“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.

  • @MrFixNigeria @DemolaRewaju I'll go back as far back as the Berlin conference of 1884 when Otto Von Bismarck and his European friends decided to share Africa amongst themselves without a single African Present. We still live with it effects today

  • @MrFixNigeria There is a Goebbles incarnate here rewriting history because he sat on the Table of his Oppressors to eat bread with them. @cchukudebelu placed him in his place. Sometimes we need to know that not every Joe should be told Abah when he tweets
