Famous Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe has shared her thought about the country’s plans to alter its name from Nigeria to United Africans Republic (UAR).
Recall that Nigerian National Assembly has allegedly received a proposal to change the country’s name from Nigeria to the United Africans Republic (UAR).
Newzandar News understands that the proposal for the change of the country’s name was submited by a tax consultant in Lagos State, Adeleye Jokotoye on Wednesday.
