“Anambra State is commemorating the birthday of the man who led Nigeria to independence on October 1, 1960, and is renowned as The Great Zik of Africa because of his exceptional Pan-African vision and devotion for the third year in a row.

 

“It was the Great Zik of Africa who inspired great Pan-African leaders like Ghana’s Dr Kwame Nkrumah, who led his country to independence from colonial rule on March 6, 1957.”

“Zik, who was born in Zungeru, Niger State, and grew up in Calabar and Lagos, studied a variety of disciplines in the United States and is still the most urbane, cosmopolitan, and intellectually engaging of all Nigerian leaders.”

“Among other monumental and far-sighted achievements, he established Nigeria’s first indigenous bank, African Continental Bank, and Nigeria’s first indigenous university, University of Nigeria at Nsukka.”

 

“The fact that Nigeria has yet to declare November 16 as a national holiday is a national embarrassment.”
