Nollywood actor, Gideon Okeke has opined that for national peace to reign in Nigeria, the government should abolish â€state of originâ€.
The talented actor said that having a state of origin celebrates tribal lines, borders, races and brings indifference amongst people.
He wrote; â€One Nigeria! One Nigeria !! But Weâ€™re not quite willing to let go of the coattails of TRIBALISM.
â€Even AD commercials/Radio Jingles are culpable of passing subliminal messages that are nuanced in ways that make one wonder if there are : 3 Nigerias or 187 Others or Just 1 Nigeria.
â€If You still regard your neighbour with these derrogatives: Omo-Ibo , Ofemmanu, Nyammiriâ€¦
â€You might be RACIST. Or sold to BIGOTRY. Thereâ€™s a thing or two to learn from a small country called RWANDA.
â€Imagine a policeman stopping you for routine checks and he pops the question: â€ What State are you fromâ€â€¦
â€Oga !! What purpose does that question really serve?
