The struggle for independence in Nigeria entailed the concession by its elite citizens of local competence in taking over political administration from the colonialists. Nonetheless, the experience within the first republic brought to the fore the complexities of managing such a huge population with multiethnic and multi-religious diversity. The spate of political and economic corruption at the time led to military incursion into political administration, which dovetailed into the Nigerian Civil war, which threatened the survival of the nation then grappling with stabilizing its polity.
