By Chief Obafemi Awolowo,

“Nigeria is not a nation but a group of separate and distinct nationalities. It is a mere geographical expression. And each of these nationalities has it’s own distinct history, culture, religion, characteristics and ways. There is as much of a difference between the Yoruba and the Fulani as there is between the German and the Turk.”
