United African Republic: Nigerians react to proposed Nigeria name change

United African Republic: Nigerians on social media have trooped to various platforms to express their opinions on the proposed name change for Nigeria.

The proposal was reportedly submitted by Adeleye Jokotoye, a tax consultant on Wednesday, June 2, 2021.

While presenting the proposal, he said Nigeria’s current name was an imposition of its past colonial masters and should be changed.

He said a change of name for the country would physically and psychologically reflect a new beginning.

“At this crossroads in our history, it is mandatory that we change our name to reflect a new beginning which will be ushered in with a new constitution,” he said.

Reacting to the development, many Nigerians consider the move a bid to thwart the efforts of some groups across the country calling for secession of some parts.
