The House of Representatives’ Special Committee on Constitution Review has received a proposal to change Nigeria’s name to the United African Republic.
Adeleye Jokotoye, a tax consultant, submitted the proposal to the committee at the South West Zonal Public Hearing in Lagos on Wednesday, June 2, 2021.
While presenting the proposal, he said Nigeria’s current name was an imposition of its past colonial masters and should be changed. He said a change of name for the country would physically and psychologically reflect a new beginning.
Explaining why he chose the United African Republic, Jokotoye said Nigeria is made up of hundreds of ethnic groups that need to be united. As an alternative, he suggested that Nigeria could also choose the United Alkebulan Republic (meaning: United Mother of Mankind Republic) as its new name.
