temperament, the... African... thriftless, excitable person, lacking in self control" Lord Lugard
The way our Nigerian politicians love POWER like there is no tomorrow and lack APPREHENSION, reminds of “Lord Lugard” excerpt on Nigerians and Africans titled “The Dual Mandate!” It is difficult to accept this comment was made many years and yester decades back. But it is so true at reflecting the character of the average Nigerians to be specific and Africans in general. If “Lord Lugard” had actually made this comment many years ago and the sublimed comment's spontaneity is still mint, pristine in tune with present Nigeria's reality? That speaks volume about the role of genetic make-up with respect to character traits! It beats my imaginations and whoops my *** how a man could so be accurately predicted the whole race by a mere mind projection? Rather than employing the usual modality of begrudging and hard-nosed criticisms and consternation, We have got to contact the best geneticists of the world to come to Nigeria and help us re-ordering our genetic-trait make-ups because the current ones a ...
Yaay!! My fatherland is 100. Its the centinery celebration. When Lord lugard amalgamated the northern & southern protectorate. But unfortunately I celebrate with mixed emotions. Why? Most important sectors in the country are in shambles. The masses are suffering. Democracy is a far cry from what we're witnessing. No security. No roads. Violence at its peak. It just goes on & on & on. What I think? All we need is revolution! Mental revolution of course. A thing of the mind. This should start with our youths. Influence their thinking. Meanwhile, God bless Nigeria. 1914-2014
LORD LUGARD - Visionary or Villain?. What do you think of the man who was instrumental in creating Nigeria?
We are living in Lord Lugard's country...& until we sit down & negotiate the terms of our unity, this is not OUR country..

Centenary celebration: Nigerians founded modern Nigeria, not Britain —Unionist …says Nigeria existed before amalgamation The planned centenary celebration of Nigeria’s “nationhood” has continued to elicit mixed reactions from Nigerians and groups. Proponents of the celebration hinge their argument on the 1914 amalgamation of the Southern and Northern Protectorates by the Lord Lugard led-colonial administration in Nigeria, while some of the opponents argue that Nigeria existed before the amalgamation. Still, others insist Nigeria’s nationhood truly began in 1960. Follow the debate. BY VICTOR AHIUMA-YOUNG One of the opponents of the amalgamation centenary celebration being organized by the Federal Government is the General Secretary of the National Union of Textile, Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria, NUTGTWN, and Vice-President of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Comrade Issa Aremu. For the likes of Aremu, who is also Chairman, IndustriALL Global Union, Africa Region, those planning the c .. ...
It is baffling hearing from an elder stateman Mr Ezeife pouring out some unreasonable vitupration that if Mr Jonathan is voted out of power in the year 2015 it will be the end of a component called Nigeria. He was saying that the Niger Delta militants will blow up the oil pipelines. Who is afraid of a break-up of Nigeria when the stake holders were not part of Lord Lugard's concubine who christened it the name Niger

The Igbo/Biafran side of the if writing a Movie synopsis: +English Errors Allowed...think Igbo+. Before 100 years ago, Igbo people were independently united and religiously harmonized with fear of God (Igbo ways) and respect of truth. Not everyone was happy with the then organized Igbo family where nwanne was ready to die for nwanneya. then the Devil struck: As usual, the Devil works through human proxies, he (Lucifer, Satan the Devil) called the then Criminal leaders of England and instructed them to destroy Ala Igbo, Biafra and Umunnemism. England headed to Biafra through their Evil agents, Lord Lugard and others. Their Mission: Conquer the Igbo people who were so independently united thus proving difficult to control like Hausa-Fulani, Yoruba and others. it was and still is almost impossible to conquer the heart of the entire Igbo people as Igbo people do not recognize central government for leadership hence the misconception that Igbo people are disunited and no more umunne.

Without Oba Ovonramwen’s death, Nigeria’s amalgamation may not have been possible – Prince Akenzua of Benin The Enogie of Obazuwa and younger brother to the Oba of Benin, Prince Edun Akenzua, in this interview, gives an insight into the greatness of Oba Ovonramwen and how the centenary celebration coincided with that of Nigeria. Excerpts: Centenary celebration I believe people see it from different points of view. I believe government officials who proposed the celebration of this event are thinking of corporate Nigeria. As a country, we are 100 years old, therefore it is worth celebrating, but when you look at the so-called amalgamation, I don’t think it is anything to celebrate because it wasn’t done in the interest of Nigerians, it was done in the interest of the colonial masters. The British did the amalgamation to give themselves an easy way of administering their new acquisition. During the Berlin conference and, 14 European powers converged and shared out the continent of Africa, the ...

THE NORTH AND THE CONTINUED EXISTENCE OF SOUTH NIGERIA “Federal Nigeria has never since her independence shown the distinctive mark of a united nation. It has been impossible for her to silence tribal rivalries –to achieve that mixture of ethnic /cultural blend required to forge National Unity” ---Francois Duvalier, then President of Haiti, March 22, 1969. The above quotation is a time honoured statement that aptly describes Nigeria since 1947 till date. If it is from the hearts over-flow that the mouth speaks, I invite the reader to listen to the words of “Our hero’s past” whose labours (we sing), shall never be in vain. In 1952, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa addressed the Northern House of Assembly thus “The Southern people who are swamping into this region daily in such large numbers are really intruders; we don’t want them and they are not welcome here in the North. Since 1914, the British Government has been trying to make Nigeria into one country. But the people are different in every w ...

The was a huge achievement that when Lord Lugard and his army attacked the city in 1904,he was amazed by what he saw.
Our morning training session was a bit different today, as the Kogi Confluence Queens f.c team went on endurance trek to the top of the mount party 1,500 feet above sea level here in Lokoja. it was all fun, adventure and a very good fitness test for the players. The players were accompanied by the Technical Director, Coaches, Team Manager, Secretary /Media Officer, Welfare and Curator. Here are some of the pictures taken during the endurance experience, some taken at the old Lord Lugard house.
I see Nigeria at the verge of disintegration to the original Divine plan...the "optimal solution" to the amalgamation blunder made by Lord Lugard in 1914! The Northern and Southern Protectorates are too different in ideologies! Can two walk together except they agree? Amos 3:3. Nigeria is not a nation, but a mere geographical expression...'Obafemi Awolowo 1947'. Let's pray for a peaceful disintegration!

I've seen cases of... Boy falls in love with Girl. They get married. Then, a few weeks/months/years later, Boy falls out of love with Girl. They get a divorce and move on. I've also seen cases of... Papa/Mama posts Girl to Boy. They get married. Few weeks/months/years later, Boy discovers Girl is the best thing that ever happened to him. They choose to stay married and raise a family together. ...because of my observations, I can never make 'Lord Lugard' my excuse for failure. I'll rather work on myself.

"the typical African ... is a happy, thriftless, excitable person, lacking in self control, discipline and foresight, naturally courageous, and naturally courteous and polite, full of personal vanity, with little sense of veracity brief , the virtues and defects of this race-type are those of attractive children."

