A Professor of International law and former Vice Chancellor, University of Ado-Ekiti, Akin Oyebode, on Monday said little else apart from the replacement of the Union Jack with the Nigeria flag has changed since 1960.
Mr Oyebode, who was discussing the level of development in Nigeria since independence on Channels Television’s news at 10, said he thought that by now Nigeria should have experienced economic independence to ‘wrestle the firm hold imperialism’.
“But we’ve not succeeded in doing that. Nigeria has remained a neo-colonial economy. In fact, we’ve had more motion than movements in terms of progress in this country,” he said.
