NAIJ: A History of Nigeria (2007)

Duration- 150 minutes

Director-Jide Olanrewaju

There is no end to the debate on whether state structures left by departing colonial powers have been more of a help or a hindrance to the development of Africa. Naij: A History Of Nigeria (2007) explores this theme in its telling of the story of Nigeria through its tumultuous transition from British Colony to Oil State. Using a combination of rarely seen archive footage, historical papers and interviews, the film attempts to explain how Nigeria has developed into the country it is today while shining a light on some of the individuals whose actions have helped shape the nation. Although completed in 2007, it remains a must watch for students of contemporary Nigeria History.
