Will the separation of Southerners from the Northerners end Nigeria's intercommunal crises?

Hi friends.many people are of the opinion that southern residents in the North should come back.This might be a clear indication that the supposed amalgamation of the North and south is nothing but a fruitless effort.With all these evidence,one can rightly point out that there will soon be a disassociation of the north and the south in no time.some of these misunderstanding can be traced to some religious and and communal clashes.My opinion is that even if the southerners to their homes,there is the tendency similar crises occurring within their regional hemisphere as is currently witnessed in some communities which am afraid to mention....What do you think??

Religious crisis has become a regular
occurrence in the Northern part of Nigeria.
Crisis of this nature usually spread to other
Northern states and might have a spill over
effect to some southern states. We have
seen some reprisal attacks before in some
south eastern and south western states. Be
that as it may, the spread of this crisis to
other Northern states did reveal the
strength and network of this group.
However, since religious crisis has become a
common feature in the Northern Nigeria, the
question is where next and how many
innocent Nigerians will die?
These menaces (religious crises) have
become a very big embarrassment to
Nigeria and her citizens. In November 2002,
riots from some Moslem youths that were
opposed to Miss World contest in Abuja led
to its cancellation and subsequent relocation
of the show to London. About 100 people
lost their lives in that incident. Ironically, a
lady from Turkey (a Moslem country) won
the contest in London. All these religious
disturbances run contrary to all “efforts” of
the federal government to boost tourism.
The talk of attracting foreign investors in the
face of regular religious mayhem might be a
total waste of energy and resources.
Local investors are even tired of the
instabilities in the Northern Nigeria. I know
a number of Ibo business people that have
relocated completely to the Owerri, Onitsha,
Aba, Lagos etc due to these riots. Many have
completely lost their means of livelihood.
Remember a single religious crisis will have
a negative multiplier effects on other sectors
of the economy. Some people might become
armed robbers when their means of
livelihoods are destroyed. Many innocent
non-Moslems pay costly prices for these
religious crises. My simple advice is that
people should relocate their businesses
outside these volatile northern states. That is
the only way to guarantee safety. Prevention
is better than cure. Let us go..... Northerners should b left alone... we must fight back..... Ibos come back home we are endowed.

Ezenwa, how do you think that this will be possible? Leaving the north by the southerners is not possible because those southerners that base in north can't re-allocate just like that, the only thing that we have to do is to pray for peace in our country, issue of southerners re-allocating to south and northerners to north is not an idea. We are interdependent we can never leave in isolation, doing that will not end the crisis.

To a very reasonable extent, yes.  If all there will be crisis, it will no longer be religious in nature and it will be within a manageable limit.

if it happens, that means we will be going back to when Nigeria wasn't called Nigeria-without a collective name and standing together. Then, the Yoruba's, Hausa's and the Igbo's were separated doing their own thing. But i think coming together is becoming a problem for some people. I wouldn't love it if that happens. One shall destroy a thousand  while Nigeria will destroy more than a thousand of our enemies.  WE ALL NEED EACH OTHER IN THIS COUNTRY WHETHER BLACK, FAIR, SHORT, TALL, CHRISTIANE, MUSLIM etc

Sudan used to be one country but last year they separated so that peace can reign.  If staying together will continue to cause problem, killings and disaffection between the North and the South, it is better we go our separate ways.  After all, some countries in Africa are up one ethnic group in Nigeria.

i guess the best option is to disengage the south from all northern inconviniences though not a sure way to achieving success in maintaining  peace and cohensives in the country bot to douse the pandemonium rocking the country to and fro
