Veteran Nollywood actor Chidi Mokeme stirred up a conversation on Twitter that got a lot of people talking after querying what exactly south-south means.
The former TV show host noted that the term south-south was nothing but a creation by the Nigerian state used to cause division and confusion amongst the people of the southeast.
Chidi Mokeme is an Igbo man from Anambra state who believes Nigeria was better to run as a country when it was practising the regional system of governance.
In his tweet, he slammed the current federal system of government while noting that the coinage of the south-south region as a geopolitical zone on its own is a scam.
