    Nigerian is a 3 nations, the East, the West and the North forced up to become what it is today. Nobody should take undue advantage of this. Emmdiate family members do break apart when necesary. What about it if it break apart ? Nigeria cannot be force to be one by use of gate-speach bill. Its all nonsence. Its like the 9th senate has no better job to do.
