House of reps received a proposal to change Nigeria
House of reps received a proposal to change Nigeria: The proposal suggests the United African Republic or the United Alkebulan Republic as Nigeria’s new name.
Mr Adeleye jokotoye, tax consultant submitted the proposal of changing the name to the South West Zonal commitee for a Public Hearing in Lagos on Wednesday, June 2, 2021.
He said Nigeria’s current name was an imposition of its past colonial masters and should be changed, immediately if possible.
At this point changing the name will reflect to our past and mark new begining, he stated earlier.
And why he chose United African Republic, Jokotoye said Nigeria is made up of hundreds of ethnic groups that need to come together and be united as one.
As alternative, also he said that Nigeria could also choose United Alkebulan Republic (meaning: United Mother of Mankind Republic) if so chosed.
As earlier stated the tax consultant also suggested amendments to the constitution to reflect fiscal federalism, state or regional resource and taxation control, removal of immunity clause, and also review of the Exclusive Legislative List.
