How about "Demonym: Omo Odua", "Currency: Owo Eyo", "Religion/Constitution: Ifa" and including Isejiri as one of the states, and including programmes to eventually bring together all other Omo Odua in Benin, Togo and Ghana under the same roof as a confederation?

The quest for Oduduwa Republic is likened to a middle man out of Three People who bought three plots of Land parallel to each other but made no attempt to fence his own plot.

It was then observed that Oduduwa went and bought magnificent Gate waiting for Biafra to fence his plot on the right and Arewa to fence her plot on the left as to enable her install the magnificent gate - what a "wisdom".

The moral lesson is that Oduduwa strives when her neighbours are enemies and will never attempt self determination by her own struggle.

In summary, until Biafra secedes there will be no Oduduwa - Fact

@OP.

The SW does not need "Oduduwa republic" in this day and age and it may be separatists, consumed with atavistic instincts, who glorify the idea "Yoruba greatness" must be achieved at the expense of geographical separation from others. Those who just want the SW and all regions to thrive, and this would include most of the current crop of the intelligentsia in Yorubaland, know that every region only needs a few changes to aid the self-determination that will see us all develop optimally and commensurate with the efforts we are willing to put in to defeat socio-economic/developmental challenges.

We do not need a new nation to make the SW a developed region. We only need a few changes at the centre and I believe these changes will be seen if the PDP is defeated. For those who can shun emotion, and note facts and reality, it is obvious the SW is certainly one region that shows it is devoted to creating societies committed to the best interest of the majority and not a wealthy elite class alone. I stand to be corrected but it is only States in the SW that have introduced social pensions for the vulnerable elders in Nigeria. The mass employment scheme in the region is also indicative that a people-centred leadership is present in the SW. The commitment to socio-economic integration is also commendable. In short, the SW is on the right path and does not need to travel the circumference of a circle to get from A to B, as others want to do, when it can use the radius as a much quicker travel path.

Hiding behind words and saying the same thing.

"Oduduwa Republic" is invariably proportional to "Geographical Separation"

Right people? what do you mean by right people?

the truth is this:
No government can perform unless they are accepted and supported by the people they lead.
Tell me the Nigerian that will be accepted by the South South, South East, South West, North Central, North East and North West. the day we have such a Nigerian, is the day we are ready for some progress!

The above postulation is a very simplistic and illusionary ideal. Nigeria will never see growth and development beyond concrete and corrugated iron sheets as long as it remains as presently constituted. Nigeria can not ward off external aggression without going down by internal implosion.

"Acceptance" is overrated. If the right leaders are elected, they will initiate the reforms and bold changes needed that gradualists, from every single ethnic group, will avoid when elected into positions they do not have the ability to use in moving the nation forward. How is "acceptance" connected with leaders fully empowered to deliver changes, one after the other, blatantly rejecting the required course of action that can move all of us forward? What acceptance is GEJ looking for that prevents him from being the leader championing the cause of State policing? Does GEJ need the acceptance of every ethnic group in Nigeria before he directs that we stop selling our crude through traders, as Ribadu suggested, so as to destroy theft against Nigeria?

Dude, you don't have to just unquestioningly embrace what has been sold to you as the "only solution" and then rigidly sticking to this in the face of evidence that shows you are misguided. Look at the truth of matters to note you have been scammed. Begin to look at even your own leaders and elders with honesty. Are they sincere? How many real leaders today, even those from your very household, do you see agitating for separation when they become part of the "power order"? How come Okonjo-Iweala, Anyim et al are not making the same noise you disturb us with on this forum daily? Even you will sing a different tune tomorrow if made a Senator.

I just think we should focus on the centre delivering changes that mean all of us can develop our States and region optimally instead of vacuously insisting others "hold us back" when we are the ones most responsible for holding ourselves back. It is like Africans lampooning the West while ignoring their own wicked and inhuman leaders who get a lot and give them nothing in return. The NDDC, headed by Niger Deltans, is one big house of scam and treachery against the Niger Delta. What then is the point for a Niger Deltan to think he would fare better under the same merciless looter in an independent Nation? what is the point of the Niger Deltan going around shouting that the Yoruba and Hausa man are his biggest problem when his own blood brother is mercilessly and directly stabbing him in the back?
Re: Country: Oduduwa Republic by amakenny: 1:17pm On Jun 27, 2013
The best thing to happen to a country is homogenous population, common language and culture - take aside religion, because religion only plays a role when there is ethnic diversity in a country. Oduduwa Republic may be a beautiful country to behold in Africa, but can the Yoruba go for it? Or not, until oil finishes in the old eastern region?
Re: Country: Oduduwa Republic by amor4ce(m): 1:29pm On Jun 27, 2013
@Gbawe, an omo ale uses his left hand to point at (show the way) to his father's house. Only a thoroughly brainwashed house negro or negropean would accept and promote and seek to preserve the very savage works of the oyinbo (including the Berlin Conference, murder and enslavement of millions during the trans-Atlantic, trans-Saharan and oriental slavery). It is only an omo ale that will sell his inheritance and father's property and welcome others to claim it without his father's consent. It is only an omo ale that will despise, belittle and refer to his ancestors as primitive and condescendingly refer to his people as "atavistic" for loving and respecting their ancestors.The Berlin Conference was evil and has been used till date to divide non-nomadic black Africans. Perhaps you are a pro-oyinbo halfcaste, or been bleaching your soul, or your soul is actually oyinbo, perhaps not, hopefully not. This attitude of condscension and disregard for indigenous heritage shows up cosistently in your posts.Shame on you.
