100 years of amalgamation. Worth celebrating?


Tomorrow, 1 January 2014, Nigeria will celebrate 100 years of the amalgamation of the Northern Protectorate and the Southern Protectorate. Protectorate and the Southern Protectorate formed Nigeria. It was a British creation for its administrative convenience. The main consideration was reducing cost of running the protectorates.

Is this worth celebrating?  Jonathan called it God Ordained. Some people call it fraud. What do you call it?
