Nigeria at 50...

The BBC is slowly ramping up content on its Nigeria birthday page. There are some nice archival clips - I hope that they raid their vast library to put some more up in the next few days.  Am I being a fussy old fart by pointing to the inaccuracy of the "Nigeria at 50" tag?  Nigeria is of course 109 years old, or 96 years old if amalgamation is your starting point.

Amalgamation should be the starting point, so Nigeria is 96 years old. But of course 'independent Nigeria' (I laugh at the phrase) is 50.
