Commemorating Nigeria’s Independence Day, Nigeria’s Freedom From British Colonial Rule on 1st October 1960. The Nigerian Independence Day is being observed this year on Tuesday, 1 October 2019 at Kaduna Business School’s premises. You are all invited.
About 2000 years ago, Nigerian people having Nok culture traded slaves, Ivory and kola nuts for salt, coral, fabric, and weapons. They worked with metals like iron and produced terracotta sculptures.
In the mid-1850s, Great Britain was expanding colonies around the world and Nigeria also became a colony of British rulers. By 1901, the British Government took strong control of the Royal Niger Company’s Nigerian territories, while Lagos, the former capital of Nigeria, became a British protectorate.
The Colonization lasted for over a hundred years, during which the British Government took full advantage of Nigeria’s natural resources until after World War II when an ‘independence movement’ for free Nigeria arose.
After a long struggle, the nationalism and independence movements kicked the British out and Nigeria became an independent state. The region was granted full independence on October 1st, 1960, marking the Nigeria Independence Day.
