Should Nigeria Be Divided?

Republic of Biafra - http://www.biafraland.com - Gigantic Movement for the Independence of an Igbo Country

Republic of Oduduwa - http://www.geocities.com/yorubacountry/history.html - Slight Movement for the Independence of a Yoruba Country

Arewa Emirates - Nothing

Unity of Nigeria is not going to work, and I am just sighting a very bloody future if Nigeria is not divided now, anything can happen in the future, If the said unity is there, issues of power sharing, revenue allocation, will not rise.

I am from the North, but I heard that northern leaders are meeting in case 'Yar adua die, the election should be cancel to avoid Goodluck becoming the President, I am really Sad to hear this, and this should not continue like this,  I think all major Nigerian ethnic groups (Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo) should each rule their people,  I'm afraid of Nigeria's future if action is not taken now.

History of Nigeria is pretty complicated. This country was created artificially by the British during the colonization times. It has united a great number of tribes, including such major ones as Yoruba, Hausa and Igbo. Naturally, these tribes strife over dominion, economy and other things. Still, working together can bring much good for each of them and provide them with more opportunities on the world’s political and economic scene. If people are to overcome their differences and opinions and get united, they could create a great country blessed with prosperity and power.

Fact is people. . . . .those of us who want separation will not get it unless by force.

The Northerners and those profiting from the current arrangement will never agree to a peaceful separation.

So enough yapping already and hit that military camp.

@debosky,

even if nigeria were one tribe - i doubt we'd have peace - somailia , if i remeber is a single tribe- with clans clashing for ascendancy

are you sure the 'turmoil' ( i think genocide is a better word) is a fair enough trade for what would pass as autonomy?

oddly enough, the ibos who constatntly call for a split of nigeria are the most dispersed tribe. with all the noise about zamfara, i have seen ibos doing brisk buisness there. i was on tour(work) up north for 2 weeks. i had to buy electrical spare parts at several locations, and everywhere i went, it was ibos doing the selling. so for me most of this noise about pulling out of nigeria is just that - noise - i cant see them leaving their markets behind.

There is no doubt that more than one tribe or group has contributed to the mess we are in.

The pertinent question is this - Can we or will we ever be able to rectify the mess in our current state?

You talk of Yugoslavia - yes they had periods of turmoil, but now, Slovenia is a member of the EU, Croatia is moving closer and is getting more prosperous. Slovenia is joining a larger union, but on IT'S OWN TERMS.

Granted that China is heterogeneous yet succeeding, that is not enough reason to claim or think Nigeria will do so as well.

I concur with negro - the country should be split, but on a non-violent basis.

Did you review your opinion before you posted? Why do yo want a foreigner to come and solve your grievance for you? If you have a grievance with Nigeria you solve it your own self, through discussion or through confrontation, whatever works for you.

Those that invoke the fear of war as the outcome of Nigeria separation never tell us what the war will be about, who will be fighting who and what for? You don't start a war because someone told you to exercise you freedom self existence. Why would you fight a war because your marriage partner for nearly 50 years want you to stay away and live her on her own? Those who had lost the argument of one Nigeria will always use scare tactics of spreading rumours of war as if Nigeria now is a peaceful haven.

The amont of people that die in Nigeria on a daily basis is not different from most war theatres, if not bigger, so why is the use of war to scare people? Tell me what you will miss most if Nigeria ceast to exist as one single entity?  Many one Nigerianas will live and die from where they were born without ever any interest in any other part of one Nigeria but will be the first to jump in to cue of protectorate. Why protect what you never ever give a damn about in the first person. They will be the first to call their fellow one Nigeria bridgage visitors, foreigner or non indegines, so what is the basis of one Nigeria?

Most Yorubas on this forum and beyond had start to understand the wisdom of separation of Nigeria for those that want to go, but still majority of them still live in the warped time of don't think, don't do anything, some how, a miracle will happen and Nigeria will become the new United States.

