With all the talk of restructuring Nigeria , secession and Biafra, it appears that poverty, lack of opportunity and the unequal distribution of money and resources are key factors.
Some may make this a discussion about tribes( why are we so tribal?)
But ultimately, to build a strong nation, any nation, the citizens really need to identify...to feel as though they matter ( and they do)
