US-based actor Chidi Mokeme has argued that the coinage ‘South-South’ is one of the biggest scams in Nigeria.
He avowed the term was nothing more than ‘a construct of the Nigerian State to create confusion and division among the people of the South-East and South-South regions.’
The filmmaker noted the division intended with the creation of the ‘scam construct’ was already working as he revealed that he was already being dragged for an autocorrect which he claimed to be an oversight.
“This is one of the biggest SCAMS in Nigeria. And one day the question must be asked, and we must have the conversation – What is SOUTH SOUTH? It is nothing but a construct of the Nigerian State to create confusion & division among the people of the Southeast region. #ChidiSense
“So I was wondering what all the fuss was about until I traced it back to this tweet right here. I was going to start a convo on the disservice of going from the regional system to what we have now, but somehow got distracted and ended up leaving this lone tweet up here, but mehn!
“That last paragraph of that tweet was meant to be “It is nothing but a construct of the Nigerian State to create confusion & division among the people of the SOUTHEAST and “SOUTH SOUTH” region.” One autocorrect oversight and I see fangs and claws everywhere. Division is working,” Mokeme tweeted.
