Professor Akin Oyebode, is a Professor of International Law And Jurisprudence at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), who is also a delegate at the ongoing National Confab in Abuja. He suggested here in this interview, among other things, that "Nigeria" is a colonial name bequeathed by the colonial ruler, Lord Lugard, as suggested to him by his "girl friend", Flora Shaw.
He says Nigeria should change its name from "Nigger Area," to the "United Republic Of Songhai."
Oyebode also said the River Niger was wrongly named, adding that the River actually discovered Mungo Park, and not the other way round.
He explained the reasoning for his positions in this interview with SaharaTV. Enjoy!
