The Zombie Republic- Nigerian 60th Independence
Nigeria's vision of its independence was one of power, prosperity and leadership. It was time to shake off the shackles of colonisation and become whole again. But reality didn't live up to the dream, and the ambitious nation is weighed down by a new set of shackles that it forged for itself.
In the face of this the people carry on, apathetic and barely alive, shuffling forward like zombies. The elite can cut off limbs without detection, taking money and power and agency. The zombie republic doesn’t notice.
