Some scholars have told Nigerians to avoid any situation that will lead to disintegration of the nation. They made the call at a conference organised by Marron Square and titled, ‘Identity Politics and the National Question in Nigeria.’ The special guest of the conference, provost, College of Education, Technical, Akoka, Lagos, Dr Azeez Ademola, said Nigerians irrespective of class, faith or ethnicity should not allow themselves to be overwhelmed by divisive interests seeking to cause disaffection across the country. In his paper, Dr Adagbo Onoja of the Veritas University, Abuja, said ethnic groups in Nigeria evolved through various stages, adding that what led to feelings of hate and prejudiced was the character of bad leadership that had largely been the lot of the country for a long time. Onoja said, “The monolithic binary is a power agenda that reduces Nigeria to a country of two opposing regional identities instead of equal identities.” A journalist and executive director, Journalists for Democratic Rights, Mr Adewale Adeoye, whose paper was titled, ‘The National Question, Ethnic Identity and Self Determination,’ said Nigeria needed to address the national problems instead of pretending that the problem does not exist. In his paper on ‘Interrogating the concept of Restructuring for Progress or Balkanisation to Retrogression Using Sudan and Yugoslavia as Case Study,’ Mr Kadishi Oliseh said that Nigeria should do everything possible to avoid disintegration

  1. This is the main problem that this our country is having.
    Our leaders instead of adresing the case, they like to pretend as if the case dosent exist.
    See that of reader of IPOB how they prospounded the date for judgement to october which they might do it again and it will cause war in the country. I surject that our leaders should wake up. Based on what the post said
