How Azikiwe Stopped Nigeria From Breaking Up

History buffs will enjoy this interview with the President of Ohaneze Ndigbo Ralph Uwechue.  Here he talks about Nnamdi Azikiwe as a pioneer bridge builder, and how he (via a pan Nigerian outlook) ensured Nigeria remained united and worked hard to sustain Nigerian unity. Very good interview with lots of nuggets including his thoughts on the Igbo in Nigeria and accounts of Nigeria’s pre-independence history.

A good segue into the series of articles on Zik’s life that I have been working on. Enjoy.
