Opinion: Why Nigeria Will Not Divide As Nnamdi Kanu And Sunday Igboho Are Thinking

Nigeria will not be easily divided as some individuals are thinking, it is true that some countries like USSR, Yugoslavia Czechoslovakia and others later got disintegrated and from their ashes emerged new republics such as Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Ukraine, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Litvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Moldova, Georgia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia, Crotia, Czech, Slovakia and many more countries, but Nigerian case is not like those countries because superpowers like Britain and America are benefiting heavily from the country and will hardly allow it to easily disintegrate but in the case of former USSR, United States of America was behind the disintegration of the country.

Nigerian military are still somehow united and receiving orders from one chain of command, owning to the facts that the defence architecture is dominated by sections of the country who strong believe in one united Nigeria.

The amalgamation documents that stated that after 100 years any indigenous people who are willing to part ways can, the 100 years has expired in 2014 and the country is still one indivisible entity.

The political elites from all parts of the country are still strongly believing in one united Nigeria, be it Yoruba, Igbo, Hausas and others because during swearing in as Governor or President, they will take two oaths which are oath of allegiance and oath of office, that oath of allegiance, means that he will always put the interest of Nigeria first before any other thing. secondly, those Politicians are also benefiting from Nigeria system and will never pray for its separation.
