Perspective | The terminus of the failed Lugardian experiment of 1914

This post was made in response to the debates and outrage sparked by the reported Arabic Language Test in a recent Police Recruitment Test, and the Executive Bill being pushed in the National Assembly to cede all the Rivers and River-beds of Nigeria to the so-called “Federal Government”.

The Federation of Nigeria collapsed in 1966 and so the pretence that there is a “Federal Government” in the Unitarist State Nigeria had since become is simply a matter of self-delusion.

This 4-Bloc Map is the Formation for Post-Nigeria Arrangements already in high gear. It is the comprehensive solution to the toxic, defunct Federation of Nigeria.


Those in the Green Bloc who choose to go back to the Stone Age and who therefore simultaneously imposed Sharia since year 2000, are at liberty to proceed without let. It is called Self-Determination.

The others in the Brown+Blue+Purple Blocs, who seek to join the rest of the 21st Century Community in the search for the safety, welfare and advancement of their Peoples, are also at liberty to proceed, unhindered. It is also called Self-Determination.

If after 104 years of British-imposed coexistence with others the Feudal/Sharia/Caliphate Green Bloc refuse to learn that human life is sacrosanct; that People have to earn a living and that all men are born equal; that knowledge is better than ignorance; that truth prevails over falsehood; that forward looking societies reward hard work and punish laziness and that such societies promote excellence and not mediocrity; then they will never learn.

It will also amount to absolute folly for the anyone to expect that the rest of the Nigeria will continue to bear the ever-increasing burden of carrying the debilitating baggage represented by the preferences of the Green Bloc whilst also having to endure the killings and backwardness inflicted upon all by the belligerent, arrogant and obdurate Green Bloc.

There must now be an Interment to the failed and totally unworkable Lugardian Experiment of 1914 called which died since 1966 but instead of being buried, was allowed to decompose into the Union of Death and Attrition the World calls “Nigeria”.

Welcome to ARABA !.
