@mabdul5159 commented: “This is what we call unity in diversity…! And this is how Nigeria is supposed to be for any citizen to be or live in every state in Nigeria no matter his background or religion. But here we are busy criticizing one another with hate-speech instead showing love & unity.”

@Kayodespeaks wrote: “Only those that haven’t travel wide in this country will be shouting divide divide this country without considering their brothers in potiskum, mongunno, azare, okigwe,badagry etc.”

Another user commented, “We are strong together. All we need is good leadership to chat a new Nigeria.”

However, others were of opposing opinion, that Nigeria has long passed the era when all ethnic groups and tribes loved each other. @Ayabia_Ikem is one of those with such opinions.

He wrote: “Nothing to celebrate. In the first Republic we had an Hausa Councilor in Enugu! Can we dare that now? We have moved many steps backwards since then.”
