As the engine of Nigeria’s 50th independence celebration was heating up, I began to ponder on this thing called ‘independence’; and was asking how better off the people have been since October 1, 1960. Then, it occurred to me that even though we had gained independence from our colonial masters, we are in a greater mess than when we were under them.
