“When did Nigeria go wrong?” One single event of history does not answer this question. But three events come to mind: 1. January 15, 1966 military coup which led to civil war. 2. Buhari overthrowing Shagari's democratic govt in 1983. 3. IBB's cancellation of June 12 elections.
@MrFixNigeria PLAIN TRUTH From Oct 1, 1960, till date, many events in the archives, explain HOW Nigeria WENT WRONG. But the Jan 15, 1966 Coup was the last straw. That said, Britain & Nigeria's Founding Fathers foresaw today, thus, why they opted for a LOOSED FEDERATION at the 1954 CONFAB. https://t.co/qCPOPXfoce
@MrFixNigeria TBH, I believe the coup that ousted Shagari from power really took Nigeria backwards. The fact that Alex Ekwueme could be the VP 9years after a civil war showed that the nation was on the path of reconcilation. The Buhari coup opened the flood gate for the subsequent decay.