The British colony and the 1914 amalgamation of Nigeria by Fredrick Lord Lugard was to achieve their own specific desire and not on our own interest so i see nothing to celebrate in this centinary but stock taking.
Lord Lugard has made a grave mistake by Almagamating the Nothern and Southern protectorate together, We are close to reaching the promise land while they are drawing us back to Egypt, who are they?

FOR THOSE WONDERING IF BAUCHI IS PART OF THE MIDDLE BELT. The area south of Bauchi is known as Bauchi Plateau. It mainly comprises Tafawa Balewa LG & Bogoro LG. The inhabitants of these places are called Zar (sayawa by the Hausas) and their land geographically falls within the area called middlebelt. They are culturally and religiously different from the hausa- fulani. They were forcefully incorporated into the Bauchi emirate council during Lord Lugard's time (indirect rule). But they now have their own chiefdom known as d Zar chiefdom. The bauchi state govt however, in the typical hausa-fulani manner of disrespect & hatred 4 religious and ethnic minorities, has refused to acknowledge the seat of the Gungzar in Puji (Tafawa Balewa). The issue at the time of this writing is in court.
Strength For Your Days. Tuesday, 22 January Topic: Nigeria shall Rise Again Read: Eph. 6:18-19 More Lessons: II Chro. 7:13-14 Bible Reading in One Year: Job 21-24 Nigeria is a land of destiny. While the colonial masters, in the era of the scramble for Africa, were busy, especially in West Africa, splitting ancient kingdoms into national boundaries, Lord Lugard, the commander of the Niger area, amalgamated the Southern and Northern Protectorates of the Niger area into what is now Nigeria in 1914. With over 600 languages, Nigeria has remained united geographically from that time. Since her political independence in 1960, the country has witnessed political turmoil, civil war, riots, ethnic and religious violence, bad leadership leading to the plundering of the nation's wealth and subsequently, widespread poverty, and more recently the onslaught of terrorists threatening our corporate existence. That Nigeria has survived all the threats and still stands as a geographical entity shows that the hands of God .. ...
RADIO BIAFRA WRITES PRESIDENT JONATHAN---EASTERN PILOT REPORT In what appears to be a reprieve, the Indigenous People of Biafra as represented by Radio Biafra London has offer the embattled and sometimes confussed President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan a life-line. This is coming as the President, an Easterner himself, is being knocked on all sides by the Northern oligarchy and Yoruba hegemony with all manner of thorns and pit-falls placed on his way aside the threats of bloodshed if he dares to contest the 2015 election. In a letter dated 2nd January, 2014 and signed by the Director of Radio Biafra London, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, the Principle Administrator of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mr. Ikechukwu Enyiagu and the Secretary, Mr. Emmanuel Okafor, the Indigenous People of Biafra reminded President Goodluck Jonathan that the British amalgamation which Lord Lugard himself aptly said; “The North and the South are like oil and water that cannot mix,” has expired.

History has one very great significant, that is no matter the length of time, the root of an issue will be revealed. Lokoja to some was an entity discovered by accident and hence poorly informed people claim to it as their home and earlier settlers. Thank God 2014 has come and well informed people now talk or focus on Lokoja with the ongoing centenary celebration. Also worthy of note is the historical relics of Mount Patti traced to Nupe people as the earlier settlers before the exploration of the River Niger and Benue and the administrative seat of Lord Lugard. The nupe people who for economic reasons are scattered along the coast of the two rivers are now back to their feet.The stolen glory has been restored. The Bassa nges now claim their national identity and known as Nupes of the Nupe Kingdom. The nupes by geographical location spread to Bassa, Lokoja, Ajaokuta LGAs in Kogi State, Bida, Minna, Muye,etc in Niger State and Ajowa, Akunu, Erusu, Ayere in Ondo state and substative areas of Kwara State.

In 1914 Lord Lugard literally joined the Northern and Southern Nigeria, this launched British colonial adventure in this side of Africa. Lord Lugard married a female journalist who gave the name Nigeria. Lord Lugard died in 1945.
Once upon a time Black African women were more emancipate than men. The "riots" or the war, led by women in the provinces of Calabar and Owerri in southeastern Nigeria in November and December of 1929, became known as the "Aba Women's Riots of 1929" in British colonial history, or as the "Women's War" in Igbo history. Thousands of Igbo women organized a massive revolt against the policies imposed by British colonial administrators in southeastern Nigeria, touching off the most serious challenge to British rule in the history of the colony. The "Women's War" took months for the government to suppress and became a historic example of feminist and anti-colonial protest. The roots of the riots evolved from January 1, 1914, when the first Nigerian colonial governor, Lord Lugard, instituted the system of indirect rule in Southern Nigeria. Under this plan British administrators would rule locally through "warrant chiefs," essentially Igbo individuals appointed by the governor. Traditionally Igbo chiefs had b ...

I read that the sales of French car maker PSA Peugeot Citroen have continued to slide, and I asked, Why not? Why would sales not slide when it was the same design of Peugeot 406 which I analysed its advert in BrandFaces in 2002 that is still on sale in 2014, when Corolla and Camry have been changed up to 4 times since then? Who would like to change his car if it is still "current"? Asian car makers are continuously bombarding the market with exotic and exciting models, while Peugeot believes in keeping one design for an age. I also heard that even the guys who sell Peugeot spare parts in Nigeria have been run out of business, because the same part that was made in 1904 during the time of Lord Lugard is still the same design in use today!
LIFE & FREEDOM IN RETARDED AFRICA There are certain things about Africa that make one to wonder in life. One truth is that most of the people in the continent are not "wild" in thinking and reason. They rather live their lives like "wild animal" in retardation. This is because they lack sound mind due to lack of sound education. They are too pretentious because they failed to have their minds brushed. It is obvious in wisdom, and the wise know that the lack of mental brushing is root of backwardness, poverty and perpetual suffering in Africa at large. The killing and brutality we see in Africa imply that majority of the people are barbarious in mind. There is no single difference between them and wild animals in forest. This is because life exists in mind, and most of the minds in Africa are retarded, degenarated and decayed in downhill. That is why they kill one another for nothing just like wild animals do in barbarious animal kingdom or forest. One thing I know is that man is free moral agent. God crea ...

I was watching the Tv Series titled Hostages where a sponsor to the incumbent Democratic party of the USA made a statement. He said that the balance of power never shifts, it has been always where it has been - where the money is. I pondered immensely on this and realised it is true. So, I now applied it to Nigeria and found it, so far, to be true too. Then I remembered how the APC (CAN + CPC) have been recruiting rebel governors. To what means? This is like giving old thugs new guns. As far as APC do not control the money (oil) of this country then their efforts will come to nought, even let them merge with INEC and EFCC. So long as PDP controls the oil of Nigeria it is but a wild goose chase. The sponsors, Chieftains and Patrons of PDP are all oil barons. Talk of Dangote, OBJ (Oando) and others. If APC thinks any other money can measure up to oil money then they've not learned anything. APC, a baby of two constant enemies - Yoruba and Hausa, pretending to unite and then hiring rebels from other parties. ...

