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
You know south east can send south west into darkenes by offing one switch ? Shay u don't know ?

justosee:

Southern unity is dream that will never become a reality.
We have more than 10 different countries in the south.

That's not true. Following your logic you can create 10 different countries from Delta State alone, 5 countries from Rivers and so on for virtually every state in the south.

As long as the south is culturally compatible with the same generally liberal and enlightened outlook to life, then that is sufficient. Other differences can easily be worked out, with strong systems to manage these differences and avoid the kind of ojoro that has made Nigeria fundamentally flawed.

It doesn't have to be a pseudo 'Federal Republic' as Nigeria currently is. It can be more of a confederal Republic, very weak centre and strong states... Resource control, etc. Tap from synergies while maintaining some space and co-independence. That's definitely very workable. As long as you get rid of the useless, parasitic and problematic core North, everything else can easily be sorted out.

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
I wonder oo!

I barely stated Tribes of region that haven't worked together without insult citing politics and cultural differences

I stated I listened to BBC Hausa and VOA and he called me Fulani slave in other threads, called me Fulani here.. same Ipob clowns ran lies daily during EndSARs claiming I earn 30k

So it's simple let that curse be theirs if it's an Ipob propaganda and a lie

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.
and because of all these points u have listed, that is the reason why yoruba prefer to remain in nigeria abi?

omoharry:
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 .

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

UNITE AND MOVE OUT.? SHAME ON YOU. AFTER ALL THE LOOTING THEY HAVE DONE TO NIGERIA? NA THEM GO RUN. NO ONE HAS NIGERIA MORE THAN THE OTHER. WE ONLY NEED TO ORGANIZE OURSELVES VERY WELL. WE KNOW THE FULANIS SECRET NOW. AND THEY WILL FAIL MISERABLY LIKE IDIOTS. WE KNOW THEY'RE MINING GOLD IN ZAMFARA AND DOING MANY OTHER THINGS SOMEWHERE ELSE IN THE NORTH. ONCE WE SETTLE THEIR WAHALA OF RIFA-RUGA ISLAMISATION AND FULANISATION AND ANARCHY PROBLEM, NIGERIA SHALL LAUNCH A TRUCE AND RECONCILIATION COMMISSION TO SETTLE FEDERAL FORTUNES EVERYWHERE INCLUDING THE RAILWAY TO MARADI. IT'S A FEDERAL AFFAIRS TO BE ACCOUNTED FOR.

They can't withstand the IGBOS so they need the coverage of their masters up north.

Nice thread. I like the recommendation made by a poster up there about UK comprising of four countries and yet each nation has its own prime minister. South Nigeria could be built on such framework. I think the UK presents the blue print.

We could run a parliamentary system. Strong institutions, accountability...etc.
