Former presidential candidate in the 2019 general election, Prof. Kingsley Moghalu has urged the federation to revisit 1914 Amalgamation and events of 1966-1970 if she wants to get things right in the country.
Prof. Moghalu made the assertion on Sunday in a statement made available to BVI Channel 1.
He said that Nigeria cannot navigate the future successfully without a reckoning with its past.
“We need to look into the Amalgamation of 1914 and the events of 1966-1970, recognize how these events turned Nigeria into a progressively failing Union, and take steps to reposition for success,” he said.
Explaining why it is pertinent that the issues of Amalgamation be revisited, cited the American example involving the recently murdered George Floyd.
“This is part of the pursuit of “a more perfect union”. It can be controversial. It can be painful. But it’s necessary,” he noted.
