The Amalgamation of Nigeria: Revisiting 1914 and the Centenary Celebrations

Paul Eric


The aftermath of colonialism in Nigeria has affected Nigeria’s socio-political development, especially in the false marriage with the sobriquet; amalgamation where different entities were fused to live as one. This work seeks to explore the concept of amalgamation, its significance and analytical forethought in order to recommend solutions to some myriads of problems that the entity called Nigeria is engulfed in.
