What Nigeria needs now is genuine political reform. Any right thinking man would see that the current Federation will sooner or later derail. The longer it takes to demise, the more the suffering for ordinary Nigerian citizen and on the other hand the more gainful to the self-styled politicians like the so called Yar Adua's kitchen cabinets members.
Nigeria can only survive and progress like a confederation of Nations. Each region would have their own constitution, elect their own parliament, control their own natural resources and cultivate whatever economic model that suit their culture. This political template was properly laid by the British for future growth of Nigeria on ceding independence. But unfortunately, for selfish reasons and ignorance’s the model was destroyed by subsequent Nigerian rulers.