2015 : APC may wrest power from PDP – Oyebode January 19, 2014. Professor Akin Oyebode, is an academic giant in every sense of the word . From Christ ’ s School, Ado - Ekiti in 1960 to Harvard Law School in 1974 , Osgoode Hall Law School in 1981 and Nigerian Law School in 1990 , the Law professor is no doubt an authority in the legal field . In this interview with Senior Correspondent , ISHAYA IBRAHIM, Oyebode examines a number of issues in the polity , including the legal implication of Nigeria’ s amalgamation in 1914 , and concluded that 2015 elections will be exciting . Excerpts … Prof . Akin Oyebode In Nigeria’ s 100 years , what , in your view , is the greatest threat to its existence ? The question of centenary, for me , is like a storm in a teacup because it is ridiculous that we are making heavy weather of the amalgamation of Nigeria by British colonialism . I don’ t know of instances where slaves celebrate their enslavement . The various ethnic groups , nationalities that existed prio ...
Here in this white bread, with a burning lamp and an overflowing pool of thoughts, I put ink on paper. Though it is not much compared to that at Woolwich, I like the shelter here. In the mornings, the window at the back of the house presents the young bronze sun with a thousand birds streaking beneath, appearing like moving black dots on the crystal sky. The evenings are not any less artistic. These times from the sitting room window, I will watch the dashing aged sun melt into the distant horizon where the earth keeps a date with it, beautiful and sweet, like an orange sliced in two, and then of course the noisy birds would prance through again, appearing this time like a painting. I mustn’t fail to tell you of Bundu- A fourteen year old lad from the eastern tribe, he has been my house help and tour guide. This boy, with skin of ebony and deep darting eyes picks up the English language in a day faster than I could do French in a year. He is like a cat, highly intelligent, humble and introverted. The ot ...
54 or 100 years of Nigeria: Golden jubilee or centenary?? I am confused. At my adolescent age I often took to join in march-pass during the 1st October to celebrate 1960 political independence. From that date to today is 54 years. During the last 4years 1 October we celebrated Golden jubilee. Prayers were offered hoping that Nigerian will celebrate Centenary when we have 100th first October. But today we change the tune to celebrate 100 of Nigeria called centenary. The idea is Nigeria got amalgamated in 1914 therefore we are 100 as a nation. Here laid my. Confusion. Is it the infamous 1914 lord lugard amalgamation we want to celebrate or the 1st October 1960 lowering of the Union Jack political independence? All countries in Africa celebrated the colonial political independence not scrambling and partitioning that merged them as colonial outpost or effective colonial entities. USA was British colony in the 18th century but they never celebrate it..rather they celebrate their Union day that make the into . ...

THIRTY YEARS ON THE THRONE. By Dan Galadiman Ningi. Gombe Emirate was founded by the Fulani Jihad of 1804. The expedition that established the Emirate was led by Modibo Bubayero who was one of the flag bearers of Shehu Usman Danfodio during the Jihad. Modibo Bubayero was a descendant of Fulbe Walorbe that came from Mali on their way to Mecca to perform Hajj, which is one of the pillars of Islam. That group of Fulbe Walorba was under the leadership of famous Fulani leader Salihu Jahollo, who was nicknamed Alfa Salihu Laro. Mallam Bubayero received his first Qur’anic education from his father Ardo Usman. After the death of his father, Bubayero travelled to Kukawa in Borno where he acquired more Qur’anic education and lessons in Islamic theology and jurisprudence. In 1810, he travelled to Degel to meet the famous Shehu Usman Danfodio. On his way to Degel he made a brief stop at Katsina where the Emir of Katsina gave him Zulaihatu, his daughter, in marriage. The couple was blessed with Suleiman, the first ...
Lord Lugard am not sure you did well with this amalgamation stuff
NIGERIA HAS EXPIRED! ...Now an illegal country ---EASTERN PILOT REPORT Nigeria's amalgamation and Nigeria as a Union expired at about 12 midnight on the 31st of December, 2013 and took effect from 1st of January, 2014. The Amalgamation Treaty of 1914 which merged the Northern & Southern Protectorates into what is now NIGERIA, was indeed an International Treaty similar in some respects to the one signed between the British Government and China regarding Hong Kong... the latter treaty was valid for 100 years which saw Britain formerly handover Hong Kong to China in 1997. Nigeria's Amalgamation Treaty also has a 100 year validity period, and expired on January 1st, 2014. A peep into the hidden document of the 1914 Amalgamation shows startling revelations that make Nigeria's existence beyond January 1st, 2014 illegal. The Amalgamation of Southern and Northern Nigeria by the British through the instrumentality of Lord Lugard, was to be experimented for 100 YEARS to ascertain its workability or otherwise, accor ...

The name "Nigeria" as a country has expired (after 100years of Amalgamation according to Lord Lugard). Is either we continue to be one Nigeria or we divide this country into how many nation we want it.from 1914 to 2014
RETURNING TO PRE-1966 CONSTITUTION; PANACEA FOR PEACE IN NIGERIA-PART 1 January 15, 2014 at 3:15am By Segun Badmus Midrand, South Africa Today 15th January is a day commemorated as the Armed Forces Remembrance Day in Nigeria. It was the day the military suspended our independence constitution in 1966 and the day the Biafra secessionists surrendered in 1970 while January is a significant month because Southern and Northern Protectorates and Nigeria were all formed. It is supposedly not a date or month to remember or celebrate; baring the events that occurred rather it is a period for sober reflections and reminiscing that should be rechristened Reconciliation or Reunion day or month if we are to move forward as a nation. The following excerpts from Richard Akinjide's paper titled The Amalgamation Of Nigeria Was A Fraud reveals the underlying problems facing Nigeria. Where he wrote that "Nigeria is a very complex country. Our problems did not start yesterday. It started about 1884. Lord Lugard came here abo ...
STUMBLING INTO THE NEXT 100 YEAR Written by Mahmud Jega Official celebration of Nigeria at 100 will start in February, President Goodluck Jonathan said last week. Why? Lord Lugard carried out the Amalgamation with effect from January 1, 1914. Was the Federal Government too busy replying some letters that it forgot about the date? If your birthday falls on a certain date, will you tell your friends that you have decided to hold the party next month? Given the Nigerian Government’s penchant for celebration, it announced soon after we concluded the 50th Independence anniversary celebrations in October 2010 that we will be marking Amalgamation in 2014. Several of our newspapers took a cue from that and came up with special packages to mark the day but government itself came up with nothing. Why are newsrooms more efficient than State House even though they have far less money? We do not as yet know what the official celebration of Amalgamation day will entail. I suspect that there will be many long speeches ...

