Why We Should Change Nigeria To UAR (United African Republic) by Canih28: 12:20pm On Jun 04
1) Countries that have acronyms beginning with U are bad bitches
Most of the countries with acronyms starting with U are usually in control of some sort of world power. Look at USA, UK and UAE. Emulating the good processes they went through to get their countries to be so powerful is stressful and will take time.
So, just change the name and begin to manifest

2) At our old age, we are still bearing the name a white woman gave us
Nigeria is going to mark 61 years of independence in 2021, but we are still bearing the name a white woman gave us? O wrong nau. We need to really prove “we was Kings”, so a new name is in order.

3) A chance to boost creative spirit
With this new name, a lot of new slangs will need to be created. Naija can no longer exist, so maybe UARija. Either way, it will give Nigerians UARians a chance to come up with some new slang. That might keep us busy for another three to four years so we don’t notice how the country is not progressing.

4) We are a very united country
How else can we prove that we are a county founded on Unity without adding United to the country’s name. So what if we had a civil war and people are being kidnapped and ethnic cleansing is going on. If United is in the name of the country, then it has to be true.

5) UAR does not sound like Nigger Area
Now, when they start dragging UARians online, they can’t say our name sounds like Nigger Area. They can only use our lack of electricity and infrastructure as an insult.

6) We have tried everything to fix this country, a new name might help
Nigeria has tried everything possible to move forward. Instead, now we have one dollar going for about five hundred naira at the black market. Since our leaders cannot be bothered to do anything serious like actually do their jobs, maybe a new name will help. All debts are forgotten, old things have passed away and we have become new.

7) We are the African giant
How do we cement ourselves as the African giant? Is it through a thriving economy? A safe country for its citizens? A place that allows ease of trade? OF COURSE NOT!!! We call ourselves the United African Republic.

There's no single thing fulanis do for the benefit of the indigenous people of Nigeria. The real aim of the new proposed name is to mask the many fulanis that have entered Nigeria of recent. With this name, they can't be regarded as foreigners anymore. This is the exact reason for the UAR name. Any other reason they give is just to cover up t○heir intentions. Ask yourself why they don't about how to stop the massacre of the various middle belt tribes? It is not debated in the senate?
Don't be misled by them. Let us insist on the division of Nigeria. Thereafter, they arewa can change their name to UAR.

If they like they should change the name to USA( united state of africa)

Once the mindset of the people(both leaders and followers) does not change positively, nothing is going to improve the situation of the country and her citizens.

Na change of name even reach now, upon all the challenges facing us

Mtshewwwwwww!

I hate nonsense!
This is nonsense!

Changing a name wouldn't change the characteristics of the subject or object matter.
Nigeria's problem is in it's leadership type and policy structure not in the name.

Whoever brought this useless suggestions is very dumb! I'm not sorry to say.

Changing Nigeria's name is like changing Boko haram to ISWAP or PDP to APC. Without restructuring or outright disintegration, nothing can get it right again in this country. It's too late already!
