I came across an interesting read about the history of Nigeria and how one action has affected the country of Nigeria for 50 years. The coup on January 15th 1966. The article published by thisdaylive.com “January 15th 1966 the day that changed Nigeria” – I recommend this read, very thought provoking (link to article below).

I read this and I thought ironic isn’t it. The Coup was done because of the alleged corruption of senior officials 50 years later corruption is a standard in Nigeria.
