If Nigeria Breaks Up, Will It Affect Africa? by DopestepTJ(m): 2:10am On Jul 26, 2014
"Nigeria’s economy surpassed South Africa’s as the largest on the continent after the West African nation overhauled its gross domestic product data for the first time in two decades." http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-04-06/nigerian-economy-overtakes-south-africa-s-on-rebased-gdp.html

Nigeria is being often referred to as the "Giant of Africa" especially by Nigerians.
With the Boko Haram activities going on in the country, many Nigerians are foreseeing a break up (My Assumption).

I'm not an expert when it comes to economy and stuff, but I've been a bit curious lately. Let's assume Nigeria breaks up, do you think it will have any effect on Africa? If yes, how will you relate Nigeria's break up with Africa being affected as a whole?

1. 80% of investments by Africans around Africa is by Nigerians and these investments is mostly fueled (at least in capital) by the commonweath oil money, once that commonweath is broken, many sectors, banking, manufacturing, trading will fall.

2. Nigeria is the highest exporter of high skilled professional in Black Africa. We have Nigerians as Chief Judges in many African countries and doctors

3. 80% of television adverts revenues in Africa is from Nigerian company or companies doing business in Nigeria. That is why FIFA always pray that Nigeria qualifies for World Cup.

4. Nollywood is felt in all parts of the continent

5. Music. If you are underestimating the impact of Nigerian music, visit popular artists tour of other African countries and you will be amazed at the fans.

6. Church. Nigerian Pastors are actually taking over the land. Even if you don't care about the Gospel, the motivational and Inspiring words will lift you from your present state in life.

7. It is said silently in government circles in most African countries, if Nigeria could do this then we can.

You need to step out of Africa and the Western media to know the value of Nigeria and why USA is even threatened

And this time bomb didn't explode for a century now. That is about half the years the US have been in existence. If we didn't split for 100 years when would we split? We should have separated the very first day we were merge together. Now we have become too interwoven to ever separate. Sorry...The best that can happen to Nigeria is each region becoming an autonomous republic and controlling their resource. That is the absolute best that can happen.
