Nigerians are reacting over a proposed change of name of the country to the United African Republic.
VANTAGE NEWS learnt that Adeleye Jokotoye during a Southwest zone public hearing in Lagos State submitted a proposal to the House of Representatives for a change of Nigeria’s name.
The proposal suggested that Nigeria’s name be changed to the United African Repoublic or United Alkebulan Republic.
See how Nigerians on twitter are reacting below:
Must have thought United in the name makes the country rich. United African Republic (UAR) like the United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, United States. Lol. Someone spent weeks working on that idea. Probably even got a grant. Lol. I am tired.

Am i the only one who thinks that change of name of country is not what the house should be thinking about? We have emergency issues that should be attended to. It's totally useless if it's United African Republic or Nigeria as far as it's the same shenanigans we are suffering

Changing Nigeria name to United African Republic is a good idea only if it would be different countries united as one like the US.
Biafra as a country
Oduduwa as a country
Arewa as a country
South South as a country.
Middle belt states go join any country dey want. 😌

Renaming Nigeria is not the problem but are we really United to be named the United African Republic?
What happened to Disorganised African Republic???

Just at the time the country is battling with insecurity, kidnappings, banditry, harsh economy and corruption, our lawmakers busy thinking of how to rename Nigeria to United African Republic.
We always joke too much. Get serious and fix this country.. 😕

Is it because countries like United States , united kingdom , united Arab Emirates are successful that's why they want to change Nigeria to United African republic? pic.twitter.com/9Y66whdod0
