Economy of Nigeria
This project is based on the goal of explaining an event in the relatively recent past by working progressively further into the past to uncover more and more information that seems to bear on the issues.
Even though the effort to create Biafra came out of the context of the challenges of independent Nigeria, don't historians need to look further back to see what happened in the earlier colonial and precolonial eras to learn more about the world from which Nigeria was created?
Of course we do. After all, this is a history course. Before going further, we need to be aware of the flow of events. For the purposes of this project the "colonial" period is essentially the period between World War I and World War II while the precolonial material presented here covers the 19th century up to World War I.
During the precolonial period there is already direct contact with Europeans who operate in port cities such as Bonny as well as indirect contact though the purchase of European goods through trade as well as the production of products intended to be sent to port cities. This commerce of course was added onto the slave trading networks which had existed since around As a result of a meeting of European powers in Berlin in , the interior of Africa was divided into colonial possessions of European countries.
The English move into the land of the Igbo followed shortly thereafter, covering the period from And, in , northern and southern Nigeria were united for administrative purposes into a single British colony.

There were some specific outcomes and impacts for Africans as a result of WWI. These include the fact that military conscription draft of numerous African colonial subjects into European armies generated great amounts of anger. But the war had more concrete consequences. Africans who fought alongside European whites found out that these "masters" were ordinary people, not supermen. Furthermore Africans expected to be rewarded for their service to their colonial masters with social and constitutional changes as well as economic concessions in ways that would improve their living conditions at home.
The term means that people should be independent and live within political boundaries that corresponded to where they lived. Rather than relaxing colonial strictures in gratitude after the war, the European presence in Africa intensified.
By , all those areas that were still holding out against the imperialists and clinging to their sovereignty This meant that more Africans were feeling the pinch of colonialism by the s than were by the s.
One would therefore expect to see a corresponding change in the scale of anti-colonialist or nationalist activities. Frustration and disappointment therefore grew among the educated elite, and since their number increased during the period, their became reactions not only intensified and anti-colonial but anti-traditional rulers as well. And economic conditions changed. The s and s saw worldwide economic crises which caused the price for those things produced in African countries—raw materials and cash crops—to drop sharply remember that this is the period of the Great Depression and the events leading into it.
At the same time the prices of goods imported from Europe skyrocketed. Furthermore, this period saw the rise of efforts by African Americans and others of African descent outside of Africa to link the condition of colonized Africans to universal concepts of justice, natural rights, and human rights with the goal of eliminating colonialism by promoitng independence.
This Pan-African movement attempted to gain a hearing immediately after World War I by issuing a manifesto that called for In the midst of these events the British inaugurated a system of "indirect rule" as the most effective way to manage their colonies. This system represented the backdrop to the post-World War II move to create an independent Nigeria and represented the framework for relationships between all Nigerians and the "mother country.

Economic Growth and Trade
Before the creation of ECOWAS, the collective territory known as West Africa, was made up of an aggregation of states that had emerged from different colonial experiences and administrations which largely defined the boundaries of the 15 states domiciled in the area. Even though Member States of the community now make use of three official languages English, French and Portuguese , there are well over a thousand existing local languages including cross-border native tongues such as Ewe, Fulfulde, Hausa, Mandingo, Wolof, Yoruba, Ga, etc. Prior to colonialism, the area played host to many proud empires and kingdoms that spanned centuries, some of which included Ghana, Mali Songhai, Wolof, Oyo, Benin and Kanem Bornu.
