Must have thought United in the name makes the country rich. United African Republic (UAR) like the United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, United States. Lol. Someone spent weeks working on that idea. Probably even got a grant. Lol. I am tired.

So our problem as a country is how to change name from Nigeria to United African Republic. This is the height of madness

For a country that’s on the verge of division, United African Republic is the most ironic name to use as a replacement for Nigeria.

Am i the only one who thinks that change of name of country is not what the house should be thinking about? We have emergency issues that should be attended to. It’s totally useless if it’s United African Republic or Nigeria as far as it’s the same shenanigans we are suffering
