In the south western and amongst other ethnic groups in Nigeria, an adage simply put it: The name of a child has controls over the child.
The 1914, Lord Lugard almalgamation of different ethnic groups in a non civilized environment and literate people had created a great gulf in normal human relations, which no doubt, still hunting the spirit of oneness, amongst the groups. Nigger Area, i.e blacks area, was given by Lugard's mistress: Flora Shaw, as our name.
I dont see a name in this, which can give a spirit of oneness amongst a scattered people, without an army, legislature, solid house of commons and a well written self constitution. A nation is called: Great Britain, one is United States, another is United Arab Emirates and a group of nations is European Uninon. Honestly, we need a new name with the 3 miracle words; Great, United and/or Union. Nigger Area; Western slang, is an old title for a civilize people and it might be the demon fighting our conscience, spirit of oneness, behaviours and unity.
