Nigeria May split before 2023; Onaiyekan.



Former catholic arch bishop of Abuja Diocese, Cardinal John Onaiyekan has said Nigeria might split before 2023.

Talking to Saturday punch, he said there’s no reason why the spate of insecurity should continue like this till 2023 and that we are not even sure if we will be one or Nigeria would be an independent country.

He said;

“There is no reason why the spate of insecurity should continue like this till 2023. There is no reason why we should not be able to finally settle this problem before the year 2022 is over.

“If it is not over, it means we have failed as a nation and the question will no longer be whether we can have election or not, but whether it makes sense even having an election because we don’t have a country; the matter is serious.

“As for the election, we are not even sure whether Nigeria will be one country or whether we would have an independent country. So, those are issues we must face now. As for holding election, it is not a big deal really. Election is a normal practice and in a democratic environment, if the environment is really democratic and peaceful, the election will come by its own.

“All of it; greed, wickedness and stupidity. Not only in Nigeria; go abroad, our next door neighbour, Cameroon, Paul Biya has been there for more than 30 years. Cameroon is not moving and he is not moving, why is he sitting there? So, they are worse than us.’’
