It is hard to understand why Nigerians fail to realize that the country was already officially divided under Obasanjo.
The constitution of Nigeria states clearly and unambiguously that no state can practice its on religion.
Even the Federal Government is forbidden from practicing any form of religion.
But we know that several of the Northern States in Nigeria follow the Sharia Law.
This implies that Northern States that practice sharia law are not obliged to obey or follow the constitution of Nigeria. Otherwise they would not have a defined state religion.
Whether we accept it or not Nigeria was already officially divided under Obasanjo.
It is therefore only a matter of time that the social injustice, ignorance, illiteracy, maladministration and widespread poverty across the country would widen and make visible the fractures that have been created by the religio-politics of the Northern states. The time draws near.
