  3. This shows how the north has been raping the south with their military dictators. Originally it was northern region and the south was western region, eastern region and mid-western region so out of one the northern region we have 20 (including FCT) states and out of four southern regions we have only 17 – what a daylight robbery. Now you know what they mean by Python Dance because the python disables its victim before swallowing it. The south should wake up.

  4. If it would be possible, I wish Nigeria is divided into six country with each geopolitical zone, a country. I think that will end the killings and cheatings in Nigeria. Nigeria is called one Nigeria only in words and never In deeds. For how long shall we continue deceiving ourselves?.
