Why is Macron in Nigeria?

Why is Macron in Nigeria?

Being a proud fan of Fela and a respecter of the legacy of the Afrikan Shrine, it was a surprise for me that a President of France could be celebrated in the same shrine. The surprise is how he found his way into Fela’s Afrikan shrine. Is it to sell his imperialist agenda to Nigerians with the angle of Africanness? Have we quickly forgotten Fela’s tough stance against colonialism, neocolonialism and imperialism? With the controversy of Nigeria signing African Continental Free Trade Agreement (ACFTA) raging (in all fairness, we might not have a record the vocal support of Emmanuel Macron for the signing of the ACFTA or not by Nigeria), do we not understand that this strong advocate of regionalism and imperialism in Europe is here for business, not just culture or politics?
