Fundamentally, separation is most certainly not all about war.
Over time, research and study have realized that a densely populated nation tends to split up prior to the demand for independence existence by ethnic states.
Nations threaten to separate or split when their people seem repeatedly hopeless in the nation they are. They become readily embroiled into secession after many or countless constraints.
When secession is mentioned, the potential negative impact comes to mind without gainful thoughts that Secession comes with its huge peaceful and material advantages.
In fact, some governments permit secessionists to organize, contest elections and even to pursue independence through political process. A lot of developed countries today have their split history, separating from her parent country leaving room for better and progressive growth and development of the ‘bud nation as long as its intentions were deliberate and dignified.
In 1830 Belgium separated from the Netherlands
In 1965, Singapore split off from Malaysia
In 1921, Ireland split off from the United Kingdom, and (possibly in the future) there will be secession of Scotland.
In 1944, Iceland split from Denmark with remarkable ease.
In 1947, the British India Dominion was partitioned into Indian Pakistan.
In 1965, Singapore split from Malaysia Ethiopia and EritreaSudan and South Sudan are now separate countries
USSR is now broken down into several countries.
The advantages of peaceful secession are increasingly obvious even though at the initials it comes with a lot of struggles, concerns and sacrifices.
In the case of Nigeria, secession is plausible and would most definitely create a healthy competitive development among the original component part, the North/West/East each making useful progress while competing with the others.
This is what we long for. Opting out is not about war! Its about FREEDOM! When you no longer comfortable with the state of things, there is nothing wrong in opting out. This is all the South ask for.
Separation as an avenue for a healthy competition for development as the case of Singapore and Malaysia, India and Pakistan, Norway/Denmark/Switzerland.
Is Nigeria an Overgrown Nation?
The Population size and density does not necessarily equate a nations success and global powers. Time again, it has appeared a failed determinant for Nigeria as these factors appears to affect the nations stability and quality of life; a nation too populated and great for its present capacity.Vividly consider the Wolds largest nations today, including US, China, Brazil, Indonesia and Pakistan, we can only boast of US as been a wealthy and industrialized nation followed by China.
