    We Were Never One Country – Bukola Saraki. Agree Or Not?

    Bukola Saraki

    Former Senate President Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has stated that Nigeria will remain a work in progress because it was formed by the British from two separate countries for administrative purposes.

    Saraki said this while responding to a question on Nigeria’s progress since its Independence on October 1, 1960, during an Independence Day lunch with diverse Nigerian youths, held in Abuja at the weekend said that Nigeria should not be compared with some other countries that do not have diversity from day one in terms of its process.

    “I read a book on how Nigeria was formed and I realized that we were never one country. We were two countries but it was efficient for the British to bring the two countries together for administrative purposes,” Saraki said.

    “It made sense at that time to bring the two countries together for commercial purposes. From day one, Nigeria is going to be a work in progress because it’s a country with so many diversities. So we can’t compare ourselves with some other countries that don’t have diversity right from time.

    “A society that continues to allow that, where are the values for hard work? Where’s the value for doing things right? What message are we sending? The message that we must cut corners? As a country, we need to redefine that.”

    What is your opinion on this? Let’s discuss.
