  19. This kind of tribal segregation is unnecessary,especially now that the world is fastly becoming a global village.
    If you continue with this, the people united people of Ilorin Metropolis would blame you for the exclusion of Ilorin (A tribe that unifies the Hausa, Fulani, Yoruba, Nupe, Barba and other tribes living peacefully) tribe.
    Thus, I suggest you stop unnecessary racial discrimination and work towards global unification as we have in Ilorin Megalopolis.