Northern and southern protectorate amalgamated last 100 years by then Gov. Gen. Sir Lord Lugard.
There was a time when the north was the most literate part of Nigeria. According to lord Lugard, there were 25000 Qur'anic schools with about 25000 pupils in the north.
Which way Nigeria ! You are now 100 After amalgamation by lord lugard but stil a baby what a pity! our leaders hv all embraced the loosing spirit instead of the winning spirit. Present interest instead of future interest. God help u Nigeria.
Lord Lugard need to be Cursed This is 100years of Nigeria and still yet filled with shame, disgrace, corruption and poverty. For the Amalgamation of Nigeria, Lord Lugard will never rest in peace cause right from the beginning the aim of british on Nigeria started out of selfishness and greed not love for humanity. Today I read about news of 2500 teenagers who were rescue from baby factories... All these re subject to the great evil done by British and Lord Lugard to this country.. In all, just as I am cursing Lord Lugard so also history and posterity will either pray or curse our Past and present leaders right from Nnadi Azikwe to the Goodluck Jonathan of Today... Now is the time to decide whether or Not to remain a Nigeria.
NIGERIA AT 100- Time To Think-According to some historian,the amalgamation of Southern&Northern protectorate was instituted by Lord Lugard,the naming was by his wife.But the case of study today is the aim&objective.What can make the British combine two unrelated region to one?what did they expect?is there any historical backing 4dis step.Although d decision has been taken 4almost a century now but came to discussion now bcuz d citizen of dis con3 found it uneasy to live together.There is no cordial relationship among its diverse ethnic groups.But d intention of d British is to rule 4ever even without their presence and d result is d activities of d expatriates in our con3 till today.It's now left to d citizen of d country to gather themselves and discuss d way forward.Our governors should stop looking 4investors abroad and start educating there youth and empower them after their service year.And this has to be among their discussion in d forthcoming CONFAB.LONGLIVE FED REP OF NIG.

WHY JONATHAN IS NIGERIA'S BEST PRESIDENT SO FAR (1) With Lord Lugard, it was impunity. (2) With Gowon, it was genocide (3) With Obasanjo, it was total annihilation (4) With Buhari, it was expansion for prisons (5) With Babangida, it was plane crash and letter bombs (5) With Abacha, it was quiet or die (6) With Obasanjo again, if it is not me, na who god go bless (7) with Yaradua, it was if you say im sick, lets fight at the boxing ring So far with Jonathan, Buhari is free to incite post election violence, Obasanjo is free to heep any mountain of false allegation, Atiku is free to point a warning finger at the President of the nation, boko haram can attack and kill soldiers and the soldiers are take to the civil court for retaliating, a central bank governor is free to use the peoples fund to sponsor terrorism, even an ordinary State Governor is free to challenge the Country's President. An example of DEMOCRACY
Lord lugard is d cause of our problem by joining three countries 2gether called amalgamation. Today no peace in naija at d age of 100. Wow
"Your president visited our country with seven private jets and that’s never happened before. We were all excited. This is Nigeria. It’s the country with the largest private jets. Seven private jets only. I know there must be more but for us still that was wow. Everybody came in their own jets” Please, someone should tell that Kenyan woman in that video on Youtube that like Lord Lugard described, our president loves the display of power without responsibilities. I am surprised the trio of Abati, Okupe and Gulak haven't bared their fangs on these people. You see? When we talk, they say we ridicule our president. I guess it's okay when other Africans make jest of us because of his actions.
GANDHI PROFESSEER When Mahatma Gandhi, the internationaly acclaimed India philosopher who lived between 1869 to 1948 said "it is the reformer who is anxious for the reform ,and not the society from which he should expect nothing better than opposition. Abhorren and mortal persecution." He must have had an idea of days like these in Nigeria history of our Nation, Nigeria today. The evolve of Nigeria state date back to the 18th century berlin conference ,early 19th century Almagamation and the eventual naming of Nigeria by Lord Lugard girl friend Flora Shaw.

MY OWN OPEN LETTER Happy Centenary to my dear country NIGERIA. please consider this an open letter to my GEJ, OBJ and my fellow Nigerians. To GEJ: For the first time I went to vote for you because I hoped that someone from a minority like GEJ can cause a rapid change. Yes, I personally do appreciate the few changes made thus far. my major concern is simple, why give a rat as security to protect fish. A country where the very wrong people occupy the right position based on God fatherism and influnce. A country where corruption is totally ignored and as a matter of fact exalted. where being lily livered is considered diplomacy to tackle insecurity. where people boast of making the country ungovernable by using Boko Haram to kill Christians and they still sit in our National House of Assembly and others govern other states. A country where recurrent expenditure take over 70% of the budget and the remaining capital expenditure is embezzled. The last time I checked you Mr GEJ did not have shoes to go to school ...

NIGERIA - 100 YEARS TODAY: In 1851, Britain had seized the port of Lagos. In 1861, Lagos became a British Colony. In 1886, the Royal Niger Company, [RNC] was given a charter by the British Government to maintain law and order in territories where the British had commercial interests. By the end of the 19th century, the Fulani Emirates of Northern Nigeria had been subdued by the forces of Lord Lugard. In 1900, the British Government made the region the Protectorate of Northern Nigeria with Lord Lugard as its colonial governor. In 1906, the whole of Southern Nigeria, including Lagos, became the Colony and Protectorate of Southern Nigeria. In 1914, British merged the northern and Southern Nigeria into a single unit named the Colony and Protectorate of Nigeria... Towards A Better Nigeria by Mike Okoye
IS JONATHAN NIGERIA'S LAST PRESIDENT? by Bayo Olupohunda The 53 post-independence years of Nigeria's political history have witnessed a few catastrophic events that have threatened her very existence as a nation. But this country colonised by the British and forced together by Lord Lugard in his 1914 amalgamation which brought together two strange bedfellows under a marriage of convenience has always teetered on the edge of the precipice. Since the decade after independence in 1960 and many years after, the country has not had a moment of respite from elements in the union who have constantly threatened separation with devastating consequences. Since independence, Nigeria's stormy socio-political history has shown that perhaps it was a bad idea to have brought together disparate ethnic behemoths that have nothing in common. Little wonder that shortly after the British left, cracks that revealed the mistake of 1914 began to emerge. Even the action and utterances of political players from both sides of the ...
Our country Nigeria has made a centuray since it's almagamation in 1914 by Lord Lugard. Her fundamental problem it's still corruption., we have enough for our GREED but not enough for our NEED. GOD SAVES NIGERIA!!!

NIGERIA is now 100 years old. Since when the fredrick sir dr, lord lugard proclaim the amalgamatio of the southern and northern protectory. And united them into one single unit, to form a one single nation in 1914.
To whom it may concern: AMALGAMATION OF 1914: Was it a mistake? Often, in a moment of despair, I would like to forget some salient factors in the history of Nigeria. Many times, the situation of the `Nigeria Question` would be so overwhelming in my mind that I would forget that I am a Nigerian and would want to leave the country for a while. A times, I would not want to be reminded of what would happen in 2015 as prophesied by some political pundits in the USA or their oracle consultants in Nigeria. It is all well that the defeated presidential candidate in the last election, General Mohammadu Buhari has warned the country of the possibility of a political revolution if things remain (electoral processes) unchanged. The fervent hope is for the rain of a social revolution to fall and not the torrents of a bloody revolution. As it is often remarked, Nigeria is a very lucky country among those politically contrived nations of the world in the 20th century, and perhaps, would still remain politically stab ...

