by Margery Perham
Fellow of Nuffield College. Oxford
Nigeria has been called ' the giant with a delicate constitution.' Will independence, and the severe problems that face all African leaders today, strengthen or strain Nigeria's new nationhood and the balances so laboriously built into its federal structure? Miss Perham, who has just returned from the latest of many visits, assesses the strength and the weakness of the giant, and the part it may play in Africa's future.
