Oduduwa Republic


By Ndagi Abdullahi Amana Nupe

Sunday Igboho has just declared Yorubaland as no more part of Nigeria. He claims they now have an Oduduwa Republic similar to Nnamdi Kanu or Asari Dokubo’s Biafra Republic. Sunday Igboho, Nnamdi Kanu, Asari Dokubo and their ilk calling for secession and the disintegration of Nigeria are not serious. They are greedy illiterates using the call for secession to make money.

Anybody familiar with history and international relations knows that Nigeria will not disintegrate or separate into smaller parts.

Nigeria will instead grow and expand into a greater country. Soon regional economic and political arrangements will come into place that will, but in name, literally annex Togo, Benin Republic and parts of Niger, Chad and Cameroon to Nigeria thereby transforming a Greater Nigeria into a superpower economic and political bloc that will command the respect of the international community at the global level.

Nigeria is already fast growing into one of the greatest countries in the world. But ethnic jingoists and embittered politicians will only see to misinforming the Nigerian public that Nigeria is not working and that things are falling apart.

How could the largest economy in Africa with a population of over 200 million people close to two- thirds of which are youth be a non-performing economy? For those who don’t know, let me tell you that not even bad leadership or the ravages of insecurity can ground such an economic superpower.

Please disregard the childish and infantile rant of the downhearted and miserable wailers on the social media who don't see anything good with Nigeria simply because they know nothing about nation-building. Nigeria is on the historic rise to global dominance.

Our economy is growing, our population is growing, our political system is maturing, our infrastructures are expanding, our international profile is rising… all these despite the teething problems of insecurity and bad leadership.

Nigeria is a country to be proud of. We Nupe people are very proud of Nigeria. We are proud to be Nigerians.

We Nupe people are completely and totally opposed to these miscreants calling for secession or the disintegration of Nigeria.
