Ukpabi Asika Assumes Control of Eastern Nigeria: 1970


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-11399157

 

Great BBC report about the end of the Nigerian civil war in 1970. Ukpabi Asika assumed control as administrator of the East Central State at the war’s end. This video analyses the awesome challenges he faced in trying to reconstruct an area destroyed by war, and people impoverished by a food blockade. Instructive that he said that the people he governed were “not expected to behave as defeated people”.
