Let's end the idea of Nigeria. Let's push our energy behind Biafra, energy behind Odua/Yoruba Nation. Nigeria has been dead out of the gates since days of our Fathers, for how long - this pipe dream?
There are traitors within both our communities Igbo and Yoruba (without lying to ourselves), they are the main impediment to our end goals, not even Fulani or anyone else - out of self serving and selfish interests. Our potentials are wasting away within Nigeria, yet our eyes are not yet open. The concepts of even PVCs in my opinion: Futile - just a repeat of the same old cycles. Bet you however much, we will be back round this circle again.
If you no tire - me ah don tire o.
