This question keeps bugging my mind most the time, from the 1914 when the contraption called Nigeria was conceived to the 60s when we finally gained independence, has Nigeria ever produced what can be described as a national political leader?
Each time I look around, the leaders I see (both dead and alive) can best be described as regional leaders. How is it difficult that in the 48 years (abi 94 yrs) of existence as a country that we do not have what can be seen for instance as a version of Mandela, Gandhi, Lincoln, Churchill, Nkrumah e.t.c.
If you feel strongly that Nigeria has produced a national leader that has been or is a rallying point and a beacon of light for all Nigerians, please do drop his/her name here and also tell us what he/she has achieved.
We may add a poll if it becomes necessary.
