For a while now, there has been the issue of the division in Nigeria due to one reason or the other in the country. Presently, the most heated area of the secession is the Yoruba region. This is what made me to check history and in this article, we will check out the people that signed the amalgamation document.

Well the Yorubas should stop creating problem because Nigeria will never split. They amalgamation document was not sole signed by the Hausas alone, they are many Yoruba involved in the signing.

There were just 28 people involed in the signing of the Amalgamation document in 1914. Six were Nigerians, the rest were British including Lord Fredrick Lugard.

Below are the names of Nigerians that were engaged in the signing of the amalgamation document:

1. Abubakar Shehu of Borno.

2. Hon. R Henshaw Obong of Calabar.

3. His Highness, Oladugbolu the Alaafin of Oyo.

4. Hon. Maiturare Sarkin Mussulumi, and Sultan of Sokoto.

5. Usman Danmaje, who later became Emir of Kano.

6. Sir Kitoyi Ajasa, he was a legal counselor addressing African people group in Lagos.

The Amalgamation was endorsed in 1914, that was the point at which the Southern Nigeria was joined together with the Northern Nigeria Protectorate to form a single nation known today as Nigeria. Also, in relation to the above names, you can unmistakably see the names of Nigerians that signed the Amalgamation documents and Yoruba Oba was even among.

On seeing the names of individuals that signed the Amalgamation documents, you will concur with me that the Yorubas should stop ccreating the issue of secession.
