Stereotypic Nepotistic Politricks

When will the traditional stereotypes stop?

Why do we limit our choices for national elective positions?

Despite our huge diversifications?

We do North and South

Why can't we do East and West?

Why should north only bring a Muslim?

And south always a Christian?

Why can't a Christian President from Bauchi

Pair with the Muslim vice from Auchi?

Why can't the Muslim from Abakaliki

be viced by a Christian from Maiduguri?

What's wrong with having a Fulani Christian combine with an Ibo Muslim?

Are there no African traditional religionists who can lead the team? 

What about faithfuls of Ogun, Sango, Okija, Olokun, Osun? 

Like wise Iskokis, Iwya, Itse

Do Eckists, Rosicrucians, Cross bearers, Baha'i, Hindustanis, exist?

What about Atheist, Masons holy Arousa and Buddhist ? 

Beyond the psychological feeling of belonging

what have the people gained from ethnic and religious inclined following and voting?
