Nigeria my country. Watching this video just makes me cry.
The first and the last Prime Minister we've ever had in the Federal Republic of NIGERIA.
According to the Historians, Nigeria then was a very good country, we had everything we want, there was free education, free food, because our agricultural system was tremendous, we didn't have crude oil then, but we had cocoa as our major means of economic growth. Most of those skyscrapers buildings in Ikoyi Lagos, Cocoa house in Dugbe Ibadan, some good buildings in Calabar, Enugu ,Kano were all built by cocoa money.
The first university in Nigeria "University of Ibadan was built by cocoa money", University of Lagos, Obafemi Awolowo university Ile Ife, Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, University of Nigeria Nsukka and plenty other primary and secondary institution were all being built with cocoa income.
We had a very good infrastructural facilities, we had good pipe born water, we had goods roads, we had good railway transportation, life was comfortable for our parents and grandparents.
Our economy was so good that a Nigerian pounds was higher than a dollar. But a military coup in the mid 60s jeorpadise the future of our great nation "NIGERIA"
