By Okoi Obono-Obla
I am a through and through; indeed a dyed in wood Federalist! A Federalist believes in the Federal system of government. Nigeria federalism was introduced in 1951. It has survived for nearly 70 years, even though it has faced a lot of challenges.
Nigeria federation was founded on 14 January 1914 and has throttled on for 107 years despite numerous crises and challenges! It will survive ad infinitum by the Grace of God almighty.
I am a Nigerian Nationalist, a Pan-Africanist.
We shall overcome all the challenges confronting and grappling with Nigeria. Every country has its peculiar and unique challenges.
Good people should step forward and give Nigeria leadership at all levels.
