Rename Nigeria’s six geopolitical zones, group urges FG

1 min read

A peacebuilding think tank, the Foundation for Peace Professionals, also known as PeacePro, has called on the Federal Government to name the six geopolitical zones of Nigeria after historic memory.

In a statement by its Executive Director, Mr Abdulrazaq Hamzat, the group said the description of Nigeria’s six geopolitical zones simply as North West, South West, North East, South East, North Central, and South-South is of no political significance, hence the need to adopt a more politically conscious approach to closing the gap of regional agitation.

According to Hamzat, the Federal Government should name the six zones properly to reflect the desires and aspirations of the people.

“People in various zones of Nigeria identify themselves by certain names and descriptions, and running away from such political identities will naturally make them feel entitled to those identities.
