Check The Proposed Names For Nigeria, As National Assembly Set To Change Nigeria Name
During the nationwide ongoing constitution review which is being handled by the House of Representatives' Special Committee on Constitution Review, the committee has now received a proposal to change Nigeria's name to the United African Republic or United Alkebulan 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.
"At this crossroads in our history, it is mandatory that we change our name to reflect a new[b] beginning which will be ushered in with a new constitution,"[/b] he said.
As an alternative, he suggested that Nigeria could also choose United Alkebulan Republic (meaning: United Mother of Mankind Republic) as its new name.
