Nigerians have taken to Twitter to express their opinions following breaking of the news that the House of Representatives was considering a proposal to change the country name to UAR.

The proposal suggests United African Republic or United Alkebulan Republic as Nigeria’s new name.

Adeleye Jokotoye, a tax consultant, submitted the proposal to the committee at the South West Zonal Public Hearing in Lagos on Wednesday, June 2, 2021.

While presenting the proposal, he said Nigeria’s current name was an imposition of its past colonial masters and should be changed.

He said a change of name for the country would physically and psychologically reflect a new beginning.

As an alternative, he suggested that Nigeria could also choose United Alkebulan Republic (meaning: United Mother of Mankind Republic) as its new name.

Nigerians have since taken the news as fodder for jokes while others condemned the idea.
