Gideon Okeke has spoken the minds of many people. The actor took to his Instagram yesterday to remind the Federal Government that the only way Nigeria would be able to conquer the ills of tribalism is if we do we away with the idea that people must always append or identify themselves by the states they ‘originated’ from.

He continued:

Quote
One Nigeria ! One Nigeria !!
But We’re not quite willing to let go of the coattails of TRIBALISM.

Even AD commercials/Radio Jingles are culpable of passing subliminal messages that are nuanced in ways that make one wonder if there are :

– 3 Nigerias or
– 187 Others or
– Just 1 Nigeria.

If You still regard your neighbor with these derrogatives :

– Omo-Ibo ,
– Ofemmanu,
– Nyammiri…

You might be RACIST. Or sold to BIGOTRY.

There’s a thing or two to learn from a small country called RWANDA.

Imagine a policeman stopping you for routine checks and he pops the question :
” What State are you from”…

Oga !! What purpose does that question really serve?

AS LONG AS THE FOLLOWING CONTINUE TO ECHO IN EARS OF PEOPLE IN NIGERIA: 
- 3 MAJOR TRIBES
- 3 MAJOR ETHNIC GROUPS OF NIGERIA
- 3 MAJOR LANGUAGES IN NIGERIA
- 3 MAJOR LANGUAGE BROADCASTS ON NATIONAL TV THE REST ARE IRRELEVANT
- 3 MAJOR LANGUAGE RADIO ANNOUNCEMENTS AT THE AIRPORT, LAND BOARDERS AND SEA BOARDERS
   THEN, NIIS NOT ONE NATION.  BUT DIVIDED NATIONS.
  THERE IS NO BETTER WAY TO DESCRIBE MARGINALISATION, SEGREGATION, TRIBALISM, OPPRESSION AND INTERNAL RACISM.
 OUT OF MORE THAN 200 TRIBES IN NIGERIA 3 OF THEM ARE DOMINATING THE REST IN OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS.
   NIGERIA IS ONLY ONE IN PAPER. IN REALITY THE PEOPLE IN NIGERIA KNOW THEY ARE NOT ONE.  NOTHING WILL CHANGE THIS.
