Adamu Garba wants Nigeria to change its Name to Nigritia,
Taking to his Twitter account tuesday, Garba argued that Nigeria is a Name given by colonial masters and has no significance in the lives of the people of the Country.
He said instead of Nigeria, the Name should be changed to:
“The Nigritian Federation” or simply NIGRITIA stating further that the Country was known as Nigritia before it was changed by Lady Lugard, the wife of Lord Lugard.
Garba submitted that if he emerges as President of Nigeria in 2023, the proposal for a Name change will be submitted to National Assembly by his government.
He wrote: How about we rebrand this Country, properly federalize it and rename it to “The Nigritia Federation” or simply NIGRITIA. Afterall, Nigritia is our ancient name before Lady Lugard renamed it Nigeria “
