One Nigeria?

Is Nigeria truly ONE and why?

Thanks to two of my facebook friends for their answers. We should meet up for hugs, aka the award ceremony soon?

Tricia thinks NOT. According to her, our ignorance and the tribalistic views we hold have kept us from uniting.

Segun thinks "not yet." According to him, "Nigeria is a 'colonial container' with diverse but great contents whose harmony depends on the knowledge and understanding [that] Hunger, sorrow, poverty, joy, laughter, have no language or colour."

I live under the illusion that Nigeria is one because I fear civil war. If young musicians use multiple Nigerian languages, isn't that proof of our one-ness?

NEWSBUKA for all the burning topics in Nigerian politics and society.
