Nigeria was divided into three major entities that is based on major tribal groups that were prominent at that time which are Igbo , Yoruba and Hausa or North , East and West .
- Nepotism , Tribalism and Discrimination are all related to ethnicity bias of people that are highly placed in political office . political position are given out to individuals based on who knows who .
- There is infrastructure decadency and under development . Development could be in terms of provision of social amenities like electricity, pipe borne water, good roads, hospitals, and schools. When ethnicity is practiced, the government favors one area against another. This is bad. It should therefore be discouraged.