I had asked this question time and time and again without any answer but rather an abuse from most Yoruba sons, on why they are hail bent on keeping Nigeria one, if they are not the beneficiaries of the bended republic called Nigeria. If they love Nigeria so much, why don't they advocate that those that want to leave should do so, while they continue the marriage with the rest of their moslem brothers. But no, they don't want to live alone and they will do all they can to make sure that others don't exercise their right and choice of independence.

smurf, i say remove yoruba and bendle and hand it over to benin republic. you create less problem,  You also at the same time reunite the yorubas, egun and borgu people with their brothers. Note that even the president of benin republic is from borgu. my map is based on the constant visit of the 5 igbo governors to Aso rock in the last 4 month. nearly 4 times already, so it shows the igbos would work very well with northerner.

Gasikiya ni, you see some people here say they went to makarrata , walahi, you know they never went to any makarrata or they are not using it walahi. You see if  you go  market and you are hold naira goma  what can you buy. how long would people continue,  some years ago naira goma was alot of money, now,  you can't buy anything with it.

You see some of this people have not lived in nigeria before, if they have they do not understand the politics of nigeria. Let me educate some of them. You see if you look at the satellite pictures. It shows that the nigeria living in the western niger of Nigeria, that is the yorubas, edo,delta and kogi is nearly about 42 to 44 % of nigeria.  

Now if you want to practical true democratic government. it is going to be very difficult to elect a northerner under a true democratic system,     If we do not practices democratic government we would go to war, if we practics and the north can not get elected. they would start a war,  So that why, i say to make a peaceful agreement now.

So that in future we do not have problem. Look in other africa countries with less than 20 million people  and less 30 group. you can see how violent it as been. Now imagine allowing an africa countries to have 240 different group . from liberia, to congo, to rwanda , somali, sudan etc

It would be wicked by the united nation to continue to keep nigeria one, and would be wicked and heart to say we should practics democratic system while the north in future would not have the population to be elected into the position of president. That why i am calling for the break up of nigeria. To save more than 40 million that would be killed , if we fail to divide nigeria.

Auwal,  This is the blueprint of the English gnerally in all their colonial conquests in Africa, Asi, Middle East and even in America.  Their calculation paid off as you correctly observed. The groundnuts pyramids are gone, the millet farms are gone, the cocoa farmer is a victim, palm oil, gum arabic, . . name it, all squandered.  In particular cocoa - because it is a staple of their menu whether as beverage or confectionaries and sweets; marketed at very profitable margin.  Why should Nigeria be importing cooking oil. . .why?  They were selfish, greedy and inhumane in their treatment of indigenous people for the protection of their motherland and their royal throne.   The North imposing on the South because of oil revenue is as callous and cold as the English amalgamating non-integral tribal groups into a self-living and self-stirring cauldron of hate and chaos.

Thanks for your obsevation.

This shows how un-educated you are about Northern Nigeria, who tell you that Hausa, Fulani, or Shuwa Arabs are not United? Please think again, the next time you see Hausa man, please ask him if in his family he don't have any Fulani, we are all linked up, Islam has since united us, we are family now, and NO force can divide us, Hausa-Fulani or Shuwa Arabs, hahahahahaha, u make me laugh wallahi, I just think u've never come to the North before, please read History of Hausa Fulani, Okay KID, TIVs? It s okay for them to choose, since it is not by force to remain together, they are free to go if they don't like,

once upon a time, pakistan and india were a single entity - today they are constatntly at each others' throats

ditto for ethiopia and eriteria

we dont need to get started on yugoslavia

anyone who thinks splitting nigeria will solve our problems is deluding himself - if history is anything to go by - it will at best lead to a consistent game of cat and mouse, andd at worst a descent that would make yugoslavia look benign.

more to the point - when you consider the fact that nigeria is made up of over 250 distinct tribes a breakup will not end at the so called "big three". would the ijaws/urhobos/itsekiris etal want to be part of a biafra dominated by ibos? would tivs/fulanis/shuwa arabs/etc want to be part of an arewa dominated by hausas?