Sir Fedrick Lord Lugard almagamated the Southern and Northern protectorate in Jan 2 1914, and this was done, in the favour of the country. Lets give it up to the first Governor General and the man brought the initiation of Nigerian Council. Happy Anniversary. Hurray!!!
As Nigeria celebrates her centinary year this January 2014,I think this ALMALGAMATION of Southern and Northern Nigeria in 1st January 1914 by Lord Lugard is a great mistake in the political vandal which is the bane of today's Nigeria crisis and problems. Can it be ratified?.

NIGERIA! Are u a vampire? From 1965 to 1970,and up till date,you Nigeria have sucked more than 4million head count blood just to keep u united,yet you are demanding for more. If I am right,then satan is involved,how? John 10v10.. But Jesus has shed His blood so that our blood will be spared. He died that we will live. So why should satan use dis name Nigeria to collect blood for sacrifice and to fulfil his three-fold ministry( to steal,to kill and to destroy)No! IT'S TIME! get ur International passport, let's settle dis hatred once and for. all. Imagine,countries like:Chad, Niger Republic,Ghana,Libya, even Saudi Arabia don't kill nigerians,but unfortunately,nigerians hate and kill fellow nigerians with impunity. Co-existence as worshippers,tribes, states and regions has always failed us since 1914. The best option is international diplomacy,official agreements,MoU,just only on international levels. Enough of this pretence. Water and Oil cannot mix. Was it not God that told Abraham to send Ishmeal and ...

FOLASOPHICAL!!! This is an excerpt of my article to be published this coming Friday in PUNCH NEWSPAPERS. It is titled: “IS NIGERIA A TRUE FUSION OR CONNED FUSION”? If a nation has patiently sought and pursued peace and progress that have been largely elusive and unattainable due to discord, dissonance and dissension among its people for over a century, a deep reflection and introspection then not only become necessary, but expedient to peremptorily resolve of all that has brought a bedlam on that nation and its disparate people. 1914 was the year when the northern and southern protectorates of the Nigerian arrangement were amalgamated by the then Governor-General, British Lord Lugard. Over the last 100 years of the tumultuous relationship, the fusion now appears to have metamorphosed into a grand, exacerbated excrescence as many of us continue to comb and flip through pages of history books in an attempt to find a justification for why Lord Lugard lorded over us a load so unbearable. It is now a know ...
1914-1960: Challenges of Amalgamation Historical Review (1914-2014)100 years of Amalgamation. The amalgamation of Nigeria was introduced by the newly appointed and first British Governor –General of colonial Nigeria Lord Lugard in January 1, 1914. It was the first time the British colonial administration tried to bring the culturally diverse people of Nigeria together under one central colonial administration. Without amalgamation Nigeria would not have developed or emerged as one country. Instead we would have now two or possibly three countries. The amalgamation of Nigeria was not a historical accident but a direct product of British imperialism in West Africa.
Can one justifiablly say that, 'the amalgamation of the Norther & Southern protectorate by Lord Lugard in 1914 was a mistake?' After 100yrs of nationhood, what is ur appraisal of d country? Does it call 4 a centiniel celebration? Am confused.

The Northern and Southern Protectorates were amalgamated on Jan 1st, 1914 at Zungeru, Niger State. Here, many Nigerians of different ethnic groups were called upon to give the country a name. While some called it Muazu, others called it Dele. In order to remove sentiment and tribalism, the wife of Lord Lugard gave the country the name "Nigeria"; i.e., 'the area around the River Niger'. The country, Nigeria, is therefore 100 yrs tdy. But the question is, will we still continue to operate as one country bcs the various treaties leading to amalgamation were consolidated so as to be recognised in international law. Under international law, every treaty has a life span of 100 years. The Amalgamation Treaty took effect on January 1, 1914, which means that it will expire on December 31, 2013 at 11:59pm, signifying, Nigerians can decide to go their separate ways, with each person forming his or her own country and belonging where he or she likes?
2014 here we are, let' s join hand together and make Nigeria a better place to live. eschew spreading rumours with unfounded sources. from the giant of Africa to the giant of the world. avoid currupt practices in our offices, streets, highways, airports, seaports, and boundries as this can promote criminal activities among our societies.also, help security personals with relevant information about individuals with questionble character so as to help track down the security challenges in the country.Remember, we don' t have another country than Nigeria.Even some of us who left the country for greener posture have either deported, arrestested and turture, jailed as illegal immigrants.some are currently seeking refuge in C.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO U NIGERIA. I felicitate with all Nigerians as our country turned 100 years today. It could be recalled that Sir Lord Lugard, the then governor general, amalgamated the two saperate northen and southern protectorates into what we today know as Nigeria. This is no mean feat, despite the turbulance the country has gone through. Lets continue to be one country.
I'm tired of hearing jargon. If GEJ actually signed any agreement to serve for one term, the aggrieved people should show it to the public. It's better than taking a swipe at GEJ government's policies. OBJ registered his own grievance by publishing 18 page letter. Nyako, Muazu and their ilk should bring the so called signed agreement to public glare rather than engaging in bedroom talk. Nonsense, who cares. I will not blame them much, my blame goes to Lord Lugard for his amalgamation initiative. HAPPY new year Nigeria

Lord Lugard described Judges of Northern Nigeria in 1900 as; " The courts were served by judges erudite in moslem law and fearless in its impartial application"
Here Wishes You All a Nw Back to the Matter of the Day; They Said Lord Lugard was The one that Sowed The Seed of In Nigeria,That He Was The Robot that# Ochestrated Ethnic Sentimentality We are Facing in Nigeria Today,That He Was the Root Cause of Our Feud and So He should be Blamed for Our Centenary That is Not Worth Celebrating.But Are We to Put the Whole Blame On Lugard? Truly,Did The Amalgamation For Selfish British Economic Interest and That was 100 years ago,Aint We Old enough to Get over Living with we Old Enough to avoid Misplacement of Priority,Bad Leadership,Largo of Failure in the System and Corruption? I have Agreed that sowed Seed of Discord but Are we Not Old Enough to work in Unity And Uproot it? We are Loosing The Future Because We Dont Love Ourselves and so We thought going our Seperate Ways is the Right Solution to Our Problem.also thought as much But Not Nothing Comes out of their Seceding other than Bloodshed.Dont We have Some things to Learn from this Having Lived for 100yrs,We Have .. ...
As Nigeria, it will be impossible for us to share a common goal with different religion background:the muslims are striving to remain in power while the christian do same. I can't see a country where there is two different religious believe yet still one of the two has been registered eg if you check your dollar note u'll see something like "in God we trust" bt not so here.secondly,in civil service since the amalgamation of southern and northern protectorate in 1914 ,there has been a different form of operation of d civil service where northernization were widely practise instead of national interest. If Nigeria will dividey,I pray that God will make it very peacefull instead of war because I see the amalgamation as a means by Sir Lord Lugard to ease stress in administration as at then.
Nigeria won't break up ! This wonderful year 2014 will come and go with good events that will shape the dreaded 2015. Prophecies, predictions, boko haram crises and disintegration as a result of a failed state can be averted through unity of purpose. "Though tribe and tongue may differ in brotherhood we stand". There is no country in West Africa that can accomodate the African giant in the term of refugee problem. Mischief makers should bury their hatchet and let's see how far dialogue can go. The National conference is a right step in the right direction coming at a time when Lord Lugard made an earth moving pronouncement that "after one hundred years of co-existence; any member of the federating unit wishing to leave can disengage"1914--2014. There is room for roundtable talk, may be after this conference another one will emerge to tackled the issue once and for all. There will be no real need for a civil war. Biafran war was fought because the East wanted to secede but look at Nigeria of today you can ...
Nigeria is 100 years today!!! D amalgamation treaty was signed by Sir Lord Lugard, in Ikot Abasi L.G.A of Akwa Ibom State in 1914!

