For those who regard Nigeria as a "nation". A nation simply means a large body of people united by common descent, or common value system like history, ideology, culture or language, inhabiting a particular country or territory. The case of Nigeria is biometrically opposite and entirely different from the above definition of a nation. She never falls in the same above category that makes up a nation, still gullible, myopic and criminally intended individuals and corrupt politicians refer to her as a nation. A nation emerges through an organic process not inorganic like Nigeria, which was built on lies, deceit and personal interest of the British government as a business centre. Any foundation built with such wicked intentions is designed to fail and must face arrant destruction.
The name Nigeria is pure British coinage, which has no literal meaning to the three nations that make up Nigeria. It is merely a British company known as Royal Niger Company that came before amalgamation in 1914 due to her natural endowment. Flora Shaw and Fredrick Lugard cleverly concocted and adopted the name Nigeria, they deceived the world and individuals in the contraption that the name "Nigeria" means Niger and Area that can fraudulently be translated as River line (Niger) and land (Area). The white businessmen known as Mungo Park and Lander brothers named the today's River Niger. The River is formerly known as Oriemiri Ogbaru before the invasion of the British.
Come to think of it, Nigeria has no founding fathers or group of people that gave British the right to create a country either verbally or by written agreement. Nigeria's existence is one hundred per cent illegal and monumental atrocity to humanity. Britain puts the three distinct nations together to form Nigeria, for their own selfish reasons and interest. Obafemi Awolowo publicly refers to Nigeria as mere geographical expression and that no one is Nigerian.
Nigeria has no founding fathers because in the year that the amalgamation took place those regarded as the founding fathers were under the age bracket of two years and ten years. Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe was born in 1904, Obafemi Awolowo was born in 1909, and Alhaji Tafewa Balewa was born in 1912 etc. The question now remains who and who signed the document that bonded Nigeria together?
The British said that Nigeria was made to exist for only one hundred years and then the three nations, which is Biafra, Arewa and Oduduwa can separate, but due to rapacious nature of British, Hausa-Fulani and Yoruba, they employed every possible means to keep Nigeria as one. In the history of the world, I have never seen where people with different ideology stayed together and succeeded. Yugoslavia that tried it was dismembered which gave birth to many countries like Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and finally Slovenia. Nigeria will not be an exception because out of the destruction of Nigeria Biafra will emerge.
Activities surrounding Nigeria today is just pointing towards one direction that Nigeria must break up. Nigeria as a man-made has stretched to her elastic limit, and the next action is the breaking point, which is sacrosanct and unavoidable. Currently, Nigeria is bleeding with shame and disgrace of the highest order before the eyes of the entire world. No amount of foreign intervention or political amendment can fix her because she must obey the law of nature, which is essential for all human creations.
A lot of individuals, organizations and groups have predicted Nigeria break up. Examples are, between 1967 and 1970 the people's general Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu said no power on earth can stop Biafra. In the 1970s the Afro music legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti said that when an average Nigerian can't afford three square meals a day, then you know that Nigeria is about to break. In 2015 when Muhammadu Buhari assumed office as a president, the American experts from C.I.A predicted that Nigeria will split in future. Even the International Monetary Fund (I.M.F.) said that Nigeria is heading towards an unredeemable recession. Harvard University used Nigeria as a case study of a failed African country in April 2018. T.B Joshua made similar utterance in 2017 and the supreme leader of I.P.O.B., Mazi Nnamdi Kanu said it on Radio Biafra in 2014 and still saying it that Nigeria can never escape break up because it is a divine mandate no man or spirit can prevent the inevitable break up.
These shenanigans as mentioned above are the indications that Nigeria still making it as a country is a mirage because a lot of more irregularities will soon be on display
