Happy 54th Independence Nigeria (October 1, 2014)

Historical evidences indicate that the earlier inhabitants of Nigeria were thought to have the Nok tribe followed by Kanuri, Hausa and Fulani who migrated to the country in the subsequent years. In the 13th century Islam was introduced in Nigeria, and the Kanem Empire continued to rule the country till the 14th century. With the annexation of British in 1886, it became a British colony in the later years. After years of hard struggle and political turmoil Nigeria achieved independence on 1st October 1960.


The vast landscapes of the country, stretching from the Obudu Hills of the southeast through the beaches in to the rainforest regions of the Lagos estuary the country has worth while natural splendors to explore.

Culturally one of the diverse countries of Africa, Nigeria is home to more than 250 linguistic ethnic groups as Yoruba, Hausa, Fulani and Igbo. The folk music of Nigeria has gained tremendous boost with indigenous fusion giving it a new dimension in the past few years. The economy of Nigeria has come of age with the exploration of oil and petroleum deposits which accounts for nearly 50% of its income. Also the vast mineral resources extensively contribute to the economic upsurge of the country.
The Nigerian Independence day remains incomplete without paying marked homage to its famous freedom fighters and leaders who have inspired the country independence struggle. To know more about the different facets of Nigeria, scroll through these links---

Gainsaying, the kanuris are not the first to settle in Nigeria, may be your talking of the northern Nigeria, but surely not Nigeria as whole. Kanem empire never ruled down to southern Nigeria, please dust your history books, may be your still talking of northern Nigeria here. Obudu hill is not in the south east.Nigeria oil accounts for more than 80% of national income, not "nearly 50%" as you wrongly stated.

There's nothing I've grown up to love about this country. Everything I use to know or even admired as a kid I've come to find out to be nothing more than a dream. A Nation that doesn't show its love or loyalty to her people cannot expect the same or even think it possible that the people should love it. I am my own Govt in this country so I laud myself for being a good man even in the face of oppression from the country. I celebrate myself and the other Nigerians that are doing good considering all things.
