BRITISH COLONIALISM IN NIGERIA How do the citizens of Nigeria view colonialism? What were the effects of colonialism on Nigerian culture/religion? How did colonialism affect Nigerian economy? Negative:
Many citizens were taken to become slaves.
Effected population (decreased)
Economy was affected. What are the positive and negative effects of colonialism in Nigeria? Bibliography Many people were constantly scared because of the slave trade.
Many people believed that the land was rightfully theirs.
The natives were generally mistreated afterwards.
In 1929, when the British conveniently set up a warrant chief system to impose
a tax on the people of Aba, there were riots (especially by the women.) The British brought many of their own traditions to Nigeria.
They used education to gain power over the citizens of Nigeria.
The British also tried to convert many Nigerians from Christianity, But today, almost 40 percent of Nigerians are still Christian.
They eventually got control over the government. This angered the nigerians because they had NO say in their government.
