- The woman, who wore a hijab, spoke the language like an Igbo woman during the friendly chat
- Nigerians flooded the comment section after the video was shared on Twitter as some of them are of the opinion that the people should be united instead of preaching division
A heartwarming video has emerged on social media in which a northerner who has spent 25 years in Enugu could be seen speaking fluent Igbo as she conversed with a man from the southeast.
The unidentified woman who has stayed in Enugu for 25 years engaged in a friendly chat with the Igbo man who asked her series of questions in the course of their conversation.
This video has shown that unity among different ethnic groups in the country should be a unique feature Nigerians should be known for.
Sharing the video on its Twitter page, PM News wrote:

"Only those that haven't travel wide in this country will be shouting divide divide this country without considering their brothers in potiskum, mongunno, azare, okigwe,badagry etc.
"We are strong together. All we need is good leadership to chat a new Nigeria."
Another Twitter user with the handle @mabdul5159 commented:
"This is what we call unity in diversity...! And this is how Nigeria is supposed to be for any citizen to be or live in every state in Nigeria no matter his background or religion. But here we are busy criticizing one another with hate-speech instead showing love & unity."
"If we strive hard, we can turn hating into accommodating . Nigeria is big enough for everyone of us-if only we want that."
Tweep with the handle @ayabie_ikem, however, said there was nothing to celebrate in the video, adding that Nigeria has moved many steps backwards.
"Nothing to celebrate. In the first Republic we had an Hausa Councilor in Enugu! Can we dare that now? We have moved many steps backwards since then."
