Fascinating photographs of 1930s Nigeria taken by a high-ranking education inspector in the decades before its independence from Britain have been unearthed after more than 65 years.

The images were captured by Edward Harland Duckworth, who served as inspector of Education in Nigeria from 1930 to 1944, and collated into a photo album by his friend Henry Svory, who was a head of department at Ibadan University at that time.

They provide an insight into the lives of the native population in the West African country in the decades preceding its independence from Britain in 1960.

Our greatest strength lies in our diversity.
Too bad we have only had corrupt and selfish leaders since independence.

Abeg historians, has any country ever survived without any figurehead leaders but in the community, more like the spartan and Roman civilisation of old where power lies in the voice of the people

this was when Lord Lugard thought his experiments was working out well, little did he know it was a great error, I wish He's alive today to see how woefully he failed...

Groundnut pyramid.



Groundnut pyramids were pyramid-like structures made from groundnut sacks.

The pyramids were built in northern Nigeriain cities such as Kano, where groundnut production was a key part of the economy.

They were viewed as both a tourist attraction and a symbol of wealth.

One groundnut pyramid could be made from as much as 15,000 full groundnut bags.

In the 1960s and 70s, as production in Nigeria shifted from agriculture to oil, the groundnut pyramids disappeared.

Recently, the Nigerian government has made efforts to revive the groundnut industry and rebuild the pyramids.
