The news about Benin republic offering themselves to become part or the 37th state of Nigeria is no longer new. The proposal from Benin to be part of Nigeria is not a problem as everything can be done easily with just the agreement of the two countries.

Nigeria might happily want them but the problem is Nigeria is currently facing some crisis at the moment. Nigeria has not yet balanced it's equation of tribal differences causing conflict. This is not time for adding more people to the country but the time to resolve the problems we are facing with the people in the country.

Succeeding Benin republic into the federal republic of Nigeria will of course be of good importance and can be beneficial in some ways like expanding the western territory and making our landmass above a million kilometer square, the use of the port in Porto Novo even if its small and so on.

On the other hand Nigeria will also have to face more responsibilities as Benin republic is one of the poor countries in the world and classified as lower middle income countries. As we can see the country relies on the activities of trade with Nigeria, also the reason for their proposal to willingly give the region to Nigeria is because they know they would benefit more being a Nigeria territory than being on theirs.

Right now the southeast with it militia ESN and IPOB are threatening to divide the country, the fulani herdsmen are causing harms to farmers and other people chasing herdsmen. All these are things the government should try to settle or balance first cause they are more important that talking about relationships with Benin republic.

We need to first solve the issue we have here with our citizens before adding more. Benin is said to be a peaceful country but there's also an high rate of muggings and robbery which means there will be more responsibilities to Nigeria, also sharing of allocations and balancing the economy. There is so many work to be done now and in my opinion the proposal of Benin republic came at the wrong time and therefore should not be positively considered by the Nigerian government.

As a citizen what's your own opinion about the offer from Benin Republic to be part of Nigeria? Like and follow for more.
