The Nigerian House of Representatives received a proposal to change Nigeria's name on June 2, 2021. 

The proposal was submitted to the South West Zonal Public Hearing in Lagos on Wednesday June 2, 2021 by Adeleye Jokotoye, a tax consultant. 

In the proposal Jokotoye suggested that the name should be changed to "United African Republic"or" United Alkebulan Republic" which means United Mother of Mankind Republic. 

While stating his reasons, he said that Nigeria's current name was a name given to her by her past colonial masters and should be changed.

According to him a change of name for the country would physically and psychologically reflect a new beginning.

He said:
"At this crossroads in our history, it is mandatory that we change our name to reflect a new beginning which will be ushered in with a new constitution," 

He explained that he chose United African Republic, because Nigeria is made up of hundreds of ethnic groups that needs to be united, so therefore making UAR suitable. 

He went further to suggest amendments of the constitution to remove immunity clause, and also to enact constitution that will reflect fiscal federalism, state or regional resource and taxation control. 

He strongly believes that if this is done that Nigeria will be much better.