china does not comprise a single ethnicity

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China

Languages

Main article: Languages of China

Most languages in China belong to the Sino-Tibetan language family, spoken by 29 ethnicities. There are also several major dialects within the Chinese language itself. The most spoken dialects are Mandarin (spoken by over 70% of the population), Wu (Shanghainese), Yue (Cantonese), Min, Xiang, Gan, and Hakka. Non-Sinitic languages spoken widely by ethnic minorities include Zhuang (Thai), Mongolian, Tibetan, Uyghur (Turkic), Hmong and Korean.[22]

and they are a constantly expanding powerhouse. the failure of nigeria as a state does not rest on any single tribe - greed, corruption, incompetence are not based on race/tribe - no matter how much some nairalanders want to beleive this.

the real truth is 90% of northerner have not got kobo not even N1 from this oil money and some uneducated people say we should not divide, because IBB and other need to use the money to buy private jet for themself and not the north,  why millions of northerners are suffering, Some Aso rock connected men less than 3% have access to the oil money.

And now say do not divided the country because of 3% of northerner, who are using the money to buy private jet. why 90% of northerner have never collected N1 kobo from the oil money.

Dn't be shocked, , I bet you stayed in the North for long time, but to ask you one question, how many people in the North are having good time in their houses, even if you are rich in the North, you have sleepless nights because anytime your house can be broken by robbers, not to even take away your money but your life, What shocks me is that most of these robbers Wallahi are not Northerners, they are mostly Igbos,

It is hard basically to convince the Northerners 4 division because everyone now is interested in politics because of the oil Money, the revenue, that is why I am backing resource control, it will make us re-think that this oil money is not our own, and it will not last like that, maybe that will make them re-think again,

Idan baka sani ba, ko nima din banga amfanin sarakunan mu na yanzu ba, they're useless at this time, because they are spoilt by politicians, recently Governor shekarau distributed hundreds of new expensive cars to the traditional rulers when they're basically doing nothing, You see we need to learn how to utilize money,

Muza, i reject what you said in jesus name.

auwal87 , i am shock that you are really hausa,  i use to think you are one of the wobowobo people. who pretend to be hausa,  i am shock , really really shock,  walahi.

Yaya yara, sushi over here they kill me. it has become cool walahi alhaji. may be another extra mata. will be the right medicine. and oga yar adua done give all of his yara to people finish. walahi, did you see the one that marry kebbi governor. wayo Allah.

You made me remember one of my friend called abu , while on national service, walahi this is not a joke, abu was my troop leader, he made a remarkable statement that i would never forget. He said if he is able to overthrow the govt that the first thing he was going to do was to line up the emirs and kill all of them and he would break up nigeria.

A statement like that coming from a northerner at that time shock me.  And at that time , i was only thinking only southerner wanted the country to break up.  People in the south sometime do not believe that the same poverty that they have is what the north have. that bad leadership. I tell people. If you do not believe if go and check , the north have ruled nigeria for over 40 years and Ghana with no oil, their people live better than us,

They have electricity 24 hrs in Ghana,  alot of africa live better than us. That why i have always felt either yoruba people have oil or we don't have let just get of of this thing call nigeria. Germany, Japan and other develop countries do not have oil for God sake, they are all doing better,   Look go to the niger delta after more than 1 trillion naira from derivation is the niger delta better than before. Answer NO, 

Balewa made more contribution to the life of the people of the north without oil than all this people with oil. At least Ghana have 24 hrs electricity.

It is happiness that matter not oil money, love built a nation to develop and not money. The north may not have oil, if they love they would develop walahi.

We are one of the most successful ethnic groups in Nigeria our main competition na Yoruba ppl only and oil is not what we have been benefiting from. Oil is simply a curse. Until ND ppl learn to make decisions without thinking about oil they wil continue to be rubbished.

Instead of talking about what should have been but never was and how the landscape would have resulted differently had events not occurred in certain direction. . . we should instead be concerned about what "is" and how we can shape the terrain we have "now" for a desired outcome.

To all of you advocating war, Biafra is not your war, it was your father's and grandfather's war. At the end of it they all made corrections that were necessary for them to rehabilitate and move on. Chief Emeka Odumegu Ojukwu is prime example of that. You must not forget the history of it and the sacrifice that your parents and grandparents made. Nonetheless, you are not equipped today with the spirit and fortitude needed to fight a war on that scale. Your survival skills and intuition as well as wisdom demanded of a warrior is not inbred in you. You have a different class of skills than they had and none of your skills closely resemble that of a warrior, so you need to stop the rhetoric of war, war, war. If a war was started today you will loose again as happened in the 60s, so please stop the war cry.

