Dear @Areafada1 I am shocked to find that you also subscribe to this supremacist fallacy that is the bedrock of #Nigeria's woes. I refer to
your unreasoned induction that Igbos are the "most patriotic ethnic group in Nigeria today". While I have no problems praising your brethren
I wonder how you came to the conclusion that other ethnic groups in #Nigeria are not as patriotic as Igbos. Of course, this generalisation
like most others, is as false as it is patently dangerous. It is a pitfall prospective leaders like you must be careful to avoid.
I have no doubt that there are great Igbo patriots, but there are indeed great patriots from other ethnic groups too. To say a group is most
patriotic implies that there are groups that are less patriotic. With over 250 ethnicities in Nigeria, I wonder how you intend to outlay
each one on your National Patriotism Grid. I wonder what your algorithms would be. I recall that you recently led a protest to Abuja with
a good number of #Nigerian youth from all over behind you. How do you look them in the face and assign their patriotism quotient based on
surnames and Local Government Areas? Of course, you were wrong Sir and I hope you can admit your error. We all have our biases, but we must
learn to rein them in. This statement may have betrayed your bias, but it doesn't change the fact that you are a good Nigerian and a worthy
influencer. I just hope to remind you that you have signed up to be part of the solution and that you can't afford to b part of the problems
#Nigeria's major problem is painted in ethnic hues. We must deescalate this. No group is more-anything than another, no one is born superior
to the other. Believing the contrary is borderline fascism. Excellence is found only in our character and readiness to love the other.
Thank you for your attention.

With kind regards.
