The Eastern Region made up Ndigbo were not the only ones who wanted to secede as a country. The North and the West desired it but along the line creation of states was used to do that. If you look or remember, the regions were not entirely homogenous in tribes, ethnicity and religion but the creation was done to do this. So, if a region that used to be Gongola State in the North-Eastern region had the Tiv, Jukun, Idoma and other tribes, the creation of states of Taraba, Benue and other tribes helped to create homogeneity among them even though not entirely. So, Benue had more Tiv and Idoma while a state like Taraba has more Jukun and Tiv with other minority tribes that cannot have full states.
The tension in the land is so hot and suffocating because of the general elections coming up from next month. In case you are wondering why I’m specifically appealing to President Muhammadu Buhari and not to his main rival, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and the deluge of other aspirants, let me explain quickly. I’m a social media addict and through this, I’m able to gauge the mood in public domain. I have been active in politics since 1982. The first crazy election I witnessed was in 1983 when the ruling party, NPN, declared itself winner in several unlikely places. The result was fatally cataclysmic as people in those areas reacted spontaneously and violently. Some parts of Yorubaland went up in flames and human beings were roasted like barbecue meat. About three months later, the government of Alhaji Shehu Shagari collapsed like a pack of cards.
