Nigeria, the most populous nation in Africa also being the most populous black nation on the earth is made up of different people, different cultures, diverse beliefs, ideaologies, tribes, religion and most important of all an ever increasing population index.
This is exhibited by her citizenry as there are diverse cultures and belief systems which harmonize its populace into one great nation. Being on various international organizations, it’s believed also be the centre of attraction on the continent as any event which takes place is being watched by the world at large. This has made up for international organizations to put up stringent measures in place to bring back the glory of its nation once again.
Although, the glory of her can not be overly emphasized, there are different problems which poses serious threats to its peace like inter tribal wars, ethnic clashes, corruption at its government houses, looting and embezzlement of public funds, hate speeches and all sorts of vices which degrade her in its totality.
This ethnic vice is seen recently as there has been given a quit notice to the people of the South Eastern region to vacate their places of residence in the Northern parts of the country. This quit notice given by the Arewa Youth Movement of the Northern group has brought criticism by both various independent groups and also international bodies. This notice was given on basis of no concrete evidence as to what offence the people of their Eastern origins has committed. This also has brought sparks of hate speeches, inditing tribal wars if the notice is not adhered to.
This notice has been brought to the notice of the Federal Government who is now taking strict measures to avert another civil war from happening in our own time. These measures needs be put in place to prevent a blood bath from happening again. Those involved in the plans of quitting the Igbos from the North should be arrested as the Right to Freedom is being threatened.
If certain actions are not taken, there will be loss of lives ultimately crippling the economy.This and many more action plan be set up to avert the war that is being planned. We are all Nigerians and this nation belongs to us all so there should not be the segregation among its citizens. Cabals who fool its citizens into believing that the nation belongs to us all masking the fact of their selfish greed should desist from such acts as these are unhealthy to our unity.
I do believe in the unity of Nigeria but should not be fooled along the way.There should be love which as a cord binds us all in unity. I do believe we should work for her progress and not her division. United we stand, divided we fall should be our theme song because Nigeria belongs to us all.
One candid advice I would give is this; Nigeria will and do not belong to the North alone. So they should stop this belief system that Nigeria is theirs alone.They should consider the fact that Nigeria is a multi cultural, multi lingual, multi religious and multi ethnic nation.
GOD BLESS US ALL!!!
I BELIEVE IN ONE NIGERIA!!!
