Dear Nigeria… as a matter of Federal / National character, I strongly believe we NEED to abolish “State of Origin”

It celebrates lines. Borders. Race, Us Vs Them. Our strength is in ur diversity Yes. But its taken so long to prove this right.

Abolish “State of Origin” TODAY. For National Peace

One Nigeria ! One Nigeria !!
But We’re not quite willing to let go of the coattails of TRIBALISM.

Even AD commercials/Radio Jingles are culpable of passing subliminal messages that are nuanced in ways that make one wonder if there are :

– 3 Nigerias or
– 187 Others or
– Just 1 Nigeria.

If You still regard your neighbor with these derrogatives :

– Omo-Ibo ,
– Ofemmanu,
– Nyammiri…

You might be RACIST. Or sold to BIGOTRY.

There’s a thing or two to learn from a small country called RWANDA.

Imagine a policeman stopping you for routine checks and he pops the question :
” What State are you from”…

Oga !! What purpose does that question really serve?
