Transcript of World Geography Project Prezi Imperialism in Nigeria

By: Lia, Karrot, Diana, Taiyo, and Meklit Imperialism in Nigeria Just The Basic's Positive Effects that imperialism gave What Were The negative effects? The Nigerian citizens lost their land as well as their independence. Since, the british decided to educate the Nigerians; there literacy rate increased dramatically. The Western superpower that colonized Nigeria was Britain; and Britain was in contact with Nigeria since the 1400's and did not officially become colonized until January 1, 1901. Nigeria gained independence in 1960 after World War 2. Nigeria was a country that Britain took over because they were rich in resources that were in high demand but low in the westward country. The type of government Britian used on Nigeria was indirect rule. Nigeria Nigeria was the second country in Africa to be colonized by British Officials. Even More Negative Effects The biggest negative effect was the division between the Nigerians after it was colonized by the British officials The British completely exploited all of Nigeria's useful resources and exploited Nigeria's people. The british colonies helped improve the citizens hygiene and their health. There were railroads, trains, dams, telephones, and telegraph lines built; once these were put up there became a stable economy.

They needed materials for their industries to make materials and boost their economy. There were some who thought colonization was good for the africans because it ‘civilized’ them. The missionaries taught Christianity and the nurses improved the health of the people immensely. The British Empire had made contact with Nigerian tribes as early as the 15th century, but only claimed it five centuries later in 1914 The first association was through British merchants and the Royal Navy. After nearly a century of being oppressed by former comrades, Nigeria gained unequivocal sovereignty in October 1960. They were susceptible to colonization because they had inferior weapons, and lack of unity between tribes rendered the people weaker, and easier to colonize. Nigeria, although territorially isolated from England, was rich in raw materials and exotic foods. Gold, manpower, and tree nuts abounded aplenty. Although British conquerors treasured the yellow rock often used in jewelry, they had yet to discover the most valuable resource of all. Black gold, was hidden deep underground, a secret cache waiting to be discovered. The British needed the resources such as gold, diamonds, and other precious minerals, because they were important to Western industry. At the time Britain did not have any or very little of those resources needed for the success of Britain. They needed to dominate trade and compete with other nations.

It was unfavorable because the the nigerians were forced to work long hours and they also had a very low pay. The work they day was very hard and people died and got injured on job. The Nigerians also had a lot of rules and laws added they didn’t have before. With all these laws added their lives became a lot harder than they already were.

The missionaries taught Christianity and the nurses improved the health of the people immensely. In 1929 women in the eastern commercial city of Aba held a rowdy but effective and victorious protest against high taxes and low prices of Nigerian exports. After World War II, in response to the growth of Nigerian nationalism and demands for independence, successive constitutions legislated by the British government moved Nigeria toward self-government on a representative and increasingly federal basis. By the middle of the 20th century, the country wanted to get it’s independence. Nigeria became independent in 1960. Nigeria's POV being colonized
