"In a few months Nigeria will be 50. As an elder statesman, do you see any reason why the Golden Jubilee should be celebrated?
No! Except, perhaps, for keeping the name Nigeria. The only period I wish to celebrate, to be honest with you, is when our parents managed the affairs of this country. Yes, I mean before independence, when the Chief Azikiwes, Chief Awolowos, Sir Tafawa Balewa and Sir Ahmadu Bello, the Sardauna of Sokoto, governed this country. These are the people that deserve remembrance and celebration because when they took over the leadership of this country from the colonial masters, they performed to expectation. They took over government then from nothing, with nothing in terms of material resources for the government, manpower and others. In their days there was only one university, the University of Ibadan, which I attended from 1960 to 1964, and there were only 2,000 students across the country. So, there was no manpower for them as much as they wanted. And there was no back-up resources and manpower to use for development. But they went ahead and did so much in their respective regions and even at the federal level. Go to the West, we had free primary education and cocoa plantations. Palm products were what Azikiwe and the rest used to develop the East. In the North here, groundnut and cotton were what the northern leadership used to develop the region. But of course, they used every penny they could find and that is why they had nothing when they left us. So if there is any celebration, it is for us to celebrate the hard work of our founding fathers. Thereafter, there is nothing else to celebrate.”

….. Professor Ango Abdullahi, former Vice-Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University
