The Abia Expulsions: Controversy brews

25 October 2011

The decision of the Abia State government to expel non indigenes stirs controversy and shows the readiness of a State that styles itself as God’s own State to flout God’s basic injunction to love thy neigbour.

IT was a shocking action supposedly prompted by basic survival instincts. It was also shocking coming from a state priding itself as God’s Own State. After all, God’s basic injunction is to love your neighbor as yourself.

Indeed, the decision of the Abia State government to sack all non-indigenes in the state public service has again raised questions about the viability of many of Nigeria’s 36 states given that economic considerations were primary to the decision.
