Untitled[edit]

I feel this line of text should be rephrased:

"Azikwe returned to Africa to enter politics"

Africa, is a continent with many different countries....you have to be specific about where he returned to, namely his country, namely Nigeria.

Thank you.

  • I will change Africa to Nigeria. Next time be bold and edit it yourself! - Stoph 01:20, 30 September 2005 (UTC)

Premature obituary[edit]

The premature obituaries page states his obituary was published days before he died. A bit of an unfortunate coincidence I guess which must have consipiracy theorists working overtime. Can anyone elaborate on what actually happened? I notice he was very old so I guess may he may have been very sick or something so maybe they got misinformation? Nil Einne 22:32, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

If memory serves correctly, you are correct in your assumption that his age and failing health led to premature announcements of his death (as far back as 7 or 8 years prior, even). I doubt there were any conspiracy theories surrounding the issue since he was not prominently active in national/regional politics at the time of his death. Boonjava 20:36, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Do you have sources or details of any of these premature obituaries? If so please add them to List of premature obituaries as a reference. Thanks! Ben Finn 18:42, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Actually, the premature obituary was YEARS before his death. It was in 1988 or 89 (I was in elementary school at the time). It was first announced on NTA(TV) News. Prominent politicians (RBK Okafor) came forward to say they had been with him hours before his death. A committee of friends was set up even. The next morning all the papers carried the news. Then that evening, Zik himself was on TV protesting. Hilarious. I'll see if I can find any documentation on the web.


PLEASE, why is there no mention of his wife or children in the article? Is there any information on his family? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.206.15.1 (talk) 11:43, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

does anyone have access to any souces about legislative achievements from his presidency or what he did while in office? the deatils here are kind of sparse and I have been having trouble locating other secondary sources. any help would be greatly appreciated! 134.126.151.207 (talk) 13:48, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
