As Nigerians continue to debate the possible breakup of the country, a new group has come out to advocate for Cross River and Akwa Ibom states to merge as one nation.

The group, Akwa Abasi Mm’udim, said in a press release on Friday that a new nation that would emerge from the two states should be called the New Jerusalem Kingdom.

The group attacked Mboho Mkparawa Ibibio for proposing that Akwa Ibom should join other states in the south-south to form a new nation if Nigeria eventually breaks up.

The group, which described Mboho Mkparawa Ibibio’s proposal as “evil accord”, said that Cross River and Akwa Ibom were capable of surviving as a unified nation.

It likened Cross River and Akwa Ibom to the biblical Israelites and said that the two states “must not be slaves to anybody”.

Akwa Ibom was part of the old Cross River State before the former was carved out as a new state in 1987 by the military administration of Gen. Ibrahim Babangida. Both states, which somehow share a common history, language and culture, are often jointly referred to as AkwaCross.
