An Open Appeal To All Tribal Bigots On Nairaland by lezz(m): 12:33pm On Sep 16, 2015
It is disheartening to watch on social-media when Nigerians resort to tribal slurs and cruel jibes at one another at the slightest of chance. Ironically most of the jeering participants are often decent fellows offline who have in their close circles as friends people of other ethnic groups.

Nigeria is a mere geographical expression of the British experiment , so opined a leading political figure. Perhaps it was so during the 1914 amalgamation. A casual look at the sociopolitical and economic evolution of Nigeria ever since will lead any honest observer to draw a very contrasting conclusion.

For the Igbos do bound her neighbours in the south south in Abia and Imo and delta states and there has been a cultural and economical entwinement in this region. The Igbos also bound the north/Middlebelt in Enugu,Benue and Kogi states.


The yorubas share a little ancestral linkage in delta and Edo states in the south south and are in an eternal sociopolitical blending with the north in kwara and Kogi states.

All of Nigeria seems to meet in some critical geographical junction which suggests there's a bit of ALL OF US in ALL OF US. There is therefore no clear cut geographical or cultural demarcation for secession or breakup.

Summarily, Nairaland has morphed into Africa's biggest online meeting hub with a very sizable number of foreigners both from Africa and beyond. Disappointingly, this is where Nigeria's most ignorant tribal bigots have chosen to launch their scathing and diversionary tribal slurs..... in front of the watching world.

It should be clear that Nigeria is beyond breaking into tiny irrelevant geographical entities. The civil war failed; June 12 failed and has boko haram .

The destiny of Nigeria -- the very premise by which it became is bigger than any single tribe.

While we berate each other and call one another names, the rest of Africa watches with patience, waiting for us to solve our own riddle and lead the entire black race to its true dignity.

The former United Nation's Secretary General, Kofi Annan in Abuja ,January in front of a world press made a daring declaration : " The destiny of Africa is in the hands of Nigeria".

It is a sad commentary that foreigners have more faith and hope in Nigeria than Nigerians. When little minded, shortsighted tribal bigots ,with no sense beyond the relevance of their tribe, dance in a show of tribal shame, the effects resonate around Africa and the black diaspora. For every tribal cruelty spawned online on the ocean of our national existence, the waves of its

aftereffects is felt in the depths of Africa.

The world is aware of our shortcomings in corruption, government inefficiency but their faith is bigger than our dismays. Because there has been progress -not because of the bigots but in spite of them.

Nigeria remains the only black Country with a fair chance of being a super power, but it will take a united and strong Nigeria to achieve this.

The sooner we shed the last vestige of secession, the faster we shall begin to practice true coexistence with the option of disintegration so far off in the distance of genuine brotherhood.

I beg to differ. Nigerian has been through the worst and has come out undone. All I see is silver lining and a hope of a giant whose birth was never a coincidence.

Tell me what can break Nigeria that hasn't happened yet failed?

Lol, you will start by identifying them with the correct spelling of their name.....

OK, the voice of a few cannot represent the majority. And there's is much more in secession than mere empty rhetoric of vagabonds who hide behind social media to scream Biafra.

I'm yet to see one igbo leader who has called for a secession without any political calculation to it. Nor have I seen any machinery both political and economical being wielded to achieve Biafra.

So much hate for a harmless post? Are you an inherent sadist or does evil reside in the corners of your soul eating your life away?

No where in my post did I state my region, neither am I a Biafran.

I'm just an ordinary Nigerian who sees beyond the smoke of tribal bigotry to the pinnacle of hope Nigeria will become.

No one is denying the state of Nigeria. But I looked around and I discovered that secession won't solve the problem one bit.

Seems to me your personal life has got more problems than Nigeria.

Your hate is so empty and cheap you're obviously choking in it. Do not use the word coward except in description of yourself. For hate is cheaper than optimism.
