Senator Adeyeye Calls For Nigeria's Disintegration
Senator Olusola Adeyeye has said it is wrong to say that Nigeria’s unity is not negotiable, adding that the country is not working the way it ought to.
Adeyeye who represent Osun Central noted this on Wednesday during a Public Lecture and Endowment Fund Launch in honor of Dr. B. G. K. Ajayi and Ibadan Medical School at 70, held at Paul Hendrickse Lecture Theatre, University College Hospital, Ibadan.
“Our republic creeks and moans from the gales that precariously dangle on the precipice of disintegration. For quite a few years, we have been under an undeclared civil war,” he said.
“The breakup of countries is nothing strange. It is arrant superstition to say the unity of Nigeria is non-negotiable. Examples abound in the world where unity became inimical to peace and progress and the citizen summoned the wisdom and courage to say enough is enough.
“Let no one deceive you. What we are seeing are the tell-tale signs of a failing nation and a failing nation ultimately lead to dismemberment. We can pretend it will not happen in the name of Jesus Christ or Allah. Problems are not solved because we ignore them.”
He gave examples of nations that broke up, saying Nigeria should consider her present state to know if it is worth staying at one.
According to him, “We cannot be in a big entity where we self-destruct one another. You need the freedom to use your God-given talent to be the best you can be.
History has shown that the stupendous leap in progress by India and Pakistan has not been limited to military technology and strength. They have made great progress in technology, healthcare, agriculture etc.
“If we were to attempt to have a national language, people will talk about Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba, the onus will be on us to adopt Itsekiri or Tiv so that arrogance of the major tribes will not be there.
“We don’t have to be afraid that as fellow human beings we can meet and agree that for us to have peace, we can go our separate ways.
“No president, king or emperor will make Nigeria work until we evolve a truly federal system. Nigerians rulers have ruled us with an overbearing centralism that has created so much inefficiency, chaos, and underdevelopment.”

aolawale025:Renegotiation can't change anything since the issue is mindset. Just observe the Igbos and the Yorubas attacking themselves in this forum, Christians and Muslims doing same, south and north doing same, how can u renegotiate to make these attacks go away?
Disintegration is d best option so that peace can reign.