Nigeria belongs to all of us! so think, plan well, talk good and also pray for our great Country, Nigeria. Let the work of our Heroes past not be in vain!!! God bless Nigeria!!!

Niger-area the compound words that form Nigeria given by lord lugard girl friend which later became his wife, and today mark the memorial century of an adult woman who is still learning how to walk in her old age. I pity my country Nigeria.
Flora Show was the first person that gave Nigeria a name in 1906, that's before amalgation, she named her Niger-Area. Later, after Amalgamation Sir, Lord Lugard Change the name to Nigeria. We thanks Allah today Nigeria is 100 and being call Nigeria. Thus, Nigeria Shall InshaAllah remain One indivisiable and indissoluble sovereign Nation, Under God dedicated to the Promotion of World Peace and International Co-operation...
Nigeria was founded in the year 1898 by Flora Shaw,wife of sir lord lugard The northe and southern protectorates were later amalgamated by lord lugard in the year 1914,am here is wishing u peace and prosperity throughout the new year 2014 inadvance by ismaeel ibraheem aliyu maska,

Hurray Nigeria as a country was named by wife of Lord Lugard in 1914 dt was whn Nigeria was Amalgamated Northern nd southrn protorate to form her entity. Today, 2day Nigeria is 100 year old cogratulation Nigerias
This day, 100 yrs ago, there was a marriage. The perfect marriage was officiated by lord lugard and christened by Flora Shaw during the heat of passion of their romantic outpouring towards one another. LESSON LEARNT: Ne'er make any decision during your tickling exploration of d limits of romance. It holds no gud. It cld lead 2 a 100 yr misadventure.
This year reminds me of 1914 when Lord Lugard and I been dey drink beer for mama nkechi wine bar...
A look into the affairs of Nigeria today and you will notice that the igbos and south south have taken over everything. You think i am lieing? Then lets look into major (i said major) high profile, mouth watery appointments today. Minister of finance- south south (Igbo) Minister of Niger/delta- south south Minister of power- Igbo Minister of works- south south Minster of petroleum-south south Minister of aviation-Igbo Minster of labour-Igbo Secretary to the FG-Igbo Chief of army staff-Igbo and so on. Yet all we hear is corruption, embesslement and missing funds daily. Lord Lugard wrote in his memo that yorubas are good administrators, he wasnt joking. It is high time Jonathan looks beyond his nose for progress Okun yorubas that have a wide range of technocrats who have served past administration effectively cant even get a post even just a mediocre position what a life...
Naija is 100yrs which is supposed to disintegrate but d almalgametion was by mere use of ward by flowra show d girl frn of Lord Lugard who leta become his wife n not by treaty or law. Naija hold ur breath
1914-2014 is 100yrs after amalgamation by lord lugard in 1914. The issue is not 100years but no steady power supply in Naija. Our leaders! What is d problem? Today is 1/1/2014. It is generator again. Thank God we have provision in the 2014 Budget 4 diessel to power generator in aso rock. They kept promising electricity in d country year by year and the purchase of diessel kept increasing yearly. Who is fooling who?
Today Nigeria mark her 100th year since her creation, in 1st january 1914, Lord Lugard brought the South and North together and cald it Niger-Area ''Nigeria''.
Nigeria was found 100yrs ago by Lord Lugard & co. So Nigeria is hundred now. Welcome to two and fortified. You are fortified throughout this 2014. Happy new year.
I am Nigerian. My ancestral roots are traced to Urhobo-Land, Ibo-Land, and Kalabari Land. I had no choice in being Nigerian; at least, no apparent choice. Same way I had no choice in being born by parents who had the aforementioned ancestry. If I can accept my ethnic roots, why can't I accept my Nigerianness?! It is up to us to make it work. Believing that things would be better-off if your countrymen are only those with ethnic and religious homogeneity, is absolute balderdash and a grand delusion. Doubt me? Ask Cain and Abel! It is mischievous for anyone to remind me that Lord Lugard intended for Nigeria to be a hundred years experiment. That's more likely a smokescreen for some to mask their bigotry and intolerance for diversity. Even if Lord Lugard wanted that, what do you want? In reality, the ethnic champions have never had the interests of their chance ethnicity and religion, at heart. They've only pursued their selfish, nearsighted, and crude interests. Fact is, humanity is one; and Nigeria is a mu ...

On this day 100 years ago, lord Lugard created an artificial entity called Nigeria, I was expecting to hear we've been divided because an undated amalgamation is valid for only 100 years..
This marriage is not blissful! LORD LUGARD forcefully brought us together!

