Abstract:Critical analysis shows that the assumption made by writers (e.g. James Coleman in 'Nigeria: background to nationalism') that the ex-soldiers played a significant role in the politics of Nigeria breaks down Certain factors rendered their role as a group insignificant in the history of the nationalist movement of the country. This is worked out under the headings: The sources of discontent - The political unimportance of ex-servicemen. Notes.
