The proposal was submitted by a tax consultant, identified as Adeleye Jokotoye to the committee at the South West Zonal Public Hearing in Lagos on Wednesday, June 2, 2021.
During his presentation, he stated that Nigeria’s existing name was imposed by its previous colonial owners and that it should be replaced.
He said that changing the country’s name would symbolize a new beginning both physically and mentally.
“At this crossroads in our history, it is mandatory that we change our name to reflect a new beginning which will be ushered in with a new constitution,”
Mr. Jokotoye said Nigeria is made up of hundreds of ethnic groups that need to be unified, which is why he picked the United African Republic.
He proposed that Nigeria change its name to the United Alkebulan Republic (meaning: United Mother of Mankind Republic) as an alternative.
Mr. Jokotoye also proposed constitutional modifications to reflect fiscal federalism, state or regional resource and taxation control, the elimination of the immunity provision, and a revision of the Exclusive Legislative List.
Well, Nigerians have already trashed the idea to have the name of the country which has been held for 61 years after independence.
