Jeremy remembers Harold Smith: “Harold was a courageous man who took on the corrupt dying embers of colonial rule in Nigeria and paid a heavy price for it.”

    Re Grand Conspiracy Against Nigeria
    Harold Smith will always be remembered by every one in Nigeria. He have done well for the people of Nigeria, because his apology memo that reveals the conspiracy of Britain against Nigeria has clearly shown that the present day Nigeria is a mere map expression.
    This revelation has given us enough reason to dissolve the present Nigeria peacefully so that each component goes their own way without any row; after all Southern Cameroon has left in the early years of 60s without any hostility.
    It is now for every serious-minded and peace loving people of the present so-called Republic to press for disengagement and relief from the pains, pangs and distress that comes out of this unholy matrimonial between the northern and southern hemisphere of Niger called Nigeria without further delay.
    Reason for round table talk between the current multiple Nations that had been suffering in this region is more than clear. It is now highly necessary for all the State Executives of the current 36 Nigeria States should be planning seriously on the way out of this unholy marriage that comes from this grand conspiracy.
    It is better if this is done as early as possible as this will make the people of the territory be good neighbors instead of hostile partners in an unholy wedlock
