AGAINST ALL ODDS: THE IGBO EXPERIENCE IN POSTCOLONIAL NIGERIA
The 1960s in Africa was a period of significant political transformation which saw the end of European colonialism and the emergence of independent African states. Like other emerging nations in Africa, Nigeria entered the postcolonial period with a sense of optimism.
