Economics of the Nigerian Civil War

by Reuben Ogbudinkpa

This study elaborates the wealth of indigenous technological innovation expedited by the Biafran war. It outlines the gains from the destruction, the Biafrans' contribution to technological advance, and the impact of these advances on the Biafrans themselves. It describes the so-called mechanical military innovations which include British gun cotton, the Biafran bush refinery, and some 'civilian welfare orientated innovations'. The final chapter examines the Federal Government's attitude to indigenous technology which, this author argues, is broadly one of non-acceptance, and rooted in 'the pre-independence colonial programming of Great Britain' in Nigeria.
