Culture Trip | The Sokoto Caliphate

  1. Love these series. It’s a good way to learn new things about Nigeria. One thing that surprises me about history is the good and bad sides of leaders. The good here being the leadership of a prosperous state and the support of education and the bad being slavery and war. Sometimes, storytellers tend to favor one side or glorify the bad side and write it off as a positive thing…but yeah, definitely learnt something new today.

    1. I agree with you. Storytellers and historians hardly tell the full story and definitely favor the side that seems more interesting.

      There was so much to write on the Sokoto Caliphate but maybe a series will be done on it. I think for me it’s just interesting to see how much history Nigeria has.

      Ps glad you enjoy these series.