On the question of wether Nigeria should be divided or not. . . well, on what grounds sould it be divided and on what grounds should it be retained? I agree that Nigeria should be divided but I disagree that the division must be done in broad scale violence. There are many ways through which the dissolution could occur with zero or minimal bloodshed. Going into war does not isolate us from the rest of the world. The Igbos have a different grievance than say the Deltans have. That difference alone becomes a vulnerable point that will be exploited to make a second Biafran far more disastrous that the first one. Igbos have always maintained and still do till today that their carve out of Nigeia give them a self-sustaining control over the oil resources that will end up in their new found country - Republic of Biafra.

There are various interest groups that will instantly be willing to strike partnership with the East. Big among them is Blackwater. Eric Prince started this company as a training facility and evolved into mercenary and again evolved into security/private intelligence entity, then into emergency rescue mission and is now lobbying UN to serve in peace missions while simultaneously lobbying congress to recognize it as an extension of the military and give it a classification under Pentagon. During the escalation with MEND, the Oil Corporations and the expatriate groups received a proposal from Blackwater outlining arrangements to take the fight to MEND in the swampgroves. As we speak, there is talk of deals to deploy Blackwater personnell on ships to fight pirates in the Horn of Africa. To show you what interest areas Blackwater is actively shadowing for gain opportunities, take a look at their website in the link below. Anwhere on the globe there is political tension they are on it.

http://www.blackwaterusa.com/btw2006/archive/060506btw.html

What does this mean for us? This means if we start a war, it will not be just our war, Blackwater will show up. They will show up in alliance with the party that has control over this oil we are fighting over. They will aid the Igbos to fight and defeat Nigeria. But it doesn't end there. They know about the region and before they pack up and leave they will aid the Deltans to defeat the Igbos. They will then go into treaty agreements with the Deltans in a way that the Deltans become the sole ethnic group with control over the oil and Blackwater as its security and intelligence army. I know some of you will start to ask for me for a statistical data to prove this as accurate. Anything that has not yet taken place does not have accurate statistical data. You can create a model of forecas for proactive policies but that's all it is - a possibility of occurrence. Well, take my opinion here as just that - given what has happened so far in Blackwater activities around the globe, this is a possibility of occurrence if they smell that we are about to spill each other blood.

War is not the answer forus to dissolve Nigeria. Let's discuss other opportunities that are equally as effective.

ikey you said it is not possible to break up nigeria, let me give an example  how it mayy happen and the north can not do anything about it and it would be a success. since they have move the capital from lagos, 

what the military boys would do is look at this map,  they would station military men across the river niger and benue,  and anything that cross either on air or from the sea they would shoot. down. there are equipment they can buy that can see oncoming plane from kilomemeter. give us the time to shoot down the plane,  we can see the uncoming plane. we would tell the military the position, and they would shoot down the plane,

we would be able to know where their army is coming from,  we would see ground.  and have plane bomb upcoming plane. we can station warhead pointing to abuja a, kano  and kaduna,  if they try to attach us. we can kill everybody living in abuja, kaduna, kano.  in about 10 minutes .

What we do for them to know we are serious is that we use the warhead somewhere to show them we have sure equipment.

The north can not do anything. i have the location of all barrack in nigeria. look my friend if the south want to go. Noone,  can stop them,  the mistake the north did was to move the capital from lagos, 

And I know it would happen in future and less than 100 people would die,  you take over all barrack in the south and send the soja to station on the river and benue. but lighthouse around the river and radial watching them,

The US can do that within 24 hrs,  with 35,000 men,

A submarine on the sea off the coast of nigeria. Main target Enugu, markudi, lagos , ilorin,  and kainji,  jalingo,

10,000 office to capture lagos,  5000 to ibadan , 5,000 to other each,  ,  capture enugu move quickly officers 3,000 office toward taraba,     and move 3000 officer from ibadan to jebba and other river bank. Get the southern officers of about 40,000 to join in the banks of the river niger and benue,

  it would take 5 hours to capture all barrack and about 18 hrs to move all 40,000 southerner office,

end of break up, 

position radar around the river niger and benue. Watch all north side of river benue and niger from satellite and radial,  Shoot down all plane and army attacked.

