Nigeria, the Heart of Tribalism: Sisi Yemmie and Her Spouse Barred from Vote Unit for Ethnic Appearance.
in a shocking display of tribalism, Sisi Yemmie, and her spouse were recently denied access to a voting unit in Lagos state, Nigeria. A video capturing the incident has since gone viral on the internet, sparking outrage and concern over the prevalence of ethnic discrimination in the country.
According to reports, the couple’s physical appearance was the sole basis for their denial of entry, as they were deemed to resemble members of the Igbo tribe. This troubling incident highlights the deeply ingrained nature of tribalism in Nigerian society, which continues to undermine the country’s progress and unit.
It is important to note that the Igbo people have long advocated for the creation of their own independent nation called Biafra, due to years of marginalization and mistreatment by the Nigerian government. The denial of basic rights, such as the right to vote, based solely on one’s appearance further highlights the systemic discrimination faced by certain ethnic groups in Nigeria.
The incident with Sisi Yemmie and her husband is just one example of the many challenges facing Nigeria in its quest for greater unity and inclusivity.
