Chapter One British Cultural Promotion in Nigeria Before 1954 Introduction The first contact between Britain and Nigeria began in the sixteenth century along the Nigerian coastlines. During this period, British slave trading companies were preoccupied with establishing their trading posts to control the profitable “Transatlantic Slave Trade” without trying to control the local tribes. By the beginning of the nineteenth century, however, and due to the abolition of the slave trade throughout the British Empire, the trading interests of the British in Nigeria gradually shifted to “Legitimate Commerce” in such goods as ivory and palm oil with the inland populations. These new commercial interests led to the acquisition of Lagos in 1861, Southern and Northern Nigeria in 1900 and finally the amalgamation and the placement of the Northern and Southern regions under British colonial rule in 1914. British colonization of these regions brought a new culture whose propagation remained essentially the preoccupation of the Christian missionary societies until the twentieth century.

It started in the 1600s when the East India Trade Company made its way on the trading post. The post made way for the British to export most of their goods back to Great Britain and to take over India.

However, finding the Spice Island was not so easy so the Dutch needed help from the locals. When the Portuguese went away from Indonesia, the Dutch had a chance to monopolize the commodities like spices. Kings and princes used to rule their own territories and commodities before the Dutch came. In 1602, the Dutch founded VOC (Vereenidge Oost- Indische Compagnie) or Dutch East India Company that the purpose was to gain as much money as possible.
