Will A Confederal System Of Government Work In Nigeria?

26

2023 Presidential election is a year away and as usual Nigeria politicians have started to remember the masses and what their jobs entails. from the usual photo with the market woman to carrying that malnourished baby and walking the street like the average Nigerian while they spent 3 years running the citizens to death and another 1 year campaigning but ignore the obvious problems that needs to be addressed. Erlier today I read on twitter that Bola Tinubu donated 50 million naira to victims of recent bandits attacks. Khadijah Okunnu-Lamidi has made known her intention to run for Presidency ( who in the elephant's ass is that?), Kingsley Moghalu is out again as well as several of them. Niccolo Machiavelli said in his book The Prince, “It is not titles that honor men, but men that honor titles.” You see our leaders only worry about their pockets and power that they dont even know how to carry about their antics with flare and admiration. Terrorism in the north, highway kidnapping, high rate of poverty that crime now looks like the only way yet they cant get their head out of their diarrhea buttocks to fix the problem. Confederalsim. A confederation is a system of government in which sovereign states delegate power to a central government for specific purposes. In the last 6 years the nation has never been divided from tribal conflicts especially the igbos agitation of Biafra, genocide on several northern tribes and the recent #Endsars saga and the ban of twitter 2023 election can either save us as a nation of spiral us down a path we cannot recover from. Grant the north, east, west and south autonomous power to decide economical, religious and security affairs within its territories but use the federal government to regulate trade between these regions and external relations. “There is no avoiding war, it can only be postponed to the advantage of your enemy.”-Niccolo Machiavelli's The Prince. To the gluttons in power this might seem like giving away power to those they attempt to keep it away from but if only we had a student of The soft power theory and The Prince tactics we can actually pull this off. a confederal system to give control over internal challenges to those who for years have sought this kind of influence over their own affairs whereas the federal system keeps trade relations and cultural exchange within the people together and manage external relations. To some extent it will give the igbos autonomous power, give the south control over the oil trade, give the north the right to implement sharia law and give the west what they seek. “The lion cannot protect himself from traps, and the fox cannot defend himself from wolves. One must therefore be a fox to recognize traps, and a lion to frighten wolves.” - Niccolo` Machiavelli.
