The Duke of Edinburgh and husband to Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip died on Friday morning, April 9, aged 99.

Well, he was a symbol of colonialism that has affected several nations till today......Nigeria will be 61years post independence and the nation and others serve him till he was 39yrs along with his nation. We are yet to recover from the lies used to draft constitutions and create nations out of the people.
