Nigeria is an artificial creation, I admit.

 

But it is impossible that we will return to our primordial autonomous ethnic configuration after almost a century of coexistence.

 

Following a visit to many parts of Nigeria, I became convinced that Nigeria came into existence because autonomous ethnic groups were destined to coexist.

 

Similarly, a visit to Wuse market, Gudu Market, here Abuja, or Ladipo and Mandillas in Lagos, brought me into convergence with the Igbos and Hausas.

 

My experience there as an observer brought me to the conclusion that our national identity can’t be eroded by unhealthy ethnic aspirations.

 

ALL IN ALL, OUR BEAUTY LIES IN OUR DIVERSITY.

 

Burning Nigeria down because of a phobia, whether valid or invalid for one person, is quite unethical.

 

Instead of calling for the balkanisation of Nigeria, why not accelerate and facilitate the election of a better political representative that will blur division along ethnic lines?

 

If we address colonial faultlines, I believe we will coexist amicably.

 

The colonial faultlines benefit machine politicians. This is the sole reason for the status quo’s preservation.

 

The Yorubas are united because of Nigeria. So are the Igbos, Hausa, Fulanis and others.
