Carter Bridge is Down—My Reflection on Nigeria at the Passing of the Queen

by Simon Wale Olatunji, Ph.D

A preamble

The passing of Her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth II, perhaps is the passing of the greatest monarch of all times and would probably leave the world with the greatest loss, clouds, and questions. For, little do most people know about the extent of her power, reign, and influence; and little do we all know about the massive culture shift coming for the United Kingdom, or of numerous changes coming for the world. This is because the late monarch was not just the Queen of England. She was also the Queen of other Commonwealth realms from the very rising of her reign unto its sunset.
