The country Nigeria at the moment is faced with so many challenges that seem to be overwhelming its citizens. The escalating rate of insecurity that is been heard of and witnessed by the people in different regions of the country has increased the pain the masses feel in the country. Coupled with pangs of insecurity is the rising call for secession by some regions of the country, the call for Biafra and Oduduwa Republic. Insecurity in the country and its perceived nepotic approach in handling it by the leaders of this nation have equally fueled the call for secession.
DJ Switch speaking on the division in the country and the pain people experience as citizens of this country made her stand known on the unity of the country. In a post on her official Twitter handle, she revealed that her stand has never been for the country to divide as she has never been tribalistic in nature neither is she an extremist but that notwithstanding, she lamented on the pain and divisiveness in the country saying it justifies the call for secession in the country. She also talked about the insecurity in the country saying it will get to all. In her words, she wrote
"I have never been a tribalist and I detest all forms of extremism! There's so much pain and divisiveness that it seems justifiable to call for secession, but this is not my stand! The insecurity in Naija will reach us all. The rulers keep the masses uneducated and hungry so we won't have sense!"
While some people are in support of one united nation, Nigeria, it seems many in recent times has toed the part of the separation of the country. Everyone has his good explanation on whichever he chooses to support. Like it is said in the above statement, the perceived unjust treatment meted out against some regions fuels the quest for secession the more and until such nepotism is addressed, the agitation will be on the rise.
