As an African and a witness of the aftermath of colonialism in african states and Nigeria precisely i think colonialism was a bad idea and european should pay for it, during the colonial era their sole aim was exploitation and nothing else.

Hi ElectorAlexander, and welcome to Historum.

Just to clarify, do you think that the Europeans should pay for the grievances made in the last 50 years? 100 years? 200 years? 500 years? 1000 years?

In other words, how many years should we go back in time to measure grievances?

An apology to prove you've changed is (all) bienvenue so to speak, but if your critique of the object in question is a bit off, and/or there is a trace of hypocrisy to be found within the organisation doing the apology ... ... as so many of the above posts state and imply, what are you not apologising for ?
Sense, you make none.

Only Europe or all colonial powers? How did the subjects of the Fulani empire feel about their overlords?
