THESE WORDS ARE AS GREEN AS OUR NATIONAL COLOUR (TRUE TILL DATE)

“In character and temperament, the African of this race-types is a happy, thriftless, excitable person, Lacking in self-control, Discipline (and) Foresight, (Full of) personal vanity, (with) little sense of veracity (fond of Music), (His) thoughts are concentrated on events and feelings of the moment, (and) he) suffers little from the apprehension for the future or grief for the past, (He lacks) the power of organisation, (and is conspicuously), Deficient in the management and control alike of man or business, He loves the display of power, but fails to realize it's responsibility...Perhaps the two traits which have impressed me as those most characteristic of the African native are his lack of apprehension and his lack of ability to visualize the future.”
- Extracts from The Dual Mandate (1926) by Lord Frederick Lugard (Governor General of Nigeria 1912 - 1918).
