A legal practitioner and Human Right Activist, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), has said that Nigeria is divisible and dissolvable to prevent war.
Besides, Ozekhome averred that this is possible because the amalgamation of the Country’s ethnic groups was not on agreed terms from the foundation.
Ozekhome stated this during the second edition of the Ladi Adebutu Good Governance Symposium held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta recently.
Chief Ozekhome also said that Norway and Sweden were formally one Nation but they went different ways in June 1905.
The Human Right Activist, who was also the lead speaker at the occasion, argued that Ethiopia and Eritrea, Sudan and Southern Sudan; Southern Rhodesia-Zimbabwe; Northern Rhodesia-Zambia and India and Bangladesh, were also formerly a united people but when disputes arose, they parted ways and were now peaceful independent nations.
He added that Ghana rejected the name Gold Coast and maintained their own identity, Dahomey also changed to Benin Republic, but Nigeria wanted to remain Nigeria under unfavourable conditions and belief that the country is indivisible.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria, who said he was not opposed to a united Nigeria argued that such unity must be under an agreed terms, saying such would only guarantee people’s dreams.
