I agree with the slant of your argument. A very narrow definition of self-determination that means “our country” can be unhelpful, even worse calamitous. Case in point, South Sudan and Somalia.

If my ethnic group, the Mada people were to secede from Nigeria, I can guarantee the government of “Madaland” won’t be any better than what is obtainable in Nigeria.

We need to be more imaginative as a people and be more sensitive to people and their idiosyncrasies.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
