Gaddafi Gaff Anger Nigeria After He Proposes A Split Country Solution

March 29, 2010

Libya (ChattahBox) – Colonel Muammar Gaddafi has sparked outrage once again by saying that Nigeria should split their country down the middle to end conflict between religions.

According to Gaddafi, Nigeria should follow the example of Yugoslavia and separate the country into two halves, giving one half to the Christians, and one to the Muslims.

He maintains that this would be a solution to the deadly conflicts that have left hundreds dead this year alone, as riots in Jos were followed by massacres in surrounding villages.

The attacks are not thought to be religious-based, but rather conflicts over land rights as Christian villages expand.The most recent slaughter of 500 by men with machetes was said to be retaliation by a Muslim group for some of the deaths in the January riots.

Nigeria has called the statement by Col Gaddafi “irresponsible”.

“His theatrics and grandstanding at every auspicious occasion have become too numerous to recount,” a ministry official said of the quote.

Gaddafi is well known for his outlandish proposals, and drew both ire and amusement in September of last year when he called for the UN to abolish Switzerland and divide its’ land and assets among neighboring countries.

    I have a better idea. Send all the Muslims to live in Libya. Not just the Nigerian Muslims; ALL of them, from all over the world. Since Gaddaffi Duck is such a great leader, he’ll be able to forge a unified, prosperous nation out of them.
