In 2016, the Middle-Belt had also unveiled its own currency, which it has now redesigned to include Midwest.
It has also released its official flag and coat of arms, photos of which have started going viral on social media.
Massive social media reactions have already begun trailing the proposed creation of The Midwest Republic.

I just heard on the radio that the middle belt now has its own coat of arms,flag and currency!
Nigeria has never been this divided!
And it points to the actions and inactions of one person!
Leadership is key to national development,don’t allow anyone gaslight you.

NEW: Middle-Belt releases new flag, new currency calls it Mid-West republic.
This has the writing of Gov. Orton but ok.
And why are major Newspapers not picking this?
