Nnamdi Azikiwe was selected to represent Nigeria in the long-distance running events of the 1934 British Empire Games in England but was rejected by the British organisers because he dropped his Christian name, ''Benjamin''.

Azikiwe was actively involved in sports at every stage of his life and was successful in many events that he participated in.

He was a Boxing and High Jump champion (1925, 1926), Gold Medallist in Swimming (1927), Captain of a Football team (1930), Marathon winner (1933) and Tennis Champion (1938). #HistoryVille

Zik was great man, but unfortunately he made one huge blunder, the consequences of which his people are still suffering till this today. He had a chance to put an end to the contraption called Nigeria, but he decided to be a statesman rather than be a realist. History will never forgive him for that.

A brilliant young man who had a vision to free Africa from European bondage but the British created a geographical bermuda called Nigeria which weakened zik's vision and made him succumbed his vision to an illiterate emir up north whose only vision was to deep his Koran in the southern sea. Obviously that was the beginning of the end of zik and his vision.

A true nationalist who really never understood that the hausa-fulani concept of "One-Nigeria" is only when they're the ones in charge.
