All You Need To Know About Nigeria's Proposed Change Of Name To United African Republic

It's no longer news that our country Nigeria might in a matter of few months cease to bear the name Nigeria but United African Republic.

Many of her citizens has reacted to the latest developments in different ways. While some claimed the name United African Republic would go a long way in bringing sanity to the country, others claimed that the name United African Republic would be an entire waste of time.

Some of the citizens even went as far as dragging the Presidency into the matter, though the Presidency have reacted to their claims, making it clear that President Muhammad Buhari had nothing to do with the new proposed name from Nigeria into United African Republic.

Adeleye Jokotoye, a tax consultant, submitted the proposal to the committee at the South West Zonal Public Hearing in Lagos on Wednesday June 2, 2021.

According to PulseNG, he said, “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.”

Explaining why he chose United African Republic, Jokotoye said Nigeria is made up of hundreds of ethnic groups that need to be united. As an alternative, he suggested that Nigeria could also choose United Alkebulan Republic (meaning: United Mother of Mankind Republic) as its new name.
