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.

Explaining why he chose United African Republic, Jokotoye said Nigeria is made up of hundreds of ethnic groups that need to be united.

As an alternative, he suggested that Nigeria could also choose United Alkebulan Republic (meaning: United Mother of Mankind Republic) as its new name.

While the dialect where Jokotoye drew the name “Alkebulan” from is still unknown, the UNITED AFRICAN REPUBLIC as a proposed new name for Nigeria is already gaining prominence and may be adopted if the country is restructured, true Federalism approved and demands of all ethnic groups are met, some analysts say.
