The central argument of the paper is that the Nigerian state has consistently failed in its efforts to address the structurally-defective pattern of governance characterized largely by imbalance and lopsidedness, particularly in the allocation and distribution of human and material (public) resources. A situation where a country of this nature is being monopolized largely by one section or reign for the past four decades is a source of concern to many especially those from the other geo-political zones.
Key words: Ethnic identity, modern statecraft, Igbo Nation.