End ,  A new country is form.

Ikey do you still there is noone that can stop that attack

start time 12.01 am end time 6 .00 am

Ikey tell me how you can stop that military formation

Look on the issue of church in Nigeria. 419 churches are all over nigeria. People who claim to be pastors but it is 419. The church need to check itsself.  You discover different scam even among muslim and other religion. It point to the same story POVERTY in Nigeria. And people have to do anything to make ends meet.

POVERTY is high in africa,  While you find IBB and other Nigeria leader buying private jet. This is a man who have never had a normal job in his life,  And he walk around the country free,  And you expect people in Nigeria, when a thief is even claiming he want to be president. And you expect the south to want to remain in the same country,  Please,  The percentage of Northerner involve in government fraud in nigeria is 80% to southerner 20%. Their are very few southerner would have had opportunity to be involve in government. The government is run in Abuja ,  While you find out the govt of NIGERIA is not arresting this northerner criminal. And you expect southerner to believe in Nigeria. If Yar Adua can arrest IBB,  and lock in up in jail,  Then you know Yar Adua is in control. But I am sorry Yar Adua can not even visit the minna mansion without permit. Is that the nation , you want people to live in.

the northern leaders as well as southern,eastern,western e.t.c are all equally guilty of keeping their respective regions under developed,the north being under developed to that extent is because the corrupt politicians had a willing tool in the various imams who have brainwashed the children/youths who see almajiri as a religious calling rather than perpetual enslavement, we have our own religious enslavement in other parts of nigeria as well as can be seen in the child witches programme where an evangelist wakes up one day and writes a book asserting that a child who cries excessively in the night is a witch yet she has 150 churches all over nigeria mostly in the southern areas NOT THE NORTH, why else dyu think obasanjo proclaimed he was born again,same as all the other governors,ministers,business men/women e.t.c who occupy the front pews in church,

nigeria dividing would not solve our problem,all it ll do is widen the endemic decay living with us, the fact that you cut a spoilt and decaying meat into many pieces will not automatically remove the decay and dirt from the meat, rather what we need is a president that ll take a stance and step up to the plate and actually clean up the country, we cant have that however if we continue to do siddon look, like oshiomole said in his speech

as long as GODFATHERS ARE IN POWER,AND VTHE ELECTORATES VOTES DONT COUNT,THEN THE LEADERS WILL NEVER TAKE THE ELECTORATE SERIOUS BECAUSE THEY NEVER DID NEED THEIR VOTES TO GET INTO OFFICE IN THE RFIRST PLACE SO THEY OWE THEM NOTHING BUT OWE THE GODFATHERS EVERYTHING

You see , why are you calling governor , and governor and governor again. Or you also think Umaru Yar Adua is your problem. President Yar adua would NEVER solve the problem of Nigeria.  and even I say if Jesus was president of Nigeria, he go nearly give up. Oshimo, the new governor of edo would discovery, Why osunbor run back to his village without going to the supreme court. The man give up.

Look it is Nigeria that is the problem. On the north, you say they would not leave. Then they would be the great fool, if they do not want to,  Their story is like a blind man, like i said. if he discover he can see. Do you think he would want to remain blind. The north is blind. They would NEVER develop under Nigeria.

Look if Nigeria don paid them, why there hut all over the north even after they have ruled for 40 years steal the oil,   I tell you if they remain in Nigeria,  Even in 200 years,  they north would still be a beggar,  I would tell you if they refuses to go,  Ikey if you are still alive in 30 years. Please remember this word. that I say,  THAT THE FEDERAL GOVT WOULD BORROW MONEY FROM YORUBA STATE TO MAINTAIN the system. but if they leave. In five years God would transform the north.

i think what yoruba land need is some one that got the real political will and wisdow to actualise those structure u got on the pic as time goes on, c uz if u cant get someone transparent enough and have good accoutability, even in ur new oduduwa republic nothin will be actualised for real.

