Abstract

The broad external conjuncture (of events) on Nigeria’s and Africa’s nationalist struggles and decolonisation processes has in the recent past received marginal scholarly attention. But the historicity of the numerous international communications and episodes that precipitated and or accentuated and sharpened the anti-colonial toes of the Nigerian and African nationalists, leading to the political emancipation of the African states from the late 1950s, remains a topical issue in the chronicle of world history. Exploiting the advantages of secondary sources, therefore, the study examined the contributions of such Diaspora forces as Pan-Africanism, Garvey and Garveyism, and the Second World War as having tremendous influence on the Nigerian and African decolonisation endeavours.