Okay. So the agreement to be Nigeria signed by Lord Lugard was for 100 years, so Nigeria died yesternight. No?
The Unity of Nigeria is dated back to 1st of january 1914, wen the Northern and Southern Protectorate were amalgamated by Sir Lord Lugard, making it ONE NIGERIA! Hapy 100yrs of being together.
January 1st 2014, the country marks 100 years anniversary of its artificial creation in response to the administrative and economic reality of the British colonial administration at the time. This creation in 1914 is called Nigeria, and its philosopher- king was named Lord Lugard. His country of dream today is among the very few country in the commonwealth that is still in search true federalism and nationhood after 10 decades of its existence. Many years later, this wonderful and beautiful country would become the subject of endless ridicule at national and international media on corruption, terrorism, kidnapping, inept leadership, religious and political intolerance, bad governance, and most recently open letters on the state of affairs! Indeed some of these issues would have been unimaginable in Lugard’s day! Today’s Nigeria would be unrecognizable to Lord Lugard if he was alive today for many obvious reasons. One is the negative manifestation of the divide and rule politics he bequeathed to us and ...
I,on behalf of my family and the good people of Ikembara Autonomous community Ikeduru,wish to congratulate the President Grand Commander Federal Republic Of Nigeria Dr.Ebele Azikiwe Goodluck Jonathan,his entire executive cabineta nd Nigerians at large on the celebration of the 100 years existence of the soverign entity Nigeria. We keep in our blessed memory Sir Fedrick Lord Lugard who made this possible 100years ago on the 1st of January 1914. We wish to remind him that we are solidly behind him as he carries out his transformation agenda. We need not stress the fact that his transformation agenda has brought out the best and will continue to bring out the best out of Nigerians. We encourage him not to relent on his efforts to make Nigeria one of the world leading economy in the near future. We say thank you for what you have done so far and remind you that the reward of hard work is more work as we will show at the polls in the near future. Long live His Excellency, Long live the Federal Republic of Nige ...
We remember late mrs Flora Shaw d wife of sir lord lugard,4 d 1914 amalgamation of my great nation, Nigeria.
Almalgamation or unatural marriage of lagos colony,the Southern and Northern protectorates has ended yesday by 12pm,Nigeria has expired,Lord Lugard on may 15th,1914,during d almagation ceremony said Nigeria will cease to exist after 100yrs,they will now come together,have a meeting to decide their future,which decides if they would want to continue together as Nigeria or become split,what's your take on this my lovely umunne? Should 9ja slplit or stay together? Wishing u all happy new year!!
Nigeria @ 100, happy centenary. Exactly 1 century ago the seperate protectorate of Southern Nigeria and protectorate of Northern Nigeria came together willingly, as one single and united political entity. From then it, became known as NIGERIA. That was the amalgamation of the 1/1/1914 by the first Governor General Sir Fredrick Lord Lugard. His wife lady flora show named the country Nigeria. Wishing you a momentous and prosperous Nigeria ahead.
Happy 1 Century for Nigeria [[NIGERIA]] Happy 100 year for Nigeria! [[NIGERIA]] 1914 to 2014 i'm wish our grand and great grand children to witness another century! Lord Lugard
Africa: tribalism lives, for better and for worse .Jonathan Power If the northern Muslim states were not part of secular Nigeria, life under the emirs would be even less receptive to the necessity for education and health services than it already is There was a time, not that long ago, when African leaders insisted that it was politically incorrect to discuss tribalism. Tribalism was the face of old Africa that the modernisers, inheriting their domains from the departing colonialists, refused to accept. Today’s African leaders have learned to be not so glib. Southern Sudan is the latest turn of the screw that started with Katanga and Biafra and went on to Angola, Rwanda and Burundi with passing stops in Zimbabwe, Uganda and Senegal. One hundred years of colonialism (less in many countries) and the subsequent creation of four dozen new states, each insisting on the sanctity of colonial boundaries as a sensible way of avoiding future conflicts, could not blot out over 1,000 tribal boundaries. On Africa’ ...
There ws no Nigeria until 1914 when the Amalgamation took place via Sir Lord Lugard initiative. So this 2014 makes Nigeria 100 years. . Therefore it worths celebrateing.
,TODAY IN THE HISTORY, on 1st january 1914, SIR. lord lugard, and his crew amalgamated northern and southern protectoriates and called it "NIGERIA". Lord lugard became the first governor genaral of the new nigeria. This amalgamation is today percived as one of the most grevious mistake made by the famous british empire. Nigeria is a centurion today, 100 years in existence as a nation, 53 years an independent state and 50 years a republic. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALL NIGERIANS!
Exactly 100 years ago when Lord Lugard & his woman (Flora Shaw) after taking their original gin & having a nice time on bed, at lugard's house in lokoja. Decided to bring d people of d southern & Northern Nigeria as one,not considering their religion believe & ethnicity. Just for d sake of making d area easy for them to rule & explore our resources in d name of Amalgamation. What effect did the Amalgamation brought?
As you celebrate, did you also remember that today is NIGERIA's birthday? Nigeria was amalgamated in January 1st 1914 under the ruling of Sir Lord Lugard. The Northern and Southern Protectorate was merge as what we have as NIGERIA today. Happy birthday Nigeria. 1914-2014 = 100years. CENTURY. Pls pray NIGERIA its ours no matter what.

A village where elders travel millions of miles for health check up whereas common villagers die in their poor equiped hospitals. A village where d elders look so much fresh but d villagers look unkempt&tartered. A village where they light xmas tree on d 11th of Dec. wit millions of dollars,meanwile, the villagers are yet to b paid their salary. A village in d western part of Africa. A village almagamated by Lord Lugard. God weeps for this village. A village called Nigeria. .Ajiboye.

MY LETTER TO NELSON MANDELA. Dear Madiba, Please when you gloriously arrive at the great beyond, inform Lord Lugard that the people he amalgamated will be 100 years by 2014 celebrating full blown corruption and unfulfilled political promises; tell Herbert Macaulay that the party he founded has been turned to People Destroying Party. Bring it to the notice of Obafemi Awolowo that we now pay school fees without going to school and that the cost of education is now higher than that of bullet proof cars. Tell Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe that the long wall of democracy has fallen leaving only the cracked fence of nationhood standing; also tell Chief Anthony Enahoro that the independent Nigeria he toiled for is now a mirage. Make it an open secret to Yakubu Gowon that boko haram has marred his beautiful reason for NYSC as people no longer serve in the North; tell Alhaji Ahmadu Bello that the judicial system now favours only the rich. Tell baba Fela that Obasanjo was elected and re-elected Nigerian president after all he ...

well like one of the guest speakers said it's in our foundation. It came with lord lugard who came to run this country
Obasanjo sends a 18-page letter to the presidency, criticizing Goodluck Jonathan and I saw people screaming and yelling.. "OBJ is saying the truth.." Then I realized that indeed, our problem is not leaders per se but our gross mediocrity which we shamelessly display for the west to keep laughing at us. It's a shame and posterity will not forgive our generation and the generation before us for our lack of gumption. That OBJ sent that ridiculous letter to GEJ is not only an affront to our collective psyche, but an act of mockery because our frontal lobes have been designed to attracts stupidity. How can GEJ whose administration both as a military man and a civilian was notoriously known for breading corruption suddenly act the saint? Blaming GEJ for Nigeria woes that where orchestrated by his administration and those of GEJ predecessors which pello pepulli pulsum Nigeria 100-years behind time. They want GEJ to step down because of a mere agreement, and forsake his constitutional right of contesting for a 2n ...
upto date we are still been colonised by lord lugard soldiers, Nig is british hausa fulani product
I've said this once and i will say it again without fear of disapproval.The sole reason why there can never be any form of revolution seen around the Eagles Square in Abuja as seen in the squares in Cairo,Tunis,Tripoli and even in the past centuries in Paris and in today's Ukraine is simply because of the strong presence of prejudice and religious fanaticism. If we the youth of this country,who claim to be educated and well seasoned in the importance of unity in cultural diversity can still boastfully publish,support and even get blinded with ethnocentric views created by some unpatriotic and self centered politicians to gain fame and vote then i fear for our children cos i see another Rwanda here in a few years from now. There children might escape this genocide shopping in Paris or London but you know where you and your family will be when it starts. Perhaps Lord Lugard had yoked us all to a time bomb in 1914,when he almagamented regions that might have being better off on their own but i know God knew ...