Thanks for the name calling, I am glad you knew about SNP in Scotland and ask yourself if SNP could have been in the same position in Nigeria? If there leaders would have been in prison charged with treason? The devolution of power to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland was done to stop the SNP and others like them ambition.

I don't mind you disagreeing with me but I want a counter arguement for continued existence of one Nigeria as it is today. I am sure in all your adult life you have never and will never vote for a man outside your tongue but the first to shout about one Nigeria.

One Nigeria exist only on paper but in reality it's non existence. So why pretend we are one when we are not. Those that sign one Nigeria in 1959 London conference, how many of them will sign it if what we have today in structure was on the table then? You have heard Ehnahoro who moved the motion for independent saying that Nigeria as he sees it now was a big mistake. Disgree with me but base it on reality check and not just abusing me and calling childish name because that is a common Nigerian trait, if you don't have a valid point, abuse the other person.

The silly argument had always been that Governors are corrupt now in Nigeria and they will be the same in separate countries, but they forgot that those ruling Nigeria now will never smell power if isolated with their own people. How many of them are governors because their people wanted them if not imposed on them by external forces, just like OBJ forced Andy Uba on Igbos when their choice is Ngige or Obi. I had always ask people with this argument,  if Obasanjo would have been president over Olu Falea in 1999 if the election was held in Oduduwa state? In the East, would the likes of Uba family ever come near the corridors of power if isolated with Igbo’s in Biafra over the like of Senator Ben Obi for example? In the north, will the likes of Yar Adua ha

I think u are very angry and will use any point to justify breaking up  Nigeria. First u talk of governors not been elected, the civilian governors are elected but of course in very few cases the votes are rigged to favor a losing candidate. ruling state governors who are not of the same party as the president sometimes rig elections. U have given just one case of a governor being imposed but forget the many that were not. If state contestants fight and rig elections y should they stop when it`s for the presidency. What about the corruption in the civil servant , the local government, the police, costomes and so on and so on. Were all these people imposed too.  U mentioned the time of the regions, that was not a break up. The centre was just not so powerfull as today. If u think states should have more powers and the centre not so strong, I am all for that. I think that will brink healthy competition and that can only be good for the whole country. I personal think the centre is too strong.

u are just looking for a scape goat to blame for the problems of Nigeria, Yoruba, Ibo, Efik, Edo, Kanure, Hausa etc, all of us are the problem. How will the break up stop corruption and embezzlement of government funds by officials?. Do u thing only Hausa leaders steal government money? Sorry to disappoint u, most black African leaders steal regardless of ethnicity. That is one of the main reasons Black Africa is underdeveloped.

We have had leaders. chief Obafemi Awolowo was a Yoruba leader, Chief Micheal Ajasi was one,   And even when britain  was in nigeria the Yoruba position in the 50's have not change. we want our own country.  Ikey I am speaking for 98% of the yorubas I minus the ones who decided they are bartard.

If they wake up chief Obafemi Awolowo or chief Ajasi to ask them this position. My answer would be thier answer.

If you find any yoruba leader that says the Yorubas do not want to leave Nigeria. That person is a thief  or as collected bribe or is reaping were he did not sow.

You see one of the word of God say an evil man want injustice to continue but a good want prevent injustice.   If it is put to vote with only Yorubas voting we all know what the result would be.

But if you now go and ask greed yorubas who live and sleep at the gate of Aso rock for contract the result would be different.   It is like you going to ask Jonathan what is the position of the Ijaw people,  You know he would claim the Ijaw love Nigeria. But I can boost for the Ijaw that 99% of ijaw people would vote Yes , they want to leave.

Do you know why Jonathan would say Ijaw love to stay,  Because of his personal interest. but I am telling you what the Yoruba people want. I have no person interest in this. You can't ask fashola, akala , gbenga etc to tell you what the Yoruba want because their personal interest would be their answer, not the decision of the majority.

We have $2 million each honestly.
