Nigeria's Independence
In the aftermath of the caos of the Great War Nigeria declared itself independent. The British were somewhat angry but were to lazy to punish Nigeria and they wanted to protect the country form foreign harm so they guaranteed Nigeria's Independence. The Nigerians were relieved but a little bit annoyed that although this gave them time to prepare the worlds perception of Nigeria was that it was a puppet state. Nigeria would show the world what a folish pereption that was soon but not yet......
Here are the details of the Cabinet:

Are you going for start as UK, liberate then reload? If so then edit the save game file (.eug) find the bit starting

country = {
tag = NIG
ai = {

then go down to nationalprovinces and put in all the province IDs for what you want to claim but now own at the start.

As for the idea, it's different I'll give it that. Ignoring the plausibilty (Nigeria not a puppet or even Allied to the UK) it's going to be a hell of a challenge. Most of Africa is French or British, either one on their own would tear you apart. An independent un-allied South Africa might be takeable, but they're not so they're out as well. Liberia being a US puppet would be suicide to attack so ignore them. Italian Africa, while far weaker than the Allies and the US is still way out of your league (You've got 9IC!)

In short you have Portugal left as almost a close match.

I do hope I haven't been offputting but without joining a major alliance I think your African expansion will be severly limited.

I just started to follow this AAR, I'd say after portugal, ally with the allies and make huge territorial gains on Vichy France if they ever happen. So when the eventual civil war comes around (Nigerian civil war) ther can be a bunch more factions. :rofl:

Also, what do your tech teams look like?

Skill 1?

The Portugese-Nigerian War Phase One
The Portugese-Nigerian War started as a result of Nigeria's lack of Energy sources and it's desire to rule Africa. It started on April 20 1937 and Nigeria since it possesed only one transport ship as it's navy could only ferry one division at a time to nearby Portugese Angola. The Portugese Army was taken by surprise, the Nigerian landing had taken out the only province with a beach. The Nigerian Army eventually ended up sending 2 out of 3 infantry and 2 out of 12 militia divisions. By June 28 1937 Angola was fully Nigerian.

The next step was the seizure of Portuagal itself in order to gain a profitable peace, befoe that a naval base had to be seize. The portugese nanal base in(can't remmember ill edit when id do) was seized and troops were built up for an Invasion of the Portugese mainland. The preaparations were complete by July 27the and an armada was sent to capture Portugal. By August 2nd they succeeded in securing a beachead and reinforcements were on their way.


Thaaaaat's all for now

Victory
After capturing Lisaboa, the Portugese government gave Nigeria nearly all of it's overseas colonies. Of the colonies that were not given, they were left landlocked and there was no way to access them. Now that Macao was Nigerian the Nigerian government was seriouslly considering a Chiniese Intervention Force. This map shows the final positions in portugal before the Armistice

A Chinese Intervention Force? Safe to say you're not thinking small. Of course, this helpfully gives you a few critical naval bases about the place. A very useful war, all told.