By FEMI FANI-KAYODE In the last few days the following contributions from two eminent personalities have inflammed passions and been the topic of heated debate all over the country. The first came from Alhaji Lawal Kaita, a respected elderstatesman and a former Governor of the old Kaduna state on the platform of the defunct NPN. He was qouted as saying that “a northerner must emerge President in 2015 or we will divide”. The second came from Dr. Junaid Mohammed, a Second Republic legislator and a man that has held himself out as the unabashed spokesman of a small group of anti-southern and rabidly hardline conservative northerners over the last few years. He was qouted as saying that “there will be bloodshed if Jonathan runs in 2015″. In as much as I have consistently and vigorously opposed the Jonathan Presidency over the last two years there is only one thing that I abhor even more than the sheer ineptitude that I believe that the Jonathan administration represents and that is the sheer arrogance ...

NIGERIA CENTENARY: DIVISION IN THE FACE OF AMALGAMATION (Opinion) Nigeria, what a great nation! This most populous black race, multi-ethnic groups, multi-cultural, and multi-religious nation is endowed with lots of enviable human and natural resources. In spite of all these life changing resources that abound on her soil, counterclockwise is the bedrock of her growth in virtually all facets of life. Hmm, what a great nation indeed! Many political eras we have witnessed; countless unilateral, bilateral and multilateral agreements (treaties) had been signed among ourselves and even with both developed and developing countries of the world; lots of revolutions (coups) we have seen; sacrifices had been made and many years have passed, yet, breakthrough has failed to dwell on the developmental and progressive path of the Nigerian soil. One of the aforesaid formal agreements was the coming together of Northern and Southern Protectorates in 1914. Certain documents signed into law at the amalgamation of Nigeria i ...

[FACT]: The treaty for the amalgamation of was signed by Lord Lugard in Ikot Abasi in 1914
If no document was officially and legally signed between the Southern and Northern Nigeria's protectorates as at 1914' then logically and legally speaking, no document would also be needed to end the fraudulent Amalgamation of the South and Northern Nigeria as one. As we celebrate the END of Amalgamation of One Nigeria (by England through Lord Lugard) let us use this opportunity to let the world know ALL the evils committed against Biafrans by England and Hausa-Fulani.

A new day begins from 12 midnight, even though many may be fast asleep. A new segment of the day begins by 12 noon. In most parts of the world, the end of the 12th month begins a new year. I have just reflected on the history of Nigeria and found this interesting fact. From Lord Lugard to Yakubu Gowon, we had 12 generation of leaders and Gowon who was the 12th leader created the first set of 12 states in Nigeria. From Yakubu Gowon to Goodluck Jonathan, we have 12 generation of leaders including Gowon, Murtala, Obasanjo, Shagari, Buhari, IBB, Shonekan, Abacha, Abdulsalami, Obasanjo, Yaradua and Jonathan. This makes Goodluck Jonathan the 12th leader from Yakubu Gowon who created the 12 states. In my honest opinion, Jonathan should grow Nigeria beyond states as the 12th leader. The era to end states of origin and replace with place of residence has come. We need to create 12 zones from the present 36 states and increase the realm of cooperation among citizens of the various states. The time for a new Nigeria ...

lol... Lord Lugard, not rod. I don't want someone destroying this idea that we got our name after hot sex.
One suspects that Lord Lugard was scooped up from a drinking house in England and tasked to 'sort out' those Nigerians
"Person wey dey naked no fit put hand for pocket "- LorD LuGarD
Exactly, and what were we before Lord Lugard came? Kingdoms.
The Britain colonial policy maker Lord Lugard argued that Europe had double mission in African, one was to develop African resource for African own benefit, the other was to use those resource to meet the growing industrial requirement of western world-This was disintended partnership between Africa and the west-was it fulfilled in any case? Some surgically went wrong. Africa had exported Men and Women, a potential implements of production, Africa had imported from the West Guns –by definition, instrument of destruction.
To understand how old he was. He was 27 when Lord Lugard died.
Lord Lugard's House - is located near Amalgamation House.

Lord Lugard's amalgamation of Northern and Southern Nigeria expires in 3 months time
Flora Shaw named this Country 'Nigeria' while having sex with Lord Lugard. Nigeria was born out of Fornication.
Daily Trust shared the following link and had this to say about it: The call for an SNC is … “highly irrelevant and unnecessary… a waste of time… and what is needed is visionary to move the country forward. Any talk about a convergence of the different ethnic groups should have taken place after the amalgamation in 1914 by Lord Lugard, and not this time w…
what is the rational of 1914 Amalgamation without the concept of the People? Death unto the generation of Lord Lugard!
Ilaro, Ogun State is a town in Ogun State , Nigeria. Ilaro [1] is the headquarters of the Yewa Local government, now known as YEWALAND which replaced the Egbado division of the former Western State, whcich later and till today is in Ogun State of Nigeria, west of Africa. Ilaro town is about 50 km from Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, and about 100 km from Ikeja, the capital city of Lagos State. Other neighbouring towns to Ilaro, headquarters of Yewaland include, Ajilete, Oke-Odan Owode, Ibese, Oja Odan, Pahayi, Idogo-Ipaja, Papa- Alanto, and Imasayi. Ilaro was founded in the 18th century by Aro who migrated from the Oyo town [2] to settle down in Igbo Aje, [3] a little hill situated at the centre of the town from where he and his warriors could sight enemies (mostly slave traders from the neighbouring Benin republic known then as Dahomey) on attack from a long distance. Aro himself was a warrior and a hunter to be reckoned with. Ilaro had her name from "Ilu Aro" [2] meaning the settlement of Aro which la ...
CONFAB: SEARCH WITHOUT RESCUE excerpt-- "Some Nigerians with the patriotism of desperados have clasped President Goodluck Jonathan’s carrot of a confab. Better an imperfect jaw-jaw, they contend, than a pie-in-the-sky war-war that defines the hope of callers for a sovereign national conference." While debates flourish over whether or not we need a national conference, we should take some time off to reflect on our frenetic search for an answer as a nation. This search predated our independence in 1960, and the search reminds one of the Greek myth of Sisyphus. It is a story of a man who carries a rock up a hill and when he is almost at the top, the monstrous object falls back to the bottom of the hill. Sisyphus carries it up again and it falls back to the bottom and the travel up and down the hill continues for ever. It fits into a perpetual rigmarole. In the words of poet Okigbo, it’s like a coming and going that goes on forever. Nigeria has been yearning for a formula in that fashion since Lord Lugar ...
"In my opinion,the Best-Performing Governors in Nigeria are Raji Fashola of Lagos,Godswill Akpabio of AkwaIbom and Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of Kano.I will make sure the Queen recognises their efforts" - LORD LUGARD (1918)
