He was a Nigger without any Area only to have Area after indepence hence a Nigeria.
But it still beat my imagination why we prefer to kill ourselves in order to keep an offensive name given to us by a h@rlot.

Obafemi Awolowo, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Anthony Enahoro were all callled Nigerian Nationalists craving for independence. All these people mentioned were older than Obasanjo.

It was Nigeria nah, we didn't name the country we inherited the name.
We had the southern Protectorate and the northern Protectorate, then in 1914 both were merged to form this country.
