For Southerners Only: Why Can't The South Unite And Move Out Of Nigeria? by Naijabad: 1:16pm On Feb 20
Why can't the south unite and move out of Nigeria?

Why is it so difficult?

We can choose whatever name to call the emerging country.

Please what's your opinion on this?

God Separated the South with River Niger for a good reason

We Southerners have different political and cultural views

Ibos and Yoruba intermarriage is still not popular

Ibo Politicians and Yoruba Politician don't vote along same line, Senator Abaribe and Senator Remi Tinubu never agrees so how exactly can they move a motion on Referendum

Ordinary Lagos Special Status bill which seeks to increase funding for Lagos and make it a special state like FCT every Ibo Senator said NO even when most have houses in Lagos

We think differently from the north but we don't think alike.
Southern unity is dream that will never become a reality. We have more than 10 different countries in the south.

We would be like Mali, Chad, Niger, Sudan and Northern Nigeria,
That is the fate of the south, and like a people in a trance, we would follow them into the pit of hell because we can't take responsibility

It’s difficult because Yorubas and Igbo have different cultures and their orientations are different as well. I promise you, the ethnic war will start between Yorubas and Igbo. Yorubas don’t like to be controlled and dominated but Igbos desire control and domination. Yorubas are successful multi religious society where in every Yoruba family there is Christians, muslims and traditionalists without pretence. In contrast, Igbos pretend to be christians than romans that’s why they cry foul of norther religion domination. In Yorubaland, it’s not an issue because that christian/muslim wealthy leader will accommodate all faiths as long they belong to the family.

Every region in the South, doesn’t like Igbos tendency to dominate and the push back is a public knowledge even in the South-South. Yorubas like to be their own boss and the hatred of the Yorubas by Igbos have created a wound or division that a little disagreement will cause war/deportation. The Yorubas feel they have a huge advantage to be a nation of their own, their diversity, education, hospitality and proximity of the Southwest to other West African border countries, water/ Atlantic is so enticing to every Nigeria and even foreign investors. Lastly, Lagos is the Carlifonia/Texas of Southwest nation. It can only get better with Lagos that other western states can make huge revenue from Lagos alone. We have farmlands, seas, rivers, Rail system that can be extend to other states, massive natural resources, massive refinery in Lekki, over 45 million population, gold in Osun, cement in Ogun and Oyo, Bitumen and Cocoa in Ekiti and Ondo. We can feed the whole nation and West African countries. Less I forget, Education.

When the Eastern Nigeria joined the Nigerian union,they never sought Yoruba’s cooperation before joining,why should they need our support to exit Nigeria.

Every nation in Nigeria will exit Nigeria on their own terms as different nations based on their goals,aspirations and reasons for the exit.What applies to A might not apply to B.

This is a very good idea. We can start from there and if it didn't work out, then we go out separate ways. I think it's worth a try. I see gold where others see stone

what are u all arguing about ? If we must have a southern Nigeria then it has to be in a federation unit system in that every state will be independent and pay tax to the federal govt ..It could be like the United Kingdom, where every state or region will have to manage thier own affairs independently, then pay tax to the federal govt ..We could run a parliamentary system of govt instead of the presidential system .We must all look at the positive side over the negative things that devide us.But before we become a nation, there must be a road map by our intelligent mind across the south on how to build a new southern Nigeria that is devoid of ethic& religious prejudice that that is presently destroying Nigeria .
Measures must place to reduce these evil factors . Finally, a referendum clause must be included in our constitution to provide freedom for any ethnic national that want out of the union in the future . By doing that ,it will mean that every ethnic group is part of southern Nigeria without duress .
We need to a way out if this hell we call a large country .
I would rather live in a smaller secured south Nigeria than in an unsecured bigger Nigeria where nepotism and ethics hatred strive .

I don't know why everything about you people is all about Igbos. When the easterners wanted an East development project how many Yorubas voted for it? You always leave the North that has been controlling this country and be attacking Igbos tht last produced a president more than 50 years ago. Are you people not brave enough to face the Fulani that has always held you down and called you slaves or it's only on the Igbos you can bark like a lion? undecided

There are four countries that make up the UK, England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. They all have ministers for each region, all have functioning seaports, international airports that connects to any country in the world and other major establishments in these regions. But in Nigeria why is it that one region in the south wants everything alone.

We can only unite if we agree on our territorial boundaries.

We can only agree if no tribe tries swallowing up another tribe.

We can only unite if all tribes respect the wishes of their neighbours

We can only unite if no tribe tries to rewrite another tribe's history

Without all these, the South will never unite

Because one region has it alone?! Seaport, Landport population , Oil, Entertainment industry, soon Largest refinery

Unity works in a Country with different ethnic Nationality if everyone has something to offer... Kindly tell me perhaps I can change my views exactly what SouthEast has to offer Southwest to take on such alliance

Is it Ports, Agriculture, or what
